Photography

It’s not about the camera.
With today’s technology, the snap of any shutter can result in a pretty picture. But creating images that capture a person or brand’s authentic presence isn’t about technical skill as much as it is about human connection.
I am a storyteller first and foremost. Before I became a photographer, I spent 17 years as the owner of a PR & marketing firm, telling my clients’ stories and getting them covered by high-profile media outlets including The Today Show, Oprah, The Wall St Journal, and USA Today, among others. My job then – as it is now – is to identify and focus on what made my clients unique enough to stand out from the crowd.
Today, my trusty Nikon D850 is my tool of choice for telling stories — stories that I’ve studied prior to each session so I can create a library of photos that stand out, grab attention and even inspire action.
When I’m not shooting in my sun-drenched studio on Oregon City’s historic Main Street, I’m on location helping my clients craft contemporary, branded images to help grow their bottom line.
I laugh a lot. I work a little too much. And I love creating a safe, relaxing and FUN experience for people who are not accustomed to being in front of the lens.

Branding, Graphic Design, Illustration

Murphy is an illustrator, artist, and designer here in Portland with nearly a decade of experience working with clients in murals, poster design and editorial illustration, packaging, and branding. He creates bright, irreverent and wobbly work that twists reality, challenges gravity, and catches you sleeping on the job. Among these projects, Murphy’s illustration experiences include work for not one, but two of his musical heros. You can see his illustrations in Howler magazine, in the Working-Not-Working magazine, on the packaging of two major Portland coffee roasters, the walls of a hip Chinese restaurant, on wine labels in New York City, in every room of a Seattle hotel, inside a vegan restaurant in San Diego, and on a deck of playing cards for the band Modest Mouse. Along with his commercial work, Murphy has exhibited his art in Los Angeles, Portland, and Vancouver BC.
