ADA, MI, United States

​I am frequently asked: "How did you get into photography?" ​It all started in 8th grade- when I was pulled from a lottery to participate in my middle school b&w darkroom class. My father provided me with his old 35 mm (where my love for canon evolved) and I immediately became immersed in the entire photographic process. From there I continued my passion throughout high school, and throughout college (Michigan State University) as a specialization in my degree. I am trained on not only digital, but the entire film process- from 35 mm to 4x5 large format film. I can even make a camera out of a room (you should try this- camera obscura). While I work full time as the Marketing & Membership Manager at Associated Builders & Contractors, Western Michigan Chapter; I work photography into my life every day. Whether it is by photographing job sites, or running my photography business when I'm not at ABC (Mia Murray Photography, LLC), I live by the following statements: "Capture the moment, not the pose", and "Photograph the home, not the house." Photography is my passion, and I am excited to have married it to another passion that is expressed in this installation, construction.
