Beyond the headshot-- meet Hsaing-Ting Yen- jewelry designer
Hsaing-Ting and I are in a business group that meets weekly and at every meeting, she shows a photograph of a piece of custom jewelry that she has finished. Week after week, I have been impressed at the quality and variety of the pieces that she creates. So when Hsaing-Ting wanted to update her headshot, I suggested that we shoot on location at her home office and workshop to create a collection of portraits that would illustrate the depth of her artistry. Hsaing-Ting is a true artist and artisan in that she not only creates designs on the computer, but also fabricates them in her workshop.
In the first images, we created a classic, modern portrait showcasing Hsiang-Ting's beautiful smile, engaging laugh, and her signature jewelry. Next we moved to the office, her inspiration wall in the background, with the computer where she begins her designs.
Then to her workshop, surrounded by the tools where she fabricates her designs. From fine saws to blow torches, she works magic bringing her designs to life.
