Peter Murrell is an avid street, people and architectural photographer based in London. He took up photography six years ago, where rumour has it he is never without his camera thus resulting in a style that can only be described as candid, random, and visually engaging offering an alternative but authentic view of city life.
Coming from a civil engineering background capturing architectural images appealed to him but as time went by he felt his work lacked the 'human element' these structures were designed to serve. Hence you will find his work may contain a solitary figure drifting in or out of the image bringing perspective and atmosphere.
He has enjoyed relative success being a finalist in the Art of Building Photographer of the Year 2015 sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Builders; winner of the Contemporary Portrait Award 2017 in association with the National Portrait Gallery; awarded 2nd place by judges Dame Esther Rantzen, Nigel Atherton (Editor, Amateur Photographer Magazine) and Gray Levitt (Grays of Westminster) in the Silverline 2017 Photography competition, and most recently commended at the British Life Photography Awards in late 2017.
His images have been published in industry magazines and on digital screens throughout the UK and are available to purchase as downloads or on a variety of 'wall art' finishes.
Peter is forever broadening his horizons and is keen to discover new ways of expressing himself from behind the lens.
