Met Member Spotlight: Our Beloved Photographer and Friend From Across the Pond, Roger Murrell!

What can I say about Roger Murrell? You may know that he’s amazing photographer by the beautiful pictures he so graciously shares with us on theMET. You may also know that he has two furry felines that he adoringly calls his kids. And you may have surmised that he teaches photography to a classroom of actual living and breathing kids. But you may not know that through his interesting antics and his witty repertoire, Roger Murrell is one of our most beloved friends of this site. I met Roger through another social network called art review, a place where creative artists from all walks of life share their passions with one another. He came into theMET shortly after we connecting on that site and as you all know by know…the rest is history. I wanted to take a brief moment and thank Roger for making our days a lot more interesting. The beauty of theMET is that if you spend enough time here you get to start to know people in a more personal way. I can’t remember a time when I haven’t been amused by one of Roger’s comments. He makes theMET more special and alive than I could have ever imagined. And now some of his photos and a link to his website, where you can check out some more of Roger’s breathtaking work. We love you, Roger!

And if you haven’t gotten a chance to get to know this wonderful man, you can always connect with him on theMET.
