About Bill

Bill Blake is an award-winning photographer who has been shooting professionally for over 20 years.

In 1979, Bill moved to Cheyenne Wyoming and and worked full-time as a print technician and wedding photographer.

About the Studio

Blake's Portrait Studio specializes in portraits of all types: Senior Photos, Family Portraits, Pets, Children, and more. His services can also be reserved for Weddings and special occasions. The studio is setup with the latest in digital cameras, lighting, and editing machines to help produce high-quality and quick proofs and photos.

Over the past several years, Bill has been upgrading his equipment from traditional film-based cameras to fully-digital equipment. This allows him to do digital touch-ups and apply special effects after taking the photos, such as converting to black-and-white or sepia coloring. You are encouraged to come into the studio to view your proofs as they are projected onto a large screen for you. During the viewing, we can make minor changes, if needed, and can help you quickly narrow down all the proofs to just your favorites. Once ordered, your finished pictures are usually available for pickup or delivery within 6-8 weeks.

For more information about the services provided by the studio and the types of photos, albums, and cards that can be purchased, please visit the Services section of our website.
