My name is Murphy Byrne, and I’m a Minneapolis-based photographer & videographer.
I developed a love for photojournalism while attending Vanderbilt University, where I graduated with degrees in Anthropology and Sociology while acting as Photo Editor for the Vanderbilt Hustler. Post-grad, I decided to put my education, passion, and experience to use and freelanced out of Antigua, Guatemala for ~2 years.
My two years abroad was a formative experience – both personally and professionally. I grew to love the culture and people, and gained a new appreciation for the role that photo and video play in bringing awareness to important, impactful stories. I saw that I was able to use my talents to share other’s perspectives, and that using my camera to communicate stories was a powerful way to legitimately make a difference.
I’m passionate about taking a personalized approach in communicating and documenting the missions and stories of small businesses, non-profits, and other cause-focused organizations.
