Food Photographer Lisbon Portugal

Taqueria Pistola y Corazon

A few weeks before we embarked on our crazy European road trip (and my access to the internet was reduced practically nothing) I was contacted by a Taqueria Pistola y Corazon, a Mexican restaurant in Lisbon, to shoot some images for their site and branding. I loved this place, their food is SO GOOD and unlike a lot of “Mexican restaurants” that aren´t in Mexico, their food is the real thing… the best I´ve had since I was last in Mexico… which was a very long time ago. These are a few of my favourite images from 2 days spent…

Travel Photographer Cape Town

Mr Hudson is a recently launched travel blog and I am very excited to be on board as one of their contributing writers/photographers. I recently wrote and photographed a Cape Town Travel Guide for them, see the full article HERE, as well as my other contributions.

Tiny Atlas Quarterly Travel Photography

Tiny Atlas Quarterly | West Coast

Tiny Atlas Quarterly is one of my very favourite online travel magazines and I´ve been a fan since they published the first issue in 2013, so it goes without saying that I am very stoked to have one of my images on the cover of their latest, the West Coast issue. Apart from their inspiring imagery and creative layout, what I love about TAQ is that it´s a labour of love, a personal project started by Californian photographer Emily Nathan, that has grown exponentially since it launched a few years back. What started out as a space for creative collaborations and…

Quinta de Sant´Ana

These images are the culmination of a year long project documenting the day to day activities of the Quinta de Sant`Ana, a wine estate just north of Lisbon. The idea of the project was to capture the year of a wine farm, following the seasons and recording all the elements that influence the time-line of small scale wine production. The quinta recently updated their website with some of these images, which you can see in the screen-grabs above. And the photos below are some of my favourites from the year long project… as well as a “behind the scenes” shot…

Marie Claire UK | October 2015

The October 2015 Edition of Marie Claire is out on the shelves in the UK and several of my images are published as part of a Brazil travel story. Not all the images published are mine, but they used one of my images as the opening page, which is quite cool. Unfortunately they credited me as Kerry Murphy, not Kerry Murray, but as the issue is already out, there´s nothing to be done about that… maybe I should consider a name change? 😉 Click HERE to see my original images taken in Salvador da Bahia at the end of last year.   

Booking.com Travel Guides – Albufeira

Earlier this year I spent a week in Albufeira photographing the city and surroundings for Booking.com. They have recently launched a new “Travel Guides” feature on their site, exclusively for people who have booked accommodation through them, and they asked me to photograph their new guide for Albufeira. I can´t post the link here because it´s only visible to booking.com members who have reserved accommodation in the area but I grabbed a few screen shots to give you an idea of how my images were used…

Accent Magazine for AeroMexico – July 2015

Tear sheets from an article I photographed a few months back for Accent Magazine, AeroMexico´s first and business class in-flight mag. 

Be Aromatic

In the autumn of 2014 we spent a few days out in the Alentejo documenting the workings of an organic herb farm for our friends at “Be Aromatic“, who specialise in growing herbs for the essential oil industry. This is a relatively new business and they needed their website to have a cohesive set of images to illustrate who they are and what they do… without being too corporate or industrial about it. Theirs is a family-run production and they have a strong connection to the earth, this is their business but it´s also their life philosophy… they live on…

Food and Home Entertaining – November 2014

In November 2014 an article that I both wrote and photographed was published in Food and Home Entertaining, South Africa´s leading food magazine. As a South African living in Portugal it was quite cool to work on this story, it was great to be able to promote Portugal in my home country. This was also a challenge because it´s the first time I´ve written as well as photographed for a magazine… and hopefully it´s something I´ll be able to do again. I tried to focus on lesser-known places in Portugal… everyone knows about Lisbon and the Algarve but Portugal has…

Some tear sheets from an assignment I shot for the September issue of Accent, Aeromexico´s first and business class in-flight magazine. Next week I will blog some of my favourite shots and out-takes from this assignment.
