He has appeared in numerous TV commercials, such as FA, Jägermeister and Michelob[12] and in music videos, among others for David Guetta and Kylie Minogue. Lewis was also part of two art projects by the photographer/artist Spencer Tunick and appeared on a double page in issue 52 of Visionaire,[13] shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Caramelo.
