Nick Dunmur is a professional photographer and has been all his working life. He is currently based just north of Nottingham.

Born in Oxford in 1966, Nick grew up in Sheffield where he managed to remain relatively unscathed despite regular exposure to Heaven 17, The Human League and Cabaret Voltaire - a brief period of ruffles on shirt cuffs soon passed, fortunately.
Nick moved to Nottingham in 1985 and completed a BA (Hons) in Photography at Trent Polytechnic, graduating with First Class Honours in 1988. He started a photographic business immediately, having taken on small commercial jobs whilst in his final year.

A few [...ok, quite a few] years on and with the experience of working for some well-known and demanding clients under his belt (Paul SmithTriumph MotorcyclesYamaha Motorcycles to name but three), Nick is continuing to develop his own photographic work and interests. He is presently involved in professional commercial and advertising commissions, including making small pieces of video/moving image for clients, and in producing personal photographic work for several environment-driven photographic print works. A large-scale body of work titled Edgelands, has already formed the basis of two exhibitions in the Midlands. Nick also works on an occasional basis as an associate lecturer on the BA (Hons) Photography course at the University of Derby.

He makes his own work and sells limited edition fine art photographic prints thorough his shop at Artfinder and also through his own dUNMUR | Printworks website.

Working with a colleague and professional platinum printer, Richard Freestone he has devised a method of making digital inkjet negatives allowing digital images to be printed using a range of analogue, alternative processes such as silver gelatin, salt, cyanotype and platinum.

Until June 2013, Nick was a non-executive director of the Association of Photographers (AOP) and between October 2008 and January 2011 held the role of Chair. He is also one of the founding group of members of Pro Imaging, another trade body which protects the rights of professional photographers, and up until 2013, represented them on the board of the British Photographic Council.

In addition to producing advertising and commercial work, Nick has recently collaborated with two colleagues - both visual artists and film-makers - to create LIMN, a fine-art agency established to facilitate the production of artwork, primarily in still- and moving-image based media.

Nick won a 'Best Image' prize in the SUN 2010 Photographic Awards and was long-listed for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2014
