Travel Photography Faial Azores

Faial Island | Azores, Portugal

Last summer we took a trip to the Azores islands, more specifically the central group that consists of Faial, Pico and São Jorge.  These volcanic islands are absolutely spectacular and still relatively undiscovered… and hopefully they stay that way. Faial is a stopping point on most transatlantic sailboat voyages so in spite of it being a tiny island lost in the middle of the ocean, the vibe here is super international, with the sailing crowd from all over the world in town, fixing boats, topping up supplies and just generally taking advantage of a few days on land.

Dubrovnik Travel Writer Photographer

Mr Hudson | Dubrovnik City Guide

At the beginning of the year I was introduced to the site Mr Hudson Explores by a friend and fellow photographer Emanuele Siracusa, who asked me to co-produce a a few articles with him (his photos, my text). Since then, and co-inciding with our van-life adventure across Europe, I have been able to write and photograph several pieces for the site… the latest of which is a Dubrovnik city guide. I am really enjoying working together with the Mr Hudson team and it´s been great to watch this project grow and develop over this first year of it´s existence, here´s to many more!…

Travel Photographer Lisbon Portugal

Rhapsody Magazine | September 2016

Earlier this year I was contacted by Rhapsody, United Airlines inflight magazine, to photograph the Portuguese street artist Vhils and his works in Lisbon. I have been a huge fan of his work for many years and it was amazing to have the chance to meet him and hear more about his work and inspiration. The article ran in the September issue, you can see it in First and Business class on United Airlines, or see the story online HERE

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…

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…

Beach camping at Praia da Galé | Portugal

We spent a few days this summer at Praia da Galé, on the Alentejo coast just south of Comporta… it´s one of our favourite spots to camp in Portugal and I always feel like we never have enough time while we´re there. This environment, these photos, brings out the dreamer in me… makes me want to drop everything and hit the road indefinitely.

Quiche

It´s about early spring, sunshine on the balcony, lazy days with good friends, flaky pastry, smokey bacon, guitar riffs wafting in on the breeze, dirty dishes that someone else will wash up… hopefully… otherwise, who cares? They can stay there until tomorrow.

travel photographer rome

Tiber River, Rome

One of my favourite times of day to photograph a city is that half an hour after sunset… when there’s still a bit of dusk light in the sky and the city lights are on and twinkling in the blue, fading glow of the evening. The magical combination of natural and artificial lights gets me every time and by the Tiber river we had the added bonus of swirling reflections off the surface of the fast-flowing water. This was our last night in the eternal city that is Rome…
