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 wtih opening Mint Gallery on October 15, 2011.
The newest addition to the team, Justin is an award-winning
photographer, having worked and exhibited throughout Australia.
With his extensive knowledge of and passion for New Zealand art,
Justin is a great asset to the gallery.
