About Anthony Murphy Photography

Hi there,

My name is Anthony Murphy. After spending many years getting to know my camera, I have since taken photography into a more professional direction. I have had the opportunity over the last few years to provide commercial photography services for numerous local Clubs, Restaurants, Real Estates and Holiday Accommodation, as well as working with local sporting clubs to capture their events. It has given me the opportunity to better understand the photography industry and getting comfortable in dealing with clients, whilst funding a few equipment upgrades along the way.

My passion is and always has been capturing the natural beauty of the Australian landscape and overseas. I specialise in unique and vibrant landscape photography, where I am always trying to get that overlooked angle or important split-second moment, that I can then share with others.

Having been based in Forster, on the NSW Mid North Coast for most of my life, this has given me the ability to accomplish this, where I can distance myself from the typically saturated market of landscapes/seascapes from within the Sydney and surrounding areas and discover some rarely seen wonders of the less visited Australian environment. My extensive local knowledge of the Great Lakes region gives me the opportunity to know exactly where the best light will be for every type of situation.

I welcome any requests for commercial and real estate photography or if you would like to commission myself for a particular landscape, so please fill in the form on the Enquiries page and I will get back to you with a job estimate and further details.

A Bit More Personal

Photography has been a constant distraction in my life for about 17 years now. A drive to the beach, a weekend getaway, a family BBQ, or really any situation at all, I have always felt the necessity to have a camera in my possession at all times, just in case.

In earlier years my mates and I were constantly filling up disposable cameras with photos from local beaches. A little later I was hijacking my Mum’s Canon AE-1 film camera, with the fun and effective 50mm f1.8 lens. It always took a beautiful shot and it taught me a lot about the fundamentals of SLR cameras and how they operate.

My main passion is landscape photography, having pursued this for many years, but I love surfing/wave photography also. The majority of my life I’ve spent as an avid bodyboarder, having chased many different waves around Australia and overseas. This has allowed me to witness and photograph some amazing waves around the world. Check out my surfing/wave photography portfolio for some examples of some of these.

I am mostly self taught within all aspects of photography. A lack of support led me on a path for knowledge, where I turned to either friends who were also interested in photography or the Internet, where I have been able to find countless hours of technical information which has allowed me to polish my skills up to a more professional level.

 

Most photos found on my website are for sale, so please have a look around and feel free to email me if you are interested in purchasing.
