People Photography for Fashion, Advertising, PR and Publicity in Leeds
Simon Murray was born in Perth, Scotland and through a love of photography that started over 20 years ago, Simon has developed his passion into a style that evokes a sense of openness from his subjects.
People in front of his lens, genuinely have a good time, in fact Simon calls it therapy, not sure if that’s for him or the sitter.
His style allows freedom of movement and inspiration and Simon can be seen photographing a wide range of subjects, but mostly people, whether that be in fashion, music or the arts.Details
Came across these guys the other day in their virtual shop in Leeds Corn Exchange – http://wycameras.com . The guy I spoke to had some interesting lenses for sale and most seem to be available on the site. For me it was a bit like a stroll through a museum, they mostly sell only film ‘proper’ cameras. There in front of me was a bit of a beat up Nikon that I seem to remember was just as beat up when I was using it 20 years ago (2nd hand even then). Couldn’t find my first camera, the Olympus OM-10.
They’ve got plenty of the bulky old Canons, Minoltas, some Medium Format cameras that take me back to my college roots (Remember the bronica ETRS which I sold to buy a cooker!) I even came across a 5×4 camera and was nearly tempted, but the effort seems hardly worth it these days.
Seriously check them out, as they have some unusual lenses(some will work on your Digital SLR) and their 35mm SLR film cameras seem pretty good value, worth going for if you’d like to get back to developing your own.Details
One I took many moons ago, I just gave her the bin, – you can call it a trash can if you like, and she stepped in, thank you DawnDetails

Get fit and show it!
Health, Sport & Fitness photo folios by Simon Murray, based in Leeds
Why go to all that effort with nothing to show for it, great to look back and compare and keep the level of consistency of fitness when you have a record of it.
Come down to the studio or get shots on location.Details
