Go find the strange and the arresting. Make it personal, with tenderness and respect. Go analog, go tethered, go untethered, change where the sun is relative to your lens, switch out the softbox, put a grid on it. Put a gel on it. Put another gel on it. Kick the tripod. Ask if there’s another view, another room, another flavor, a favorite record, a very first book, a pair of shoes that will never be thrown away. Say yes. Ask if there’s any way they can put sod down in time for the shoot tomorrow. Ask if there’s wifi, if there’s a good sandwich shop nearby, if there are any quirks, anything they’re known for. Ask if they know any good jokes. Tell a good joke. Ask if they like their smile. Make it sing. Make it up as you go along. Make it worth the expense. Make it great.

Hi… Clark here. I’m a people and location specialist based in small town Maryland; but my sense of adventure, and thankfully my clients, take me pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I cut my teeth in the still photography world where I thrive, and more recently I’ve developed my talent as a filmmaker & director. In addition to enjoying the people and exploration, one of my favorite parts of the process is pairing strong visuals & powerful moments with the soundscape that plays in my mind. I’m a huge fan of road trips, backroads, and getting lost. When I’m not working I like to ride my bikes, spend time in the mountains, or stare at a map and find a new place to get lost. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this gig for quite a while, but my dad still wants to know what I’m going to do when I grow up. I’m still hopeful that I won’t have to.

Whether it is a runner focusing before an Olympic race, a refugee becoming the first of her community to receive a university degree or a climber looking up at the mountain he will measure himself against, emotions are the common thread, human and universal. Telling people stories with earnestness and honesty is what I strive to do every time I pick up a camera.
I am grateful that photography has given me so many opportunities to live unique experiences. There are too many to list exhaustively, but highlights include sailing an expedition yacht around Cape Horn, being invited to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Dadaab Refugee Camp, photographing Usain Bolt at the Olympics, skiing to the North Pole, naming three (small) mountains in Greenland, adventure racing through Tierra del Fuego, climbing on K2 and getting winched from a rescue helicopter at night . I can’t wait to see what happens next!
My work is currently divided more or less evenly between adventure and humanitarian/development projects. I currently live in Canmore, Alberta, but frequently travel back to my former home base of Chamonix, France.

In between soccer practices or neighborhood baseball games Matt loved shooting photos on his parents old pocket film camera. As a kid it never occurred to him that photography could become a career but that little camera lit a spark. While pursuing a graduate degree, Matt traveled exhaustingly throughout Europe and found himself happiest while lost in the camera, observing and creating. Several years into an ensuing corporate career he was laid off after just 6 months into a new job. Even worse, the hammer dropped on his first day back to work after the birth of his daughter. As a new dad he was angry and confused but above all he was MOTIVATED. He immediately pulled the rip cord and gathered the courage to start trusting his gut. Matt busted his butt to self produce shoots, make promos and set up meetings in hopes of carving out a space in the industry. Since 2011 word has spread and photo shoots have grown to become integrated productions including motion content and director work in sports, fitness and outdoors.

I’ve worked all over the globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a varying set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I’m hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I’ve created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot. And I’ve spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.
I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I’m not shooting for clients I’m out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my mountain bike or skis.
Thank you for checking out my portfolio, and I look forward to working together!

Lover of hospitality, rocking chairs, deep conversations
and the word "ya’ll."
I first fell in love with photography in the mountains. In my early twenties, I spent a lot of time traveling and playing in the outdoors, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, and especially mountaineering. It’s also where I learned how to tell a good story. Before becoming a professional photographer, I worked for years as an editor and travel writer for magazines like Outside, Men’s Journal and Adbusters. I live in a more visual world now, but my journalistic instincts remain intact, and continue to inform my style as a photographer. I’m still chasing good stories. I just do it with my camera now. I believe there is an inherent truth in discovered moments. That the best images are both honest and believable. Creating a powerful narrative with a distinct visual character requires meticulous planning and attention to detail, a willingness to take risks, the ability to fluidly direct dynamic sequences, and the confidence to improvise and let scenes unfold naturally. My goal is to create images that don’t just feel real, but are real. How I achieve that goal may vary from shoot to shoot, but my motivation is always the same: To curate a campaign of visually distinct images that not only get it right technically, but also hit you in the gut emotionally.
Sean Murphy grew up in Florida’s panhandle, also known as the Redneck Riviera, which explains his passion for capturing gritty Americana. He’s as much a master at capturing spontaneous moments as he is at delivering visually stunning, high concept marketing projects.
Sean has directed national commercials, shot countless music and film celebrities, and been visually behind award-winning ad campaigns for some of the biggest corporations on the planet. If you’re interested in name dropping, check out the partial client list below.
After being based in Los Angeles for most of his career, he’s now bringing thirty-years of global shooting experience back to where his roots lie, Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Why move back? Besides being homesick, being based between coasts gives him easy access to all national locations. With both Atlanta and New Orleans within driving distance, the Fort Walton location is a no-brainer.
Sean’s collaboration with BOTE, the world’s largest selling stand-up paddleboard company, has presented the opportunity to move into video production, helping to create the identity and voice of a cutting-edge brand through fully documented epic travels.
The Murphy Photo Production team delivers full-service video and stills production for multi-platform campaigns, including advertising, editorial, social media, and video.
