About Me


Most of you know (some might not...) that my wife and I are sailors, and have lived on board our sailboat full time for a few years. The time has come to shift to a new phase of our lives. We have a few things to wrap up around our home base of Savannah, GA, and then...we're slipping the dock lines and sailing away.

For how long? Who can say? It's been one interesting ride so far. Don't let life pass you by! Get yourself out there and see what may be over your horizon!!


“Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it.”
- Mark Twain


I'm Bill Ballard, a photographer working from Savannah & Brunswick, GA. My photography is - or WAS - centered around the creation of artistic, erotic, and sensual imagery of the nude female form.

My work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is held in many private and public collections. For over 35 years, I've worked in photography, with nearly 15 of those years shooting nude work exclusively.

As indicated above, my time working with models is at an end. With the move to a sailing life, my work will return to its roots - travel and nature photography. My portfolio will stay here for a little bit longer. It's been an interesting ride here on Model Mayhem for the last 10+ years!

I wish all of you every success you desire! Chase your dreams!
