Tom Murray

Tom Murray

Tom Murray is an award-winning photographer whose work spans portraiture, theater, fashion, advertising, newspapers and magazines. He perfected his craft working for newspapers, becoming the head of photography for The Sunday Times Colour Magazine, London's first Sunday magazine. He then worked alongside master photographers Helmut Newton and Lord Snowdon. At 25, he received a commission from the Royal Family, becoming the youngest person to receive this honor, and has since immortalized subjects such as Elizabeth Taylor, Angelica Huston, Dustin Hoffman, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren.

In the summer of 1968, Mr. Murray was invited to a publicity photo shoot for a popular rock and roll group by a fellow photographer. As it turned out, the band that they were shooting was The Beatles.

From two rolls of film, Mr. Murray kept 23 negatives which are considered the most important color photographs of the group from that period of their career. The impromptu shoot took Tom and the band on a mad dash around London; the collection of photographs has become known as The Mad Day: Summer Of '68.

His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world and has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers like GQ, Vogue, The New York Times, and The London Times.

Tom is a dedicated fund-raiser who now devotes much of his time to charities around the world and in his own community where he regularly donates to a local association for the blind. He began in 1969 when he photographed HRH Princess Margaret and chose to donate a portion of those earnings to her favorite charities. Since then, he has been involved with the Make a Wish Foundation (In the US, UK and Sweden), Project Angel Food, Friends in Need and the Caron Foundation, personally helping to raise over 2 million dollars. Through auctioning his prints for charities or donating them outright, he has raised an additional 6 million. Realizing the importancc of local charities, wherever his work is exhibited, he generously donates a photographic print to a charity of the gallery's choice.
