About Me



My portfolios here are all new! Please come in and have a look-see!

If you're interested in working together, please PM and let me know. My wife and I live aboard and sail our sailboat on the US East Coast, and my location changes frequently. I'm currently in Hilton Head Island, SC.

Middle November - January, 2022

I will be in the Hilton Head Island, SC, area from mid-November through January, 2022. Local models, please feel free to reach out and let's schedule something!

I get a surprising number of 'Love Your Work - Let's Shoot!' requests from models who don't do nude and erotic work. While I appreciate the interest, nude and erotic work is the work I do, and the work I'm known for doing. If you don't work in these genres, then we likely won't be working together.

ATTENTION RETOUCHERS: I respect the work you do. However, I do not need your services, I do not want your services, and I will not hire your services, nor will I accept your friend requests. Please do not contact me.

My name is Bill Ballard. I’m a photographer living and sailing the US East Coast. I will be in the area of Hilton Head Island, SC from middle November through January, 2022.

My work is centered on the creation of sensual, beautiful, and artistic erotic photographic imagery. I have over 40 years experience in photography, with over 20 of those years shooting nude and erotic work almost exclusively.

A Little Bit More About Me

I’m a former professional photographer. I’ve been represented by art galleries, and have owned shares in a few art galleries. I’ve been published and interviewed. Now, I shoot for the pure satisfaction of creating beautiful, sensual, and thought provoking photography for myself and a small cadre of collectors of my work.

My work is primarily with female and trans-women/non-binary models, though I occasionally shoot projects with male and couples models. At this time, I'm looking specifically for female and trans-women/non-binary models. Please see my website (link above) for more information.

Currently, my sessions are primarily TFP. The models I work with are co-creators of the work, and as such, are granted a full-share of copyrights and unlimited use of images regardless of compensation. If we decide to work together, all the details of the shoot will be agreed to beforehand.

A Few Things to Know

- You must be at least 18 years of age or older to model for my work – proof of age will be required

- All models must sign a Model Release - I’m a fastidious record keeper – just bear with me

- All models will be asked to complete a 'Model Work Styles Form' which allows you to designate the type of modeling you're interested in doing; artistic nude, erotic nude, non-nude erotic, etc.

- All models will be required to provide model reference images. These images remain in your modeling file and will never be shown publicly. They are purely for reference only.

- References will be provided upon request

- My preference is for a natural body with no or minimal tattoos, piercings, enhanced breasts, or similar modifications. That said, I can certainly can and have worked with models having body art. Scars, stretch marks, moles, freckles, etc., are absolutely fine.

- The work you see in my portfolio is representative of what I shoot. Please do not expect for me to change my shooting style for “us to have the opportunity to work together.” I wouldn’t ask for you to do such a thing.


Feel free to contact me with any questions, etc., and if you're interested in working together, then let's talk!

Stay safe, stay healthy!!
