Products of all sorts have crossed the threshold of Jeff Behm Photography for over 30 years now, and thankfully, continue to do so.
Photography of Pottery – among my favorite subjects
When master potter Tameria Martinez, of Frederick asked me to photograph her work, it became both an honor and continuation of a tradition extending back to the late 1980’s. Back then, in western PA, there was not only pottery art, but numerous clients with established names like Shenango Pottery, Royal Monarch, Woodmere and Steelite, creating fine china that I was pleased to photograph.
Diamonds to Train Cars
Items in an enormous variety sizes and shapes have been in front of my lens for over three decades now, from railroad cars to diamonds. The most interesting to me – beyond the human face – are objet d’art, in which class I place jewelry, fine food – and pottery.
My sister Cathy studied the potter’s art at Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA. It was through her that I was introduced to one of her professors, the late master potter, Kathy Koop, whose work captured my attention as it has thousands of others, and heightened my interest in these works of art, beauty, functionality or whimsy.
It’s a joy to be able to continue to create images important to capturing the efforts of other artists.
And let’s not forget, I said train cars, too.
