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.

Our little wedding at East Haugh house house was amazing, Simon and Jayneanne certainly helped and captured the magic of the day! We had so much fun taking pictures in the garden, lots of laughter and happiness...which is definitely captured in our photographs. We felt so relaxed and Simon was more than happy to accommodate us. We love our pictures and are so chuffed with them. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Simon as a wedding photographer. My only regret is that we didn't have them for longer on our wedding day. Thank you so much Simon and Jayneanne! X x More...

Had a great experience with Simon. He made the photography shoot a very comfortable and enjoyable experience, and was happy to help when I needed some photographs adjusted for instagram purposes. Highly recommend his services.

I recently did a photoshoot with Simon, for both actors headshots as well as bodyshots too. <br />His entire practise was both highly professional and exceptional. He made me feel extremely relaxed and comfortable, as well as giving me very good advice. The shoot itself was fantastic - his artistic direction as well as his use of his expertise was absolutely brilliant. <br />Overall I was extremely<span id="moreReview432354" class="hide"> happy with the photos I received. I would highly recommend Simon to anybody looking for professional photos for a very affordable and reasonable price. A very talented professional.</span> More...

I worked with Simon on a celebrity photo shoot for one of my clients. Neither myself nor my client were used to dealing with celebrities and Simon was excellent both in the build up and on the day. He went over and above the level of expectation and produced a perfect set of pictures. I would recommend Simon to anyone in an instant. Either to other advertising agencies or for personal work Simon<span id="moreReview179458" class="hide"> is friendly, professional and produces superb quality photos.</span> More...

Brilliant photos - and a great laugh! I usually hate having my photo taken, but I hardly even noticed it was happening, Simon made me feel so relaxed and at ease. He took the time to discuss the images in depth and hear where I was coming from and the quality of the final images was brilliant - exactly what I was looking for. Worth every penny! :) More...

Simon created some fantastic profile shots for us to use on our website, taken in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at his studio. He was really flexible and we received the photographs extremely quickly. We look forward to working with him again to create our group shots! More...

After wanting to get a good actors headshot and a decent portfolio of pictures, I found Simon after doing a lot of research on various photographers in Leeds and the surrounding areas. After looking at his website I was very impressed by the quality of his work - the standard and quality of his work was above all the others I had looked at. I contacted him and found him to be excellent value for money. I booked in for a studio shoot and I was impressed with the end results - and more so by Simon and his passion for getting the best possible picture for your needs. I was so impressed that I booked in the following week for an outdoor shoot to get some more natural images - this was a quick shoot because Simon know what he's doing and was able to get the result I wanted fast - again I was impressed by the end result. I would recommend Simon to anyone, whether you're an actor needing a decent simple headshot, or a model needing a glamourous portfolio. Simon was able to bring out the best in me on both counts. Don't book anyone else! :-) More...

Simon did a studio based photo-shoot for me last week and I was more than pleased with the results. It was my first photo-shoot and he really made me feel relaxed and at ease. He is very passionate about what he does and this comes through in the effort he puts into getting the right shot for you. He worked above and beyond what was expected, and even stayed later than expected to make sure we<span id="moreReview142971" class="hide"> got all the shots I wanted. It was a fun shoot with a great outcome, and Simon is so lovely to work with. I would recommend him to anyone and have already booked in for another outdoor session. I booked Simon based on the quality of the work displayed on his website and got much more than I expected.</span> More...

Re: "Turn It Up" - A live music project as part of the I Love South Leeds Festival, obo Leeds City Council. Simon's service was excellent and provided a range of images that Bands and Musicians, who were taking part in the project, could take away with them to assist with future promotion and building their profile. The images were dynamic, eye-catching and creative (shot in different locations<span id="moreReview131267" class="hide"> around the city), whilst also skillfully capturing the character of each band. Needless to say, i'm looking forward to working with Simon again in the future.</span> More...

I am a singer/songwriter and I had some amazing promo shots taken by Simon. They were fantastic and I had a good variety to choose from. Simon was in no hurry and spent the whole day snapping away. He is great to work with and puts you at ease straight away. His photo's were used on my debut album "You Give Me Something" that I released last year. More...

I employed the services of Simon Murray for a photo shoot for an album cover and I was very impressed with the experience. I didn't know Simon but he was recommended to me by a friend. Communication by email was easy before the shoot and we were able to discuss my ideas and agree a date and venue. The actual shoot went very smoothly. Simon took into consideration what I was trying to achieve as<span id="moreReview129859" class="hide"> well as adding his own suggestions and creative ideas. The quality of the photography and lighting was excellent and Simon worked quickly to supply me with the final images I needed. Crucially, I found Simon an easy guy to work with which made the whole experience simple and stress free. Highly recommended.</span> More...

I have used Simon Murray twice for photoshoots, both as a solo artist and to photograph my group. He shot us in different situations - outside on location, in his studio, in the recording studio and at a live gig and I must say that all the pictures were phenomenal. He edited many of the photos giving us lots of choices. He is a true professional and his experience shows in the result. I look<span id="moreReview129027" class="hide"> forward to my next opportunity to work with him.</span> More...

We have used Simon several times. Many photographers tend to be 'tell me what to shoot and i'll shoot it', Simon however takes the time to understand your project and almost becomes a team member making useful suggestions and ideas. He's skills as a photographer are undoubtable and he is always prepared to go that extra mile. I can't praise him enough. More...
