Boyd's Bio

Boyd’s Bio

I am a freelance photographer based in Northamptonshire who works throughout the UK on a number of projects; fashion, advertising, beauty, lifestyle and music and I always enjoy a good wedding; there are always people.

I come from a classical music background having worked with the major London Symphony Orchestras and The Royal Opera House Covent Garden. It was during my time at Covent Garden that my interest in photography developed, what else do you do during a Wagner Opera when you are the triangle player?

My goal as a photographer is really quite simple and that is to communicate with the subject, the client and of course the viewer. I have photographic techniques which I use to do so but it is my people skills that are equally important “people buy work they like from people they like”

I am a keen rugby and country sports fan and I combine these interests with my photography day job. My advertising and corporate clients are always interested in my lifestyle approach to their assignments and my fashion clients are equally interested in the diverse locations that I find.

I won the Jaguar Arts Prize in 2003 for my Rugby Portfolio, a series of images that documents the fun, which the fans enjoy when supporting a great Rugby Club like the Northampton Saints.I was a finalist in the Halsselblad Masters 08 for my Bikers Wedding Portfolio and my Musicians images are featured by IMG artists.

I shoot company directors, model portfolios, kids, celebrities, and sports fans – and do you know, it’s easy! All you have to do is make them feel special and see what is special in them.
