Jeff Behm

The Art of Commercial Photography

About Jeff

Photographer, educator, father, grandfather and would-be musician with 38 years of
professional photography experience around the globe, I’m located in Frederick, MD,
and still traveling to meet client needs.
After years spent as a corporate trouble shooter, I still see myself that way. Now it’s as
a photographic problem solver, specializing in the creation of images that bring
personality to business, connect companies to clients, and display people, products
and services at their best. Always, the ultimate goal is to enhance our clients’
perceived value and/or increase their bottom line.
Our special concentration at Jeff Behm Photography is advertising and commercial
photography, with emphasis on food, jewelry and executive portraiture. Imagery that
exceeds the expectations of our clients – whether local or widely known – is the point
of every assignment.
Among those we proudly serve are: Praxair, Werner Ladders, RoosterBio, Ellume, My
Chicago Steak, Joy Cones, Trinity Inc., Lowe’s Home Improvement, Reliant Electric,
Parker-Hannifin, Berner International Air Doors and others. Plus, publications like TIME,
Cheers, Appalachian, Pittsburgh, DRY Fashion and other magazines.
With western Pennsylvania roots, it’s no surprise that the china and steel industries
figured prominently in my work for years. Now in Frederick, food, jewelry and corporate
portraits have taken over.
