Meraki Fire Ceramics
Studio Visit & Mentoring Session
Product & Brand Photography
Unique handmade jewellery inspired by the seaside
Sydney ceramicist and jewellery maker Nicole Redenbach of Meraki Fire Ceramics commissioned me to capture her at her home studio, parts of her making process, candid portraits, and the place that inspires her — the seaside.
As part of this session together, we also combined time for photography mentoring where Nic could get to know her own camera better, how to look for ways to tell everyday stories, and to establish a set up where she can style her final jewellery pieces ongoing. Through taking the time to understand the Meraki Fire Ceramics brand direction and knowing Nic wanted to highlight the artisanal quality of her work, we worked together to utilise props and materials she already had around the studio to elevate her jewellery moving forward and ways she can use her own camera to achieve her desired outcome.
After the session, Nic messaged: “Thank you so much for my beautiful photos, I love them!! You managed to capture so many lovely natural shots of me, my process, and my jewellery. I have so many favourites and can’t wait to start sharing them. You’ve reignited my creativity for taking photos and I can’t wait to put it all together. You’ve really told my story so well and I look forward to future shoots down the track.”
