Jewelry and Diamond Photography

Every detail of your jewelry is essential, from a diamond’s unique facets to the intricate metalwork. Our team applies the perfect combination of lighting, art direction, and styling to create images worthy of the beauty of your jewelry.

We utilize high-resolution digital cameras that record remarkable levels of detail. We’re able to shoot, compile, and retouch on location in our Chicago studio, providing quick turnaround of beautiful images.

Art-directed product photography

Our approach to photography is grounded in the belief that with a solid understanding of your objectives, we can capture the appropriate tone and use these visuals to tell the right story. Oftentimes this involves sketching out storyboards, casting talent, building sets, and hair and makeup.

Jewelry retouching

We are artisans at repairing blemishes, color grading, and tone balancing, ensuring that your products are seen in their best light. We convert white gold to yellow or rose gold and can change the color of gemstones, saving you time and money. We can also deliver all items for catalog work with backgrounds removed.

A photography team that understands how Brand works

At its core, an impactful photograph is about communication — using visuals to convey a story. Our approach to photography is grounded in the belief that with a solid understanding of your objectives, we can capture the appropriate tone and use these visuals to tell the right story. Oftentimes this involves sketching out scenes and prepping alternate plans for unexpected circumstances. Day of, our goal is taking photos that are less about selling a product, and more about making people feel something — emotion that is then associated with your brand.

As a photographer, I’m less concerned about taking photos that sell a product or service. I’m more concerned about capturing a feeling and connecting it with a bigger message. Photos have the power to portray emotions — and help our clients stay relevant, visible, and matter more in the communities they serve.

Mattering is all about filtering what’s important — not only what’s important to our target audience, but to everyone involved in making the creative, as well. I want to be there for the client and make sure the things we’re producing make sense, while at the same time listening and coaching to keep everyone focused and energized.

There’s a big difference between making work that looks nice and making work that’s accomplishing what it needs to by hitting the right objectives. I’m able to create meaningful design work because I’m involved in the process — I get to know the client and the company culture, as well as the audience, helping me understand what matters. From there, it’s about how far I can push it to make something that’s interesting and impactful.
