Brian Boyd grew up in Huntsville Texas and graduated from Sam Houston State University. He and his wife Becky moved to Waco in 1977 where they raised their two sons, Dustin and Lee. He also has five beautiful grandchildren, Price, Sage and Hayes, Solomon and Brighton , who are the apples of his eye. Brian has been a State Farm Insurance agent for 37 years in the greater Waco area. Obviously,his passion is photography. He enjoys taking photos of wildlife, landscapes and people, including the Amish. Over the past years, Brian has been privileged to be able to photograph Air Force One and President Bush during his many visits to Waco.

Brian hopes to be able to continue his travels but also looks forward to his many visits to our parks here at Lake Waco. He takes great pride in Lake Waco’s parks and the wonderful people at the Corps of Engineers who manage them.

People are always asking him what kind of lens and camera he uses. He has been using the canon products for many years now. The optics of his cameras and lens are very sharp and seem to always get him the result he is looking for.

He currently is using the canon 5D Mark 3 series, the 7D mark 2, and the canon 1D Mark 4. He also uses the new canon L series 100-400 lens for most of his shots. Occasionally he will use the canon 25-105 EFv Llens , and the EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II for landscapes and wider shots.

Like any other wildlife photographer he has to contend with so many variables: bad weather, poor light, equipment break-downs, uncooperative subjects, and even other wildlife (snakes, skunks, cougars, bobcats, bear, moose, elk, buffalo and others. But when it all comes together and he comes home with even just one great photo, it makes all the effort worthwhile. It’s like golf, all it takes is one good shot and you keep going back for more.

His photography is know as Images of creation. His desire is to display through his photography the beauty and glory of God , and that God is the creator of all ,both man and nature. All of nature is part of God's creation and nature testifies to God's existence .
