Gem Bazaar is a jewellery business which is based in the UK but all of its stunning products are sourced from India, full of colour and intricate designs, what better way to set them off then with a pair of models and some high end fashion clothing...
Gem Bazaar is an exciting new jewellery concept, conceived to bring our gorgeous gemstone jewellery to a wider audience. Gem Bazaar use a huge variety of semi precious stones, some well known like Amethyst, Aquamarine and Moonstone; while others are less so like Apatite, Druzy and Labradorite. These days, all gemstones are considered precious, since they are all rare and there is a limited supply of them.

Sourced from India and now being sold in the UK the fashion shoot was in collaboration with Antoine et lili, the French boutique ladies fashion store in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter Canterbury and it’s stylish clothing with bright and wonderful designs was a perfect pairing with the jewellery designs.

I used models Elisabeth and Siobhan for the fashion shoot, we were on a timeline so for ease of use I had the Profoto A1 set on the hot show of the Nikon D4S with the 24-70mm lens for the duration, using the oval diffuser on the light sodfteend the overall flash and with TTL metering each exposure came out perfectly, the high speed sync also allowed for some shallow depth of field.
