Jewelry Photography Portfolio

How it Works

Hello and welcome! I'm a commercial jewelry photographer in the San Francisco area. We photograph products for ecommerce and catalog sales.

If you're local, we can meet to discuss details. If you're anywhere else in the 50 states, we can discuss details via email or phone, then ship us your items, we'll photograph and ship them safely back to you.

Why hire us as your jewelry photographer? We've photographed thousands of jewelry photos and are experienced with the lighting, have the necessary accessories and camera lenses required to take beautiful photographs of your jewelry.

We've photographed many different types and styles of jewelry - beads, gemstones, diamonds, resins, pearls, cubic zirconia, metals from golds and silvers to gunmetal, bronzes, copper, antiqued/blackened metals, etc.

Most product photographers have very few jewelry samples in their portfolio so before you make your decision, be sure to ask how much jewelry they’ve photographed.

Our jewelry photography services include final images on a white background or a transparent (png file) background, which will allow you to place the image on any colored background using an editing tool like Photoshop.

If you're not yet ready to outsource and want to DIY it, view our page on how to photograph jewelry for tips and equipment suggestions.
Please also sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the page. We send out email from time to time on tips and how-to's on jewelry photography.

Very happy with the quality of the photos! Ash was very easy to work with--super fast in responding to emails and answering questions I had along the way. He was happy to make a few edits and did not charge me for these changes. The pricing is very fair and he makes sure you are happy with the final product. Highly recommend his work and will surely be sending more jewelry his way in the future!
Frederick, MD

The photos are amazing & he ships back quickly. I have been wanting to take this step for my business for years, but was hesitant to shell out the money. However, Ash is so affordable AND high quality it was a no brainer! If you are hesitant about shipping out your jewelry don't be! Took wonderful care of my jewelry and sent it back in perfect condition! Also he is very open to any revisions you request. I very highly recommend working with him!

Hard to beat jewelry pictures for this price! Most photographers are much more expensive and jewelry can be tough to shoot, so this is a big time saver for us. Good quality work and very responsive.

We shipped our jewelry from New York. Ash sent all jewelry back and wrapped very well after shooting. The photos are totally beautiful and completed within just a few days. The best part is the price no one can beat. We've done a few times with Ash. We are very happy with the service.

You will not find better product photography anywhere in the bay area at this value. The process was super-efficient and professional - (1) mail products, (2) discuss image layouts and style, (3) samples images delivered to buyer for review, (4) revisions made if necessary, (5) final images delivered to buyer, (6) payment sent, and finally (7) products mailed back to buyer. The entire process took a little under two weeks, most of which was related to package delivery and arrival. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who's looking for fast, awesome product photography and I plan to work with him again in the near future!
Allston, MA

Great value!!! We shipped our rings all the way from Boston, MA. Ash was able to get quality pictures completed within only a few days (over the weekend too!). Very fast turn around for this type of service. The pictures came out beautiful and were high-definition. We will definitely return for our future jewelry lines

Excellent photography and communications. Highly recommend. We needed great images for our online store and Ash delivered.

Why Hire a Jewelry Photographer

The retail business is competitive:

When we last checked, Amazon had over 50,000 items listed in their Jewelry section and Etsy has over 1.7 million sellers - not all of them sell jewelry but the point is that there is a lot of jewelry out there. One way to stand out and stay competitive is to have professional product images.

Check out these stats from Forbes:

  • 67% of consumers say that an image is “very important” when selecting a product.
  • More than 50% of consumers think a high-quality photo of a product is more important than product information, long description, or ratings and reviews.

Since consumers are unable to see and touch the product in person, they want good product images.

Some common misconceptions...

1. Photographers won’t understand my business needs.

For most photographers, the job is 50% business and 50% photography. Most product photographers have a good understanding of retail. They see themselves as an extension of your business. So find someone who is excited to work with you on your project.

2. I can hire any photographer -- why do I need a jewelry photographer?

“Try to find a photographer that has worked with a product like yours before, and have examples of product shots you like before your meeting,” suggests Andreea Ayers, who runs Launch Grow Joy, a site for creative entrepreneurs. "Photography sets the tone for your store and tells your customer that you are committed to quality."

Jewelry is very different to shoot than most other products. You wouldn’t want someone with a portfolio full of athletic products shooting your jewelry. Jewelry photographers have the appropriate lighting and equipment needed. So hire someone who specializes in your type of product.

3. Professional photography is too expensive.

Professional photography is more affordable than you think. Many photographers offer packages that cater to a variety of budgets, ranging from large corporate gigs to packages tailored for small businesses.

Contact a few jewelry photographers and make sure you have a detailed understanding of their pricing and services. Having a few different quotes also helps you understand what you get at different price points.

4. They won’t accept my input.

You may find the idea of hiring a professional photographer intimidating. But asking questions and listening are part of a photographer's job. Find a jewelry photographer that has an extensive portfolio. During the initial conversation, keep a ear out for the photographers who exhibit patience when answering questions and listen to your needs.

5. I have to hire a photographer near me.

Jewelry photography is a niche, so finding a photographer close to you and within your budget might limit your options. Start looking locally but don't feel that those are your only options.

Look online to find a photographer who is comfortable working with out-of-state clients. They will guide you through the process of shipping your pieces and provide you with a timeline for photographing and returning the items. Search Google for jewelry photographers or contact us with any questions you may have.
