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!)

Enjoy...

‘Uprising’ Launch Event – Lawrence Batley Theatre

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Luddite uprising across Yorkshire and surrounding counties. To celebrate, The Lawrence Batley Theatre are holding a number of events and performances throughout the year (under the moniker ‘Uprising’) and have asked me to photograph them. In addition to the theatre productions, there are also various community projects open for any and all to attend. If you’d like to get involved you can find all the details you need at:

(If you’ve no idea what or who a ‘Luddite’ is, click here and all shall be revealed.)

The year’s festivities kicked off with a launch party held at Lawrence Batley theatre. Here’s a few of my favourites…

 


The evening included a few key speakers, like local MP Barry Sheerman






Also taking part were students and lecturers from Huddersfield University.

These young performers were involved with the theatre’s ‘play in a week’ half-term project. They performed a couple of excerpts from the Luddite-themed play they’d put together during the week.






The evening was rounded off with a performance of some traditional folk songs about the Luddites struggles.

I was good to see people getting into the spirit of the event!



 
 

The evening was a great success and I can’t wait to see what year holds in store!
