Chu, who is always ahead of the curve, is the brain behind the revolutionary GemLightbox and all its succeeding upgrades such as the turntable, Aerial, and Eclipse. With more product developments yet to come, Chu continues to uphold his mission of changing the game for jewelry photography by simplifying what has always been an arduous process of taking studio-quality photos and videos — from grand studio setups to smartphone-operated, one-click jewelry photography solution.
“Our desired outcome has always been to deliver user-friendly, as well as simple yet functional solutions that would enable jewelers to run a successful business whether offline, online, or a mix of both.”— William Chu, Founder of Picup Media
