Peter Boyd Photo Blog bio picture

Hello and welcome

I'm a photographer based in Yorkshire who specialises in wedding,
portrait and headshot photography. I also undertake commercial
commissions, including interior photography, theatre productions and
event coverage.

I am married to Kelly, my long suffering wife, and we live in Huddersfield with our cat, Simon.

I've always had a passion for photography, from watching my grandad
repair old cameras in his spare room to looking through the press
photography of my godfather.

I endeavour to create detailed, stunning and memorable images and my mantra is simple:- there's beauty in everything!

So, sit back with a cuppa and have a browse through my blog. Comments
are always welcome, so don't be shy (Although I will delete anything
that is abusive or makes fun of my hair!)


Actors Headshots – Lucy

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by Lucy to shoot some new headshots, as her existing images were (in acting terms) out of date. Lucy is one of the founding members of the West Yorkshire Theatre Network (WYTN), a group created to bring together all walks of life from the performing arts scene in order to create new connections and collaborations. When she’s not busy pursuing her own acting career Lucy helps organise networking meetings with an informal, friendly atmosphere that have proved very successful.

When I shoot headshots I try to keep things as simple as possible. A couple of pop-up backgrounds for different looks, one flash and simple posing. Also, If I’m shooting during daylight hours I’ll always suggest going outside for a different look again. However, in this case it was 7:30pm on a March evening in Leeds and neither of us fancied wandering around the dark streets with £3k worth of camera gear!

Anyway, I thought I’d share a couple of shots to demonstrate what I do.

UK casting directors/companies still like to see headshots in B&W. However the idea of colour images has started to creep in from our cousins across the pond, so I always offer colour as an option.
