the online portfolio for photographer Colleen D. Gjefle
PRODUCTS: my main focus is on the especially challenging field of jewelry photography – shooting often tiny, highly reflective metal items that may include transparent stones. I enjoy using interesting backgrounds and props (including live models) to stage what I’m shooting, but I’m also adept at creating the highly desired look of fully retouched jewelry & products on a pure white or rich black background.
Other products include glassware, architecture, hand-made art items, etc. As an adjunct to photography, I also provide website & graphic design services.
PEOPLE: fashion photography, modeling/acting portfolios and headshots for models, actors and corporate business purposes. Personal (non-business) portrait photography, including boudoir, is now located at BWBeautyPhoto.com.
PETS: this should be self explanatory! I’m a huge animal lover and am comfortable around several different species of critters and have appreciation for each pet’s unique nature.
