The Photography of Martin Murray

Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting. My interest in photography has been long-standing although it appears to grow that bit more with each passing year as I race towards the magic 50! I started out aged 17 with a Practika film SLR and down the years have floated in and out of the hobby with a number of different cameras both film and digital. I currently use two Fujifilm X series models, the X10 and the X100. Both are beautiful cameras, light to carry, not without their idiosyncrasies but both excellent photographic tools nonetheless.

I am a self-taught image maker and do not consider nor promote myself as a 'professional' photographer - although I would like eventually to progress in that direction. I know what I like however and attempt to capture that for my own benefit and I hope for the enjoyment of others. My work tends to be a combination of landscape - countryside and urban, street photography and people - be that formal or informal portraits. More recently I have discovered the joys of monochrome; I almost find colour 'boring' while captivated by the artistic possibilities of good old-fashioned black and white. That said the capabilities of my equipment means I have all manner of image type and style at my disposal and where colour best suits an image, colour it will have.

I would be very grateful for your positive comments and if you would like to use any of my pictures please contact me via the 'Speak to Me' tab. For purchase's please use the 'add to cart' tab found with each image offered for sale.

Otherwise, I hope you like what you see and I am constantly adding material to the site so please call again.
