A Month In The Life Of: Fiona Murray

Today photographer Fiona Murray continues my Month In The Life series where I ask some of my favourite creative people to share a window into their life over the course of a month.

Fiona is a super talented photographer who gets huge thumbs up from Kirstie Allsopp no less! Fiona graduated from the Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Fine Art Photography and, after honing her talent with some of the top Scottish photographers, she has been creating beautiful images for editorial, commercial and direct clients for the last 8 years! And I’m excited to say Fiona is also the first photographer featured on my Month In The Life series!

Over to you Fiona, tell us how April went for you:

“It’s great to look back at a month and find out how much you’ve actually achieved. April was really busy for me both professionally and personally, it was my birthday, my best friend visited from OZ and I attended my favourite wedding ever. As well as working on images for an upcoming book published by Harper Collins, shooting food imagery for Simply Add Chilli and product shots for outdoor sports retailer Vango. It all sounds a bit exhausting but it’s also been really fun.” 


8th – I won a Facebook competition!! I’ve never won anything before but loved the Hockenheimer M stool designed by njstudios and promoted by Relabi. I just made a comment and shared. It felt like winning the lottery to be honest.

9th – Blogged about my recent collaboration with amazing illustrator Laura Frame

13th – Sally & Matt tied the knot!

17th – Worked on an on going project with Simply Add Chilli, I’m addicted to anything with chilli so it always seems like a perk of the job that I get to eat what I photograph. YUM!

20th – 33 today! Spent it pottering around Stratford upon Avon with my family who had flown down from Glasgow for the weekend, loved all the street musicians around the RSC who were performing for Shakespeare’s birthday.

24th – Kate arrived from OZ and we took a road trip to Somerset to see her grandpa whose 91. Its great just to have a bit of one to one time with her even though I missed 2 junctions on the motorway and had to take an almighty detour because we were talking too much.

27th – I’m an avid rummager in charity shops/car boot sales and recycling centres and spend a fab day buying vintage.

28th – Photograph the lovely Sof McVeigh in a very sunny London for her amazing new book.

29th – Spend the day at Rutherglen Town Hall photographing the interior and Grand Hall for their new marketing material.

Thanks so much to Fiona for joining in with the Month In The Life series and being the first photographer to do so – it’s really interesting to see the creative life from a new perspective and, unsurprisingly, the images you’ve taken over the month are gorgeous!
