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!)

For her first dance Lisa asked if she could visit our house as a kind of trial run. I was more than happy to oblige, so we set it up. Below are a small handfull of my faves…

Although I like the colours in these shots, the cushion stacking is a little bit ‘Blair Witch’…

It was fascinating to watch Lisa’s reactions to the stuff around me that I now take for granted. It’ll be interesting to see if we have similar interpretations when we visit a house that I don’t know either. Watch this space for further posts…
