Why hello there!
My name is Daniel Murray and I like photography. (I imagine you’ve probably already figured that out.)
For as long as I can remember I’ve been in love with wild places and beautiful scenery. Capturing and sharing the beauty of the world constantly motivates and inspires me.
I’m based near Christchurch, New Zealand. I love this country; living here is a true privilege. Although there are many beautiful places in the world, there’s something very special about this place. We have almost every type of landscape you could possibly imagine, all tucked into an area encompassing less than 0.2% of the planet’s land mass. As an example, within a 200 km radius (as the crow flies) of where I live I can visit an ocean (Pacific) and a sea (Tasman), stand under glaciated mountains climbing nearly 4 km high, and walk through luxuriant forest with an average annual rainfall of 11.5 metres (not a typo). And I live in an area which is just above sea level, completely flat for miles in all directions, and receives just enough annual rainfall to avoid desert classification!
I hope you enjoy seeing my photography and hearing about my adventures as much as I enjoy sharing them!
