Jewelry Photography

NOTE: I am no longer doing portrait photography – this page is strictly for historic interest.

Though I’ve retired from jewelry photography, it’s fun and challenging. It is often considered to be one of the hardest fields of commercial photography – most of the items are tiny, with highly reflective mirror-like metal and gemstones that might be clear, translucent, colored, smooth, rough, faceted, etc.

I once heard jewelry photography described as a “meticulous craft” and I can’t argue with that description. Jewelry photography is definitely a specialized field of endeavor and it takes patience and obsessive control of lighting.

Other products I’ve photographed commercially include a huge variety of things, from gold-dipped roses, hand-made pottery up to the interior of a million dollar loft.
