Among the many interesting products I get to photograph are these gorgeous hand-tooled leather handbags from AdamAlexis.  Imported from Mexico, they are a continuation of the fine craftsmanship established in that country going back hundreds of years with carved leather saddles.  Unlike the more common stamped products that can be mass produced cheaply and sold as if the products were comparable or even similar, each of these is hand-cut by masters in leather carving, preserving the art and a centuries old way of life worth validating, still, today. 

I want to be sure to mention our wonderful models, Erika, Rhiannon, and Sasha.  They did excellent work in presenting the many different looks available.  Rhiannon and Sasha can be reached through Deanna Hemus at DivineLive on Facebook.

Take a look and enjoy.

Gotta love an opportunity to hear the Beach Boys live, even if it’s just the sound check.  Those guys are the soundtrack of my youth, especially summers spent poolside with nascent romances in Mt Lebanon, PA., as a junior high student and later, in high school, in New Wilmington, PA.  Surprise, surprise, the Boys sounded GREAT, just like I remembered.  Can’t always say that anymore about some other of my musical heroes from the same period.

When an assignment from the amazing Arcadian Productions DC creates such an opportunity, how cool is that?

Certainly the entire point of my being there is to document the production values Arcadian brings to the event, like lighting platforms, balcony mounted control stations, enormous LED video screens.  As you can see, they do a fabulous job!

These, plus their other services with light and sound, make them a premier client and a premier provider of event staging.  Good people to deal with, too.

This past Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017, I received a text from my friend, Mary Kate Battles, congratulating me on winning a Golden ADDY.

I believe my exact words were “Wait!  What????   Whattt??? You wouldn’t kid a fella would you?”

A Gold ADDY!!!???

I had no idea until that moment that the photos we’d created for The Tasting Room with the superb assistance of Sam Levitan and Jessica Patterson had even been entered in anything, let alone the ADDY Awards for the Greater Frederick area.  Yes, I was proud of the photos; I like them a lot, and they were published on my website shortly after The Tasting Room’s new website went live.  But this outcome was never, ever, on my radar.

So…many thanks to Jamie and Jon at Wood Street and to Mike and Lori at The Tasting Room for selecting Jeff Behm Photography in the first place. Thank you too, to Wood Street for acknowledging the photography in their submission, which carried over to being acknowledged at the ceremony.  Not everyone would have done that.

Many thanks to Sam and Jessica for their excellent help and knowledge at all times, not just The Tasting Room session.

Thanks to Mary Kate for alerting me to this fantastic, fun turn of events.

And thanks to The Tasting Room for their remarkable food and beautiful restaurant, here in the heart of Frederick, the Dining Destination Capital of Maryland!!!

“So, what is a Gold ADDY?” one might ask.

“The American Advertising Awards, or ADDY Awards, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year in local American Advertising Federation Club (Ad Club) competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

A GOLD ADDY is recognition of the highest level of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category.”

During the early January crush this year, one client, Arcadian Productions DC was very busy, which we at Jeff Behm Photography really appreciated for a couple of reasons.  1) we enjoy the crew at Arcadian, 2) they ask us to photograph interesting buildings and events, 3) we sometimes get to hear top musicians.

This event included Alabama as the entertainment, and a lavish set-up at the Mellon Auditorium, in Washington DC. How cool is that?  VERY cool!

Of course, more important than what I find especially fun or out of the ordinary is our ability to demonstrate what the client wants to show to prospective clients.  Thus we photograph sound and light platform installations, enormous video screens and all the lights, sound and tech that Arcadian can bring to bear, plus the people to make it all work.

At Jeff Behm Photography, we’re professionals with vast experience in meeting the needs of clients across North America.  Quality, timeliness, professionalism, talented photographers and staff plus clear communications are part of every thing we bring to your project.  Call 724-730-8513 or email jeff@jeffbehm.com to get your photography needs met.

While I haven’t completely caught up with all the  photos there are to write about, to me it seemed that the blog content was getting a bit similar, and needed a some shaking up.

As a result, I found myself revisiting an image from a model session and re-imagining its presentation a bit.  Jacy was a dream to work with and a real trooper, standing or lying in a spring fed stream for a pretty long session, despite it being about 54 degrees cool on this October day.  Models with a good attitude make a huge difference, and Jacy had an excellent attitude.  She’s also a stunning beauty.

When I asked her for a look that might reflect how she felt about being in that cold for so long, Jacy found this.  I think it does quite nicely…especially since her usual smile was what was on her face until she was asked for this.

 

We are professional photographers, located in Frederick, MD and traveling as clients direct, whether that’s Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, the greater US, Canada or Europe.  Call Jeff Behm Photography at 724-730-8513 or email jeff@jeffbehm.com
