Born in Edinburgh, Scotland 1975 Muir previously worked as a chef, street entertainer and cruise ship photographer. In 2000 he moved to London to complete a post graduate diploma in photojournalism at the London College of Printing. In 2001 his portrait series of ageing British rebels and mavericks, Rebels Without a Pause was published by the Sunday Times Magazine. Since then Muir has remained in London and divides his work between commissions for magazines, corporations and record labels and personal, self-assigned projects. His last personal series was on Israel’s death metal scene and he’s currently working with Kenny Schachter’s ROVE Gallery.
