My name is Bill Ballard and I am a former professional photographer working from Savannah, GA.

My images have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are a part of many collections. I've worked in photography for 35 years, with nearly 18 of those years shooting artistic/erotic work exclusively.

I strive to keep my photography process simple and efficient. A camera is a tool. The shared vision of photographer and model creates the beauty of my photographs. Because I work with simple cameras and natural light, my approach to photography is often described as 'minimalist.' The majority of my work is monochromatic - black and white - although I do occasionally work in color.

I am always looking for female models. All that is required is an open mind and spirit of adventure. And while prior experience doing nude, erotic, or fetish work is a plus, it is by no means necessary. I work with all body types, from slim and slender to plus-size and curvy. 


Current Work
To create beautifully sensual, artistic and erotic images - that is my goal. Nudity is necessary for the majority of my projects, and some portion of each session will likely include the use of fabric drapes, lingerie, sheer clothing, etc. Other projects may not require total nudity, but will require topless posing, and include the use of sheer clothing, lingerie, and other types or styles of clothing.

Both pay and trade sessions are available. I will provide references upon request. If you prefer or require anonymity, I understand; I am very good at keeping secrets and will be more than happy to discuss anonymity requests on a case-by-case basis.

I strongly prefer to have a short pre-shoot meeting at some public locale; Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, or someplace similar. This allows us to get paperwork completed, iron out shoot details, and so on, giving us more time for photography during the session. And, I'll buy you a coffee or tea.

(Please understand certain projects may require models with specific features and characteristics. Also, please understand that if your profile states you do nude/erotic/fetish work, but you have no nude/erotic/fetish images in your portfolio, I will ask to see samples of said work.)


In a nutshell, here's what you can expect from me:

What I Do:
I only work with female models 18 years of age or older
I create artistic and erotic images
I ALWAYS work within a model's limits and respect those limits
I require a model release from all models
I require model reference images from all models
I maintain records for proof of age for every model as mandated by federal/local law
I offer both paid and trade sessions
I provide references when asked
I shoot the majority of my work with natural light; i.e., I rarely work in a studio setting
I talk to myself during shoots

What I Don't Do:
I don't shoot entire sessions of only 'implied nudes; if 'implied nude' is your limit of nude work, then we won't be a good working fit
I don't work with male models
I don't shoot weddings, birthdays, events, caution tape bikinis, railroad track scenes, etc.
I don't appreciate or tolerate unprofessional behavior at any level from anyone
I don't shoot or submit work for contests, competitions, jury/panel shows, and the like

Want to Bring an Escort? Follow the ABC's:
A. I ask that you let me know ahead of time you will be bringing someone with you to the shoot
B. I ask that your escort is female, 18 years old or older, and able to show proof of age, if asked
C. I expect that your escort will not be a distraction for either of us while we work
