My name is Murphy Byrne, and I’m a Minneapolis-based storyteller.
My love for photojournalism first developed 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 work while living abroad in Antigua, Guatemala as a freelance photojournalist.
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 help others share their 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 the missions and stories of small businesses, non-profits, and other cause-focused organizations.
