Boyd served as cinematographer for Tender Mercies, a 1983 film about an alcoholiccountry singer played by Robert Duvall. Boyd largely utilized available light to give the film a natural feeling which director Bruce Beresford said was crucial to the movie. Actress Tess Harper said Boyd was so quiet during filming that he mostly used only three words: “Yeah, right and sure.”[1]

Boyd was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for “distinguished service to the visual arts as a cinematographer of Australian feature films and television productions” in the 2021 Queen’s Birthday Honours.[2]
