Customer Reviews

Excellent Viewing Material Review by Kerri

I didn't think that there could be much more to say about photography after viewing Jim's first How to Photograph Your Jewelry but I was absolutely wrong!!!

This one goes into further detail on photographing earrings in particular, graduated backgrounds, and other special techniques. Both of Jim's videos are such valuable training for any jewelry designer who wants to take great, compelling and eye catching photographs of their work.

I will keep these videos in my library and refer to them often for reference. Highly recommended if you are considering purchasing this course.

I look forward to more training by Jim.

Thank you so much!

I find the video excellent Review by Jean-Guy

I had rarely downloaded video's from the internet. I found yours excellent and very informative. I would have spent hours to find the "tricks" that have been given in this video. It incited me in to buying the previous video which i also found excellent.

The only drawback was the time needed to download and i have a rapid internet connection and ... 2-3 hours .... this is slow.
