About me
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain

***************** Blog Last Updated 7/6/2014 ****************

My name is Bill Ballard, and I’m a photographer of the female form.

What I Do

I photograph to create artistic and erotic images of the female form.

What I Don't Do

I don't work with anyone under the age of 18. Ever.

I no longer shoot fashion, glam, swimsuit, weddings, events, or other similar commercial work. Been there, done that, and have way too many T-Shirts. And I don't shoot bondage/S&M, domination, horror/gore, portrayals of violence or pain, or similar fetishes. Not my cup o' tea.

I don't trade comments for the sake of trading comments.

I don't work with male models.

I don't hire or use retouching services.


The Fine Points

Proof of age documents, (you must be 18 years old or older!), model releases, and other necessary record keeping paperwork is required from every model.

Prospective models should be in overall good physical condition, attractive, open-minded, and agreeable to participating in the creation of beautiful imagery. Ethnicity, hair color/length, height, etc. are not important, though certain projects may determine a need for a specific look.

I will provide references if you ask for them.

I welcome models to bring their own ideas and concepts to the session.


What's In it For You?

UPDATE - 7/25/2014
I normally pay tiered industry standard rates for nude figure, erotic nude, and erotic fetish modeling. However, due to an unfortunate series of events, I am not able to pay models at this time. I apologize for this. Trust me when I tell you, I'd much prefer to see that you're paid for your work.

Basically, it's either offer trade or don't shoot. I choose to shoot. For your work as a model, you will receive the following:

A copy of the session, complete, with shared full copyrights in place. Please bring a thumb-drive with you, with at least 64GB of free space, so that you may leave with your images.

Up to five (5) edited images, print, digital, or a combination, of your choosing to be delivered to you.

I am also open to discussing your trade terms, or a trade/pay combination arrangement.

For nude figure and erotic nude modeling, full nudity is required. For erotic fetish modeling, full or even partial nudity may not always be necessary, depending on the needs of the project, but erotic posing is required.

Paid or trade, there is never a presumed expectation from any model for explicit posing or posing for fetish themes. We will discuss the level to which you agree to work, and stay within those limits unless you agree to revise them.

Artistic nude sessions typically average between 3 and 4 hours of shooting time. Erotic and erotic fetish sessions tend to average longer shoot times.


If you've read this far, you're obviously interested...and you have my thanks for taking the time to visit my profile and to view my work. For any questions not answered here, please feel free to get in touch and ask!

Model or photographer; we're all co-creators of art. Let's create something beautiful together!

The summer months are my busy season in the day-job. Please understand my time for sessions can be limited from June-October. I'm able to shoot of course, it just takes a bit more advance planning.

I don't often change the images here. To see my most current work, please visit my website/blog at the link listed at the top of the page. Or, click here: http://www.billballardphotography.com

I hope to hear from you soon.
