Blake’s photography has been shaped over the years by a very active lifestyle. After operating a successful practice in Toronto, the decision was made to relocate to Calgary to be close to the mountains. A Master of Fine Art degree at the University of Calgary precipitated the move. Upon completion of an MFA, Blake was awarded Calgary’s top emerging photographer and has since gained representation at galleries across Canada. Blake has been fuelled by the landscape, outdoor life, and sports as the subject matter of his work; and in addition has done an abundance of portraiture. As a high level, multi-sport athlete himself, Blake brings a unique perspective and set of skills to the table.
Blake currently teaches Photoshop and introductory photography with CPLC and has worked as an instructor at the University of Calgary teaching photography.
