Last week I drove across to Petersfield to photograph Louisa, a Hampshire based jeweller in her studio.  Louisa is an extremely inspirational young lady that hand makes the most exquisite sterling silver pieces.  So exquisite in fact that I have commissioned her to transform a diamond bracelet into a gorgeous rustic ring for me!

I have done some product photography for Louisa before and this time it was such a joy to watch a fellow professional at work being absolutely in her zen space.  In a professional portrait photo shoot I ask my subject to work as they would normally and I observe and capture the photographs that I feel explain their story in a beautiful way.  Louisa was super dexterous so I had to keep asking her to pause for some of the shots. We had the music playing, the blow torch blazing and all manner of tools at work. Even the cat joined in on the action. I never knew that a ring starts from a single flat piece of sterling silver…

Prior to the photo shoot Louisa and I discussed her objectives for the photographs.  She is in the process of updating her existing website and wanted a series of black and white photographs capturing the details of her work and giving a flavour for who she is. As most of the photographs will be used as banner images in was important to ensure that things were photographed with a landscape orientation.

I do love my work! I get the opportunity to photograph such talented professionals and help them showcase their work in a way that helps other people understand what they offer and potentially positively transform their business. To book your own professional portrait please shoot me an email.

I know Louisa wanted black and white, but I couldn’t resist throwing in a bit of colour for the end… :-)
