Interview with photographer Blake Rubin

There are few individuals who have been able to capture life behind the lens of a camera as Blake Rubin has. This incredible woman has accomplished an incredible amount of achievements in such a short amount of time on this earth. This multi-talented photographer and sometimes filmmaker has generated a fanbase that supports her incredible work. However, all great things have humble beginnings. Blake did not inherently know the importance of camera work from a young age. She used it as a tool to explore the world around her whenever she was little.

Blake Rubin was born in Philadelphia to a middle-class family. Though her family life was generally good, she wanted to explore the world more. However, Blake had social anxieties as a child and found it difficult to speak to other people. Her life would change whenever she discovered the power of photography. She had a revelation whenever she was in middle school during a photography class. She could see the world differently through the lens of her camera. This allowed her to study people and find out more about their personalities more effectively than having a conversation would ever allow. Blake knew that this was her calling in life and would spend her twenties developing her skill.

Blake now works with clients all around the world and creates stunning masterpieces that truly capture the human essence. She is currently preparing for another large project and shows no signs of losing momentum in her career. She is truly an inspiration to all aspiring photographers around the world.


How did you get started in the photography industry?

I had always wanted to see the world in some capacity whenever I was little. However, I did not get a chance to travel very often. Though my family was financially secure, we did not have the means to go on many vacations. I was also incredibly socially awkward. I did not have the social skills to properly talk to the other kids at school. Photography for me was a way to express myself. I loved photography so much that I would end up entering the industry full-time after I graduated from college.

What has been the biggest accomplishment in your career?

Most people equate money as a means of measuring success. However, my biggest accomplishment comes from a different place. I had created a personal photography project for an elderly woman who wanted a collage of her and her husband. He would pass away shortly after the project. It was a very emotional project to work on. However, the elderly woman was very pleased with the collage. She said that it kept her going most days after her husband had passed away. I felt like I accomplished something bigger than anything I had done before. It was truly a bittersweet experience.

Is photography your biggest passion?

It absolutely is. I feel as if I can help other people see the world through a different perspective every time I create a new project. It has been a very enlightening experience.

What motivates you?

I have always wanted to help other people. However, I wanted to do it utilizing my passions. I have been told by many clients that my work has truly made them happy. This motivates me to work harder and continuously create better work as I progress through the industry.

How do you stay ahead of the competition?

I am constantly learning new tricks on YouTube and e-courses that anyone can sign up to. The secret is to keep yourself in a student-like mentality. You will constantly be learning new things and finding ways to improve your craft. Failure to do so can make you stagnant.

Which business leaders, past or present, have inspired you the most?

Steve Jobs has always been a big inspiration to me. He always wanted to try new things that would innovate the market. I use Apple products frequently and they have never failed me. I try to emulate his thought process and think outside the box as often as I can.


What is the next step for you?

I am beginning to dabble in film work at the moment. I want to learn all the aspects of storytelling in that medium and deliver incredible stories. However, I think I have ways to go before I can do that.


What are some of your favorite tools and resources for your work?

I use Photoshop for everything. I highly recommend that all photographers who are serious about their craft sign up for Adobe's Creative Suite.


Photography can be taxing, how do you relax?

A nice glass of wine and a few hours watching Netflix always helps me wind down after a long day.

What advice do you have for others who want to enter your sector?

Keep working hard and constantly learn from your mistakes. You will make it into the industry eventually and thank yourself for your efforts.
