I would love to have a photographer with this much experience taking photos of some of my antique silver jewellery. Not just to put them up on the website for sale, but for cataloging purposes. Some of the pieces that I have in store waiting for the right person to snap them up are truly one of a kind and are worth a few pictures for me to remember them by!
