Hello!! Welcome to helenmurrayphotos.com

Originally from Derry, N.Ireland I moved to London to study Acting at The London School of Dramatic Art in 2008. I worked in a lot of theatres along the way & basically discovered that I liked photography, in particular theatre photography, a little more than I ever thought I would. So I hung up my acting coat & moved into the world of professional photography. Starting out I assisted Simon Annand for 2 years on his ongoing project ‘The Half’ & now I shoot, predominantly in London, all by my very own self. The dream is to one day have an assistant to carry all my heavy bags.

I specialize in performance based photography including production & rehearsal shots, theatrical events, live music performances as well as actor’s headshots.
