Goldsmith John Boyer poses for a portrait Friday, Dec. 30, 2016, at Boyer Jewelry in Twin Falls. Boyer has owned his store for 25 years. For Boyer, the craft has never been a hobby but a lifelong career and business. 'As soon as I entered this world of gold and diamonds and jewelry...it felt so comfortable,' he says. 'It's where I belong. It's not what I do, it's who I am.' Note: I knew I wanted something like this going into the shoot. If your model is willing to work with you, take the time to make the image. We tried about 20 different poses before I got exactly what I was looking for.
