About

Welcome to the online portfolio of Richard Murphy!
To me, photography is about the dynamism that exists between light and shade. It’s the reason I became interested in photography and is the driving force behind my personal style. The subtle differences between dark and light in my photographs can be barely discernable at times, but without this dynamic would result in an image lacking vibrancy. As a result, I will happily sit for hours or days waiting for the right moment and I will visit a location many times to capture it adequately. The work which is on display on my website has been taken over a number of years and represents an ongoing and continued development of my style.

Each of the images in the portfolio section can be purchased as open edition prints, with each being individually numbered. All images are printed with a small margin to aid the mounting process. Images can be left unsigned should you wish.To me, the printing stage is almost as important as the initial work involved in capturing an image. Typically, print proofing can take a day or more of fine-tuning before the final print is ready for release. Giclée prints are created with light fast pigmented inks on fine art paper, which I think adds to the three-dimensional feel of the image.

I use only the highest quality materials to ensure a print’s longevity and when displayed behind glass and away from direct sunlight, my prints will last a lifetime or more.At present, each photograph can be purchased in three different sizes, although I will be expanding this service in the future. Should you require a larger custom size, please contact me by email to discuss your requirements and for details of pricing.

I gladly accept commissioned projects and will work with a client to meet their individual needs. Typically this process can involve considerable planning, particularly if the area to be photographed has inclement weather conditions. Feel free to email me using the online form in the contact section to develop an existing concept which you may have or to discuss the feasibility of commissioning a session.
