In the spring I was contacted by Wings magazine to photograph a feature on the Shist Villages of central Portugal. With the help and guidance of the team at Aldeias do Xisto, the writer and editor, Lydia and I spent three days road tripping through this relatively unknown region of the country, which in many places seems to have stopped in time. A region of mountains and rivers, small stone villages and narrow, winding roads, this is a part of the country that I haven´t explored much and this assignment was a revelation for me. I will definitely be back…

Qantas Airlines – January 2019
Well hi there. Only a year and a half late, but I’m just popping in to share a feature I had in Qantas Airlines inflight magazine last year. Croatia is one of my favourite countries in the world and Dubrovnik is mindblowingly beautiful. I would go back again in a heartbeat and am thrilled to have these images published. Heres a link to the full magazine, online version.
Flydoscope for Luxembourg Air Summer 2019 | Travel Photographer Lisbon
Earlier this year I was contacted by Flydoscope Magazine to be a tourist in my “home town”… its always fun to pretend to be a foreigner (well, I kind-of am a foreigner) in a city that I know so well, a travel photographer in Lisbon for the first time. Its a challenge, actually, to see a place you know well with fresh eyes but I really enjoyed this assignment and in this digital era it´s always a thrill to see my work in print, and even more exciting that it was the cover story. Bonus points, the editor who commissioned…
Pico Island | Azores, Portugal
From Faial we hopped on a ferry across to Pico, named for the volcanic mountain peak that dominates the skyline and is visible from almost everywhere on the island, as well as from the neighbouring Faial and São Jorge. Pico is famous for her mountain (obviously) and also for her wine. We were ill equipped to climb mountains so made up for it by drinking a lot of wine instead. Pico is known for her wines and it is mind-blowing that the first people here even managed to get vines to grow in this harsh, windy climate and volcanic terrain….
Albergaria do Calvario
Towards the end of last year I travelled out to Évora to shoot the Albergaria do Calvario, a boutique hotel inside the walls of the old town, in the historic heart of the city. These are some of my favourite images and you can see more on their website HERE. SaveSave SaveSave
Fathom | Best Travel Photographers 2017
You guys, I am so stoked… Fathom recently released their annual list of 24 best travel photographers and I made the 2017 selection! I had totally not expected this and stumbled upon it about a week after they announced the list and I am super proud, even more so because some of the photographers I most admire (and secretly wish to be) are also on the list. To be recognised on the same page as Dan Tom, Nicole Franzen and Alex Strohl (!!!!) is just beyond exciting so I just had to share this and brag a little bit. 🙂 Check out the entire…
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
Alcaçovas | Alentejo
Most of my husband´s family is from the Alentejo and half of them still live out there, in various towns scattered across the countryside. This works out perfectly as we are always visiting one house or the other and the Alentejo just so happens to be my favourite part of Portugal. This is Alcaçovas, where we spend our Easters.
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.
