Client Testimonials


“Blake is one of those few individuals who possesses the photographic ‘eye’ – being his own toughest critic, he creates some of the best photographs around, editing himself as he shoots, working diligently to find the most imaginative and compelling image possible. Not only is Blake a great photographer, he has a tremendously genuine personality and is always easy to get along with.”

Joey Trotz- Senior Director, Strategic Advertising Technology at Turner Broadcasting; former Photography Editor, The Augusta Chronicle

“Blake is a talented photographer with an eye for capturing the moment. His background in photojournalism enables him to produce highly effective results in a timely manner. He is extremely dependable and is determined to document each assignment from the most creative angles imaginable. I highly recommend Blake for all styles of photography, especially high quality action photos, scenics, and portraits. His photos are always true to life and his vision is uniquely inspiring.”

Bob Williams- Director of Communications at Asheville School

“I art directed a few photo shoots with Blake at a health care facility in Western NC. Blake was professional, patient, and captured some flattering portraits of health care practitioners – this after other photographers had been unsuccessful. The resulting images were a quantum leap in quality from the images I had been using and were invaluable for upgrading the facility’s promotional materials.”

David Lynch- President, Lynch Graphics, Inc.

“Blake Madden has been a great pleasure to work with, he’s a very talented photographer who has always gotten the results I needed. Never a need to re-shoot! I would highly recommend Blake for your next project, you won’t be disappointed.”

Kay Stafford- Freelance Graphic Design & Production at Stafford Arts; former Creative Specialist at Mission Hospital

“Blake and I met through an association of creative professionals several years ago and I have long admired his work, particularly because of his photojournalism background. He aims to tell a story with his photography, so the result is much more than a ‘pretty picture.’ In addition, I appreciate his kind and thoughtful demeanor.”

“I hired Blake to shoot photography for my magazine. Not only did he deliver high-quality shots, but he was extraordinarily easy to work with. Photographers like him make my job very easy.”

Martha Smith- Graphic Designer/Owner at Martha Smith Design; former Director of Publications at UNC Asheville

“Blake Madden is an incredibly fine photographer with background in all types of work. He is a thoughtful and highly intelligent person who says what he means and will complete any project with great authority and honesty. One example of this is his circumnavigation of the Annapurna Massif in Nepal, trekking the whole way, and taking some of the most amazing photographs, ones that are absolutely world-class. I have the highest regard for Blake, what he does and who he is.”
