Jewellery Photography

Jewellery photography and watch photography are specialist areas requiring particular skills. As a jewellery photographer I photograph jewellery, watches & accessories for jewellery brands, designers and retailers throughout the UK.

In an industry built on trust, I work with clients who have trusted me for years to professionally deliver images that enhance their products. Images I create for clients appear regularly in consumer and trade magazine advertising, in brochures and on websites, point of sale displays and exhibition posters.

Product, model and lifestyle jewellery images are created in my studio in Leeds and on location.

Post-production and retouching is done in-house, and in addition to finishing images to a luxury level, services includes creating composite images, adding backgrounds, modifying prototypes and adding brand name and logo engraving.

“Good images will reflect the value of the product, the style of the piece and the prestige of the brand but whatever their purpose, images will always reflect the skill, effort and budget that has been invested in producing them”.

Jewellery brochure and advertisement design

I provide a complete photography, design and artwork service for brochures, magazine advertising and POS or exhibition posters, for those clients who wish me to photograph their jewellery and deliver colour-corrected print-ready artwork to give straight to their printer or publication.

Your brief can be as simple as providing the pieces, specifying number of pages and providing words and captions. I can make the creative decisions about how best to arrange and show the pieces, giving you options and laying out the pages, adding backgrounds and typesetting copy and captions.  For model images I can work with you to find a suitable model. Artwork is delivered in colour-corrected industry standard PDF format to meet printers specifications.

Please browse the portfolio above to see examples of commissioned photography and my brochure and advertisement design work.

If you would like learn more about professional jewellery photography you can do so in this guide that I was asked to write for “The Jeweller” magazine.
