the online portfolio for photographer Colleen D. Gjefle

Philadelphia Jewelry & Commercial Photography

JEWELRY: I specialize in the challenging field of jewelry photography. I often use interesting backgrounds and props (including live models) to stage what I’m shooting, but I’m also adept at creating fully retouched jewelry & product photos on a pure white or rich black background. Get New York quality jewelry photography at a Philadelphia price. I have both liability and jewelry insurance, and a discreet studio to help protect your property while its in my possession.

OTHER PRODUCTS: include drinks, glassware, architecture, hand-made art items, etc. As an adjunct to photography, I also provide website & graphic design services.

PEOPLE: Commercial portrait work includes fashion, modeling / acting portfolios and headshots, and corporate / business headshots. I also do artistic personal / retail portrait photography.

PETS: I’m a huge animal lover and am comfortable around several different species of critters, with an appreciation for each pet’s unique nature. I’m a volunteer photographer at the SPCA in Philadelphia, where I try to show that each animal is wonderful and special.
