Portraits with Personality
As a photographer, my passion is to create unique and appealing images that reveal your personality. I’m inspired to capture something uplifting about the human spirit in all of us – and to make the viewer smile. Bold colors and simple compositions are often a part of my vision.
Meeting and photographing people of all ages is a great blessing for me, as well as terrific fun. I’ll make the shoot comfortable and fun for you as well, which is one of the keys of a successful portrait.
Publications and Awards
My photographs have been published in USA Today, New Canaan – Darien Magazine, The Stamford Advocate, The Darien Times, and other publications. In the professionally-judged Darien Arts Center Show, my work has been awarded prizes for six years in a row in the color photography category.
Before becoming a professional photographer, I had a completely different career. I worked in the investment management field for 30 years, most of that time as a partner of an investment counsel firm in Greenwich, CT. Then something called me to switch gears.
For the past eight years, I’ve been pursuing my passion for photography. In addition to studying photography at The Silvermine School of Art, I have attended photography workshops around the country and also received private instruction from seasoned photographers whose work I admire. But mostly I’m self-taught. In early 2008, I opened my studio in Norwalk, principally to do portrait work. I’ve been shooting like mad, the best way to learn and grow as a craftsman and as an artist.
Newsletter and Blog
Six to eight times a year, I write a newsletter – which includes some of my current work but also links to anything about photography that may interest my readers as well as tips that might help you with your own pictures. If you’d like to be on the mailing list, just send me a note at email@example.com. Also, I write regular posts to my blog.

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
