Blake Bokosky is a landscape and fine art photographer based in Newport Beach, California. Blake has long had an appreciation for the arts and developed an eye for photography at a young age when he took his first photography class and received exceptional marks for creativity, framing, film developing and technical mastery. Over the next several years, Blake’s passion for photography grew as he explored the world through the lens of his father’s Canon AE-1 35mm film camera. Blake has since transitioned to a full-frame DSLR and has found his niche in landscapes, cityscapes, fine art and the occasional portrait work. The visual drama and originality of his photographs are created through a keen eye for the many moods of nature and a life-long love of the outdoors; a passion that shines throughout Blake’s work.
Born and raised in Orange County, California, Blake is the youngest of three children. He attended the University of California, Irvine, and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, a background that has allowed him to apply historical insights as he travels the world in search of compelling imagery. Working professionally in commercial real estate, Blake turns to photography to remind himself of the beauty that exists in our everyday surroundings. Blake travels the world—camera in hand—and is inspired by discovering new locations to capture unique visual experiences through varying mediums of light and movement. Whether it’s the sunsets in his hometown of Orange County, the canals of Venice, Italy, or the skyscrapers of New York City, he does whatever it takes to find a distinctive angle and get the perfect shot. His photography focuses on capturing unique moments in time, each a work of art conveying natural beauty, character and a piece of history.
In late 2018, Blake partnered with a professional landscape photographer and opened an art gallery and studio in Newport Beach, California—Studio b. Gallery. Blake is looking forward to providing clients unique visuals through his work and future travels.
