Over the years I have photographed every type of jewel and precious metal imaginable so when we were approached by a Warwickshire based local designer and manufacturer of high quality architectural hardware to do their photography. I thought nothing of the challenge we faced, I now know photographing chrome is probably the most difficult type of product photography going.
I have photographed a lot of hand worked silver jewellery which can be tricky, but that is nothing in comparison to photographing chrome. It is basically like taking photographs of a three dimensional mirror. However, I have always liked a challenge and I am not known for giving up easily. It has taken a lot of patience but I am now producing work that my client and I are happy with.
