jewelry photo training: the first of its kind - via download

This is a jewelry photography training course for those who don't have the time or desire to become a jewelry photography expert.  These sessions are for those who are building a website, or managing their social media account, and need to learn how to take better photos that will sell products.

Inside "The Whole Picture: Jewelry Photography Training" (v2.1) you'll find more than 7 hours of video training split across 13 chapters and 50 segments.  That might sound overwhelming, but it was created to help you improve your skills and reduce the overall costs involved with jewelry photography.

Every video offers bites of photography theory and practical examples on how to think through and navigate the difficulties of jewelry photography.  Unlike other photography training classes that present solutions to specific scenarios, we chose to show you how to identify and solve the problems that are encountered every day by jewelers and jewelry designers all over the world. 

This course features training using a Canon DSLR camera and an iPhone. It doesn't matter if you are taking photos with your smartphone or with your DSLR camera; you should have a basic understanding of lighting temperature, aperture, ISO, and lenses that this course will teach you. Even though the information we provide references Canon cameras and iPhones, the information imparted is the basic knowledge that every amateur photographer should learn.

This will be the single best investment into your website and social media marketing.

Other photography classes are brief and show you how to take photos in an ideal studio that is usually too big for your own space.  We are showing you how to take photos that will work within your space and in your real life.

Learning Photography is More Than a 1,2,3 Step process

Photography is an art, not a science, yet other photography classes are presented with ideas, studio setups, and perfectly rehearsed scripts that make photography seem easy.  In our course, you'll see an honest, unscripted presentation of jewelry photography problem solving.  

By the end of the course, you'll understand how to identify common photography issues on your own, and you'll know how to solve them by yourself, which is something you won't learn in any other jewelry photography course.

Your guide through all of this info is the friendly faced, learned, and experienced photographer and website marketing professional.  While he has decades of internet experience, he has maintained a laser focus on the trends, mistakes, and frustrating elements that mar the jewelry industry, the biggest being photography that doesn't sell.  

As a journalist, speaker, and business owner, he has made it a mission to teach jewelry professionals how to photograph their products the best and most effective ways.  You can often catch Matthew teaching parts of this photography class at MJSA Expos, MJSA Confabs, AGTA Shows, at NYC Business Expos, and his photography tips have been published in the MJSA Journal.

Other photography courses show you how to take photos of 1 item in 1 setting.  We've chosen to show you how to take photos of the same 7 items in different lighting studios so you can learn exactly how to problem solve through the staging and shooting process.

Unlike other photography courses that choose the right item to present in the right shooting environments, we show you the common problems you'll encounter when shooting in less and ideal lighting.  

This is how you learn to problem solve on your own and eventually achieve pride in your jewelry photos.

What camera do I need for this course?

The course teaches smartphone and DSLR photography.  It's okay if you don't have a camera yet; in fact, chapters 1 through 7 teach you all about photography basics without you ever needing to pick up a camera.  We do recommend Canon cameras and you'll find out why in Chapter 6.

I'm brand new to jewelry photography; can this course really help me?

The techniques presented in this course are in-depth and presented in a friendly, easy to understand way.  The lessons have already been presented to hundreds of jewelers throughout the USA and fine tuned for this course to answer all the questions commonly asked during a live class.  Watch each section at your own pace, and watch them again for a refresher whenever needed.

I've already figured out how to take jewelry photos; will I learn anything new?

Photographers with years of experience and even those who majored in photography in college have all walked away with something new and feeling like they had a full refresher course.  Matthew Perosi's way of teaching photography is unique and down to earth so even the hardest concepts can be remembered.

Is there a time limit for taking the course?

Unlike other jewelry photography training, this entire jewelry photography course is not presented as a webinar or a membership website.  Once you purchase the course you will receive a link to download the course to your computer.  From there you'll be able to watch it at your own pace again and again.

The techniques presented in this course will be good for many years to come, which means this one-time purchase is probably the only one of it's kind you'll need in your career.

What photography equipment will I need?

This course will present several different types of photography studios.  After watching the first few videos you'll be able to choose the type of studio setup that works best for your space; although you really should wait until you get to Chapter 12 before investing into anything.  

The flash photography technique presented in Chapter 12 will surprise most novice and experienced photographers.

  12. This chapter of the course is unique to our training, and we've saved the best for last.  We'll explain the concept of flash photography and why it fixes the light intensity issues and depth-of-field issues explained in the early chapters.  After you learn how to use flash photography for jewelry you'll never want to use any other method with your DSLR camera.
