According to Gregory Boyd, a portrait is a record of an exchange of energy and emotions between the photographer and the subject. Bright, positive, and colorful, his photographs document the special moment that he and his subjects have shared, a moment that cannot be repeated. Gregory’s photographic style is worldly and wise, energetic and upbeat. His work is a dynamic fusion of real people portraiture and a hyperreal style that makes his subjects appear close, intimate, and full of life.
Gregory brings together old and new technologies in photographs that use both natural and artificial lighting in different combinations to create dazzling images that make an impact. Be it a major production outside on location, or a quiet portrait in the studio, Gregory handles it with finesse, resourcefulness, and innovation.
From a full-length portrait in a sweeping landscape, to a detail of the catchlight in a subject’s eye, Gregory photographs a diverse range of people in a unified, cohesive style. His subjects include musicians, actors, and models, but everyone is a potential subject. Closely in tune with both the person he’s photographing and the location in which he’s doing it, Gregory doesn’t miss a beat. He captures every nuance from the ambience of the environment down to the subtleties of facial expressions.
Gregory has a degree in Applied Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He lived and worked in New York City for eight years before moving to Beijing in the final weeks of 2009 where he continues to pursue his photographic vision and expand his client base. Gregory's international experience, his personal competencies– tenacity, persistence, and cultural literacy, as well as his unique photographic vision make him in great demand.
