Lt General Mark Poffley O.B.E very graciously accepted my invitation to sit for a portrait at the M.O.D London Headquarters in WhiteHall. Poffley was commissioned into the Royal Army Ordnance Corps in 1985. The General has served in the British Army for 31 years being deployed in every major conflict in the past three decades from The Gulf War, Bosnian War, Insurgency in the Republic of Macedonia, War in Afghanistan and the Iraq War.
Lieutenant General Poffley, Portrait Sitting (Rory Lewis Military Portrait Photographer 2019)
My aim was to capture a portrait of Poffley as a leader, taking inspiration from Military Portrait Artists such as George Dawewith strong and bold expressions and body language, I also shot from lower angles to emphasise height. If you are in need of a portrait photographer with a historical perspective please contact me for a quote, I am available throughout the year in the the UK & USA.
