Picture this: an intricate array of tightly woven filaments, each strand hand-strung with dozens of tiny, silver beads.
This exotic piece of jewelry—an arachnid masterpiece, in fact—is just one of the many detail-oriented scenes that Chris Berryman has captured with his camera. The necklace and other intriguing points of view, including mountain and maritime scenes, and focusing on local and South Sound scenes and subjects, are available as cards and prints at the Bair Bistro.
Because of Chris’s fascination with detail, he says, he’s always wanted to share that perspective. The photo enterprise is his latest creative outlet. His new business, he adds, began about three months ago, after he spoke with Proprietor Sarah Cannon. Chris’s photos, along with those of photographer Kerrie Ellsworth, are available for purchase.
Berryman, a general contractor, developed the photography sideline as an extension of his many outdoor-oriented activities. His work, he says, emphasizes a way of looking at objects that is “all too often overlooked.”
He and Ellsworth teach Backcountry Photography—a combination climbing/photography class—through the community College’s Continuing Education Program. He credits local artist Brent Cobb, Ellsworth, Cannon, and his wife, Tracy Berryman, for encouraging his efforts.
