When entering the rad world of Sean Murphy Photo… strap in.

Recognized as a master of creating a composition that appears spontaneous, Sean is adept at ‘reigning in a giant bunch of mayhem’ to capture the wild side of contemporary Americana.


As a boy he learned how to set things on fire (in a good way,) but as the son of an Air Force Fighter Pilot growing up in the swamps of the Florida panhandle, Sean developed his first callouses as a fishing boat deck-hand before landing at the New England School of Photography.


He is now internationally known for creating award-winning campaigns for clients such as Ford, Chevy, Old Navy, PlayStation, Walmart and Hard Rock.


Sean’s charisma and approachability with his subjects has helped him build a massive celebrity vault filled with legendary images of American icons.


His current collaboration with BOTE, the largest selling stand-up paddleboard company in the world, has helped create the voice of the brand through adventuring on epic road trips and off-the-grid river runs.


The Murphy Photo team delivers full service production for multi-platform campaigns, including advertising, editorial, social media, and video.

"My team is the best-of-the-best and they’re also the raddest people around" -Murph 

Sean has a home in Los Angeles and lives with his three teenage sons, six pets and his wife.


Plus, not only does he do great work, he’s a really fun guy.
