Vogue Italia - Precious Shots
Franca Sozzani Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia made a personal request for photographers with a unique and original voice to illustrate jewellery.
From the many thousands of entries I was one of the lucky ten selected. I have long had a love affair with jewellery. A passion I have inherited from my mother.
This passion for exquisite pieces of jewellery has developed into a fascination. Each piece is a work of art, crafted with hard won skill and imagination. It is a very unique field of photography. Each gem stone possessing individual characteristics and charm that must be brought to light and captured by the photographer. Allowing the true beauty of a jewelled creation to shine.
Photographing jewellery is an exercise in passion and technical precision. A combination that thrills!
