Peter Boyd Photography 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!)

Enjoy...

Kate & Simon’s Cave Castle Engagement Shoot

At least that was the plan.

As always, Kelly and I turned up early to speak to the venue staff and do a bit of recon ourselves. The sky had looked threatening for most of our drive over, but (to our relief) the rain stayed at bay when we arrived. So, our initial tasks completed, we sat and prepared for Kate and Simon to arrive…

As soon as Kate and Simon arrived the heavens opened. Fortunately, we have an ample supply of white umbrellas – we are British photographers after all!

The ducks showed no fear as I was crouched on the grass. I’m not sure I felt entirely safe…

This shot gives you some idea of the conditions we were working with…

In this shot I’d accidentally caught the flash in the background. I rather like the ‘flare’ effect it produces.
It also makes the weather look less dismal than it really was!

Despite getting a bit soggy we had a lovely time with Kate & Simon and can’t wait for their wedding in July.
