Having worked in a bank for several years, Murray realised he wanted to do something more. Enrolling at Reading School of Art and Design, Murray gained a BA Hons in Photography and Digital Imaging, specialising in Art Photography. He was particularly drawn to architectural and industrial themes, which in time became the main focus of his work.

Following graduation, Murray was able to engage his talents as Production Manager for Hyatt Studios in the U.K. In this role, he built on his studies and honed his skills: editing and retouching images, Photoshop, and printing and finishing for a group of portrait and wedding photographers. He also undertook the general management of production for the studio.

Arriving in New Zealand in 2007, Murray travelled the country for five months before settling in Dunedin permanently. He has worked as a photographer, printer and framer in Dunedin since 2008, culminating in achieving his dream and opening Mint Gallery on October 15, 2011.

Since then, business has been growing steadily and Murray has been busy shooting photos, exhibiting, printing, framing and of course, sourcing new talented artists to exhibit.
