Hello, My name is Helen Boyd, I live and work in the English Lake District with my husband and my Cocker Spaniel, Honey.
Desk-bound on weekdays I love to get outdoors and walk in the Lakes on the weekends and indulge my passions which are Photography, Poetry, Painting, Reading, & Art. Always very observant and naturally curious from a young age, I love to photograph my natural environment. I especially love emotive landscapes, seascapes and simpler minimalist shots. I have been making photographs for many years but have taken my photography more seriously in the last seven years.
I love shooting with my Fujifilm mirrorless X-T1 digital camera.
Recently I have bought a Hasselblad 500 c/m with a Zeiss planar 80mm f2.8 lens which is amazing and a Leica M2 and am enjoying shooting with film again.
Travel is on-going in 2016, Paris, Copenhagen, Seattle & Portland, USA.
My best accolade to date was winning the Northern Counties Photographic Federation NCPF – 2012 for my B&W image of the Borrowdale fells.
