Chris Murray is a London based photographer specialising in natural light and studio portraiture. He aims to blend state of the art technology with traditional techniques and nostalgic subtleties.
Known for his ‘blank expression’ and candid photography, always aiming to capture beautiful, natural images with integrity. He is not a fan of overly posed photography. The over arching aim for his photography both professionally and personally is to produce intelligent work that is appreciated by all
Often described as a very technical photographer his background is rooted in film valuing the traditional approach to photography quoting:
“A good photographer chooses their use of light carefully. I aim to get it right in camera. I develop using the techniques available to a traditional film dark room when processing my images because I am attracted to images that look authentic, honest. I dislike overly airbushed and photo manipulated images and avoid using it on my images.”
Many of Chris’ projects are often derived from his own view of the world and people in it. Often they are somber/ melancholic in nature and nearly always have a hidden narrative. Always interested in photographing new, dynamic themes rather than straight forward, 2 dimensional commercial fashion projects.
A graduate of Medical Biology BSc (Hons) but has been photographing since very young. Starting in 1990 on 35mm film and finally converting to Digital in 2002. Out of all the disciplines he enjoys people photography most.
