Griffin August Boyd Bio:
"My name is Griffin Boyd and I'm a lifestyle photographer based in Ashland, OR. A year ago (Jan. 2018) while living in Venice, CA I bought my first camera.. a Sony a6000. My goal was to first learn the basics of the camera to be able to express my passion for sports, design, and art. My photography style is continuing to evolve each and every day as I continue to learn more techniques while shooting, as well as learning more about post production and editing. I do know the foundation of my style has been shaped from an appreciation of simple and clean design aesthetic. I've followed the career of Aaron Draplin, a well known graphic designer in Portland, Oregon and his style of graphic design has been a big influence on want is shaping my photography style.
Over the past year since buying the camera, I have been lucky enough to contribute content for Dutch Bros Coffee, Adidas, House Beer, and Sole Bicycles. But more importantly, I've found my passion. I look forward to continuing to grow and learn as a lifestyle photographer and I'm so stoked to be able to work on this project for you guys at Sole. I hope we can collaborate more in the near future!"
