Peter Murrell is an avid street, urban, people and, in recent years, wedding photographer based in London.
He took up photography in 2011, where rumour has it he is never without his camera thus resulting in a style that can only be described as candid and visually engaging offering an alternative but authentic view of city life.
Having studied civil engineering 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; Travel Photographer of the Year 2016 finalist; 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; commended at the British Life Photography Awards in late 2017.
In early 2018 his first solo exhibition was held at ECAD Gallery in Peckham London titled City Moments which was well attended. In 2019 category runner-up in CBRE's Urban Photographer of the Year, featured in CIOB Art of Building 10 year anniversary book and was also shortlisted at the British Photography Awards 2019 in two categories, - Street & Portrait.
His images have been published in industry magazines and digital screens throughout the UK.
Peter is forever broadening his horizons and is keen to discover new ways of expressing himself from behind the lens.
