If I had a jewellery business and wanted to upgrade my content for the best price and quality ratio… without hiring an expensive jewellery photographer, how would I do it?
Plan and pre-meditate 15 layered jewellery looks you’d like to have photographed - $0
Find a freelance professional model that would agree to work for $100 per hour and book her for 3 hours.
Book a makeup artist - find the best-rated beauty salon the model can go to prior to the shoot (check their profile prior to sealing the deal) - this should cost approx. $70, depending on where you’re based.
Ask the model to get a fresh manicure done prior to the shoot - $30
Find a jewellery photoshoot location- you can find a free location for your shoot in nature or in town, provided you scout it prior to your session - $0
Sort out the wardrobe - you can either make an order on high-street / ASOS and return everything afterwards to get a full refund or collaborate with local designers and boutiques - $0
Find 2 friends who agree to assist you for the day. Have one friend to hold the foamboards/reflectors, and another one to keep an eye out on the details: clothes, hair, jewellery, etc.
