The goal of my work is to convey emotions evoked by gemstones, jewelry and art objects. My experience in photography is about 20 years, the first half of which I was in magazine photography. For the past ten years, I have been doing what I call "Jewelry Portraits", i.e., shoots with special attention to the gems cut and jewelry texture.

Whilst using the most up-to-date digital equipment, I retains a firm belief in applying this technology only to enhance the image, leaving as much as possible to be created ‘in camera’.


Sincerely, Evgeny Laptev.
