Photography by Balko
WHO IS THIS GUY?
My name is Phil Balko or, simply, “Hey, Balko!” and I photograph people, places and things.
I’m searching for couples, high school seniors, families, children, pets, businesses and others who want a creative individual to help them discover and share their unique and personalized vision of who and where they are, and to provide lasting, significant and tangible memories for them long after those magical moments have passed.
I’m motivated and blessed by the joy of sharing these profound moments with my newly found friends as they watch their vision come to life through my lens.
Based in the heart of the Alleghenies, I often travel across Pennsylvania to reach my clients, and am willing to travel, well, anywhere, to accomplish our creative goals.
I live in the historic Moxham neighborhood of Johnstown, PA with my imaginary cat, Noname, who enjoys reading Proust and binging on Netflix and cheese curls, none of which, except for the cheese curls, appeals to me.
I love this gig!
Each wedding, each portrait session, each assignment is designed and accomplished with the same affection and devotion you share with your loved ones: Photography by Balko
