Ray Massey started studying photography at Art College in Somerset. This prepared him for a three year course in Rochester, Kent, where he studied Graphic Design and Photography. Having left the Art College where he was able to build a portfolio and experiment with techniques and processes, he moved to London where he endured a period of assisting. At the age of twenty he became an independent freelance photographer. His earliest work consisted of editorial commissions for magazines, record covers and book jackets before establishing a firm base of design and advertising clients. His passion for solving problems and making effects special has provided him with a regular flow of interesting commissions mainly involving still life, liquids, drinks. His studio can be found in a deconsecrated church in London’s Camden Town.
