Throwing dirty water on celebrities for the famed "Nobody was Thirsty" campaign is indicative of Blanchard's approach that has seen him win international acclaim.

Artistic statement

I love to tell stories, express emotions and evoke responses through my imagery. At the end of the day I would rather someone passionately dislike my images than feel indifferent towards them. With the advent of HD video in DSLR cameras I have moved into film directing which has in turn benefited my approach to stills. I am now more than ever looking for cinematic storylines in both still and motion projects.

Photography is a love and an ever-changing journey guiding me through life. My philosophy is extremely simple but extremely important: fun. I work extremely hard to ensure I associate photography with enjoyment and in turn this fuels my passion for photography.
