Introduction

“Le vrai bonheur est d’avoir sa passion pour métier” – Alain Silberstein

As watchmaker Alain Silberstein so succinctly described, to have one’s passion as one’s profession is the route to true happiness. Watches and photography have been my passions for as long as I can remember, and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to combine the two as my profession.

Representing works of art, with works of art

Watches are created in the space where art, design, science and engineering overlap. My approach to photographing timepieces is founded on mastering and applying skill-sets from those same four disciplines, with the ultimate deliverable being a 160cm by 120cm fine art print.

Detail

Each image is created with an extraordinary level of detail that is impossible to fully convey online. Scroll down to get just a sense of the detail that exists in the above image.

Showcasing the extraordinary

When hundreds or even thousands of hours of work lies behind the creation of a single watch, it can only truly be appreciated by viewing it at the utmost level of detail – the same level of detail that the watchmaker worked at, but on a much larger scale.

Commissioning

Whether you are a brand requiring the ultimate in watch photography for the launch of a new timepiece, a retailer looking to promote specific timepieces for a special event, or a collector interested in acquiring unique artwork to accompany your collection, I look forward to working with you.
