He landed his first job with Donna Karan as mens floor manager on Bond Street, then soon met Alexander McQueen who offered him a job as studio manager just as he took his role as creative director at Givenchy in Paris. It was exciting and fulfilling learning fast in such a challenging job.
From there it was a move into model booking as well as hair, make-up and stylist booking as an agent, then finally photographers and illustrators working for various agencies until 2006. ‘It was something that I really enjoyed, making money for people, creating something from the outset and seeing the completed project made things worthwhile when they can become pretty stressful at times’ states Murray.
His experience in agencies led Murray to start his own: Murray Arthur Ltd, representing some of the cream of London and Europe's newest talent in photography, illustration, styling and designers. Working with some of the best editorial, as well as many well known high street and designer brands worldwide. the agency was conceived as a platform to provide support, help and organisation to new talent while they tried to make a name for themselves.
In 2009 he went freelance to work for numerous clients he had worked with before as well as new ones, including Topman, Acne, Mihara Yashiro, Puma, Vogue Hommes Japan, Candy magazine, D1, V, Jonathan Saunders, Louise Gray and ASOS.
Murray feels he has ended up doing production naturally, it all just slid into place, and he stills enjoys every new challenge that is placed in front of him, from conception to completion.
