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…

Travel Photography Pico Azores

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…

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

Alcaçovas Alentejo

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.

wine farm photography portugal

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…

van life road trip portugal

Van Life | Costa Vicentina

Last autumn, right before we jumped on a plane to Brazil, we hired a camper van and did a little road trip down the Costa Vicentina, the south west coast of Portugal… half in the Alentejo and half in the Algarve, this coastline is without a doubt one of my favourite parts of Portugal. The campervan is all part of a bigger plan that we have, to take some time off work and travel around Europe… it´s all still a work in progress and I´ll tell you more about it once we have a more definite idea of when and…
