One of the most exciting photographers on the rise in an intensely competitive industry, Blake Ballard has had a crucial hand in developing many of the most sought after talent in the modeling arena. With a diverse portfolio and multiple magazine covers behind him, Blake always pushes the envelope creatively and consistently produces engaging images in collaboration with top agencies and talent.  A former model himself, Blake is adept at providing constructive direction to models to help them excel not only in front of his camera, but in future endeavors as well. He provides insight, and instills confidence to help talent grow and flourish in front of the lens

Blake was the first photographer that I shot with when I joined GTM. I was very nervous to do my first shoot but luckily I was paired with Blake. He instantly got me out of my shell and made me feel so natural. He is absolutely fantastic when it comes to making a model feel comfortable. He is easily one of the most easy going people I’ve ever met. However, don’t let the fun loving guy distract from how great his work is. He is so detailed and meticulous and it really shows. He is such a stand up guy and never disappoints. I always walk away from Blake happy and also with some amazing shots.

I’ve had the pleasure to shoot with Blake three times. Blake was actually one of the first photographers I’d ever shot with. His direction from the start has been so beneficial toward my career, and I’ve used so many of his tips to better myself as a model. The chemistry between him and the model creates a feeling of friendship and comfortability that every model and photographer should have.
