Profotos Member Biography - Stanee Rae Murray

A native of Central New Jersey, Stanee has always lived near the shore. She graduated from Georgian Court College in her home town of Lakewood, and began employment as a Bell Labs engineer.

Five years later, she left AT&T to complete her MS in Computer Sciences at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. After receiving her graduate degree, she decided to use her free time to pursue an interest in photography. Soon she was photographing weddings and portraits for people she knew; in fact, her first wedding client was a previous office mate at Bell Labs.

Over the years, she has studied with a number of master photographers. A major influence was infrared author/photographer Joseph Paduano, whom she considers to be both a mentor and personal friend. His teachings inspired her to start creating infrared scenic photographs, which she enhanced with old-fashioned hand tinting.

Stanee began offering magical infrared images to wedding clients over twenty years ago, one of the first photographers in the area to do so. Her infrared images have won awards in professional photographic competitions at the state, national and international level. Although she photographs in traditional color and black & white as well, infrared continues to be her personal favorite.

In 1996, she became the founding webmaster for PPANJ (Professional Photographers Association of New Jersey) and MARS (Mid-Atlantic Regional School of Professional Photography) In 2001, after five years of service, she "retired" from her duties as PPANJ webmaster, but continued her support of the MARS school until 2010.

In addition to PPANJ, Stanee has been a member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA) .

One of the first photographers in the country to offer infrared portraiture, she is drawn to techniques that lend themselves to fine art and fantasy images.
