My name is Andrew Murray and I’ve been making pictures in one way or another for as long as I can remember. My main interest today is nature photography, although I love capturing any subject I can. Most of my insect and bird photos came from my own yard or very nearby. I have always enjoyed being able to create a new perspective on something that people might not usually see – especially with insects or other small things – and finding beauty in unexpected places.

My current photo gear consists of:

Canon EOS 60D body

Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Laowa 60mm f/2.8 2:1 macro (sometimes used with extension tubes)

Canon 400mm f/5.6L USM

Canon 430EX II Speedlite with homemade diffuser

Manfrotto 190XPro3 tripod and Alta BH-100 ball head
