About KIM MURPHY PHOTOGRAPHY
I have always loved being out in nature. I would always take a small point and shoot camera with me on my adventures in the great outdoors.
In 2009, at the age of 55, I decided to invest some time into learning about photography. I bought a Canon Rebel DSLR. I then took a landscape photography class from Nick Carver and subsequently some private photography lessons. With hard work and determination my photography began to evolve.
Nick offers self paced on-line courses. Nick is not only a fantastic teacher but an incredible artist. His work will inspire you. Check out his gallery of work at his website as well as his line-up of courses. Also be sure to check out his YouTube channel.
My passion continues to be nature photography.
Ansel Adams said, "The whole world is, to me, very much "alive"- all the little growing things, even the rocks. I can't look at a swell bit of grass and earth, for instance, without feeling the essential life - the things going on - within them. The same goes for a mountain, or a bit of the ocean, or a magnificent piece of old wood."
That's how I feel about nature. That there is beauty in the grand landscapes and also in the smallest of flowers or creatures. I love photographing all that nature has to offer.
I have always loved the timeless classic look of black and white film photography. In 2013 I got myself a 35mm film camera and some black and white film and have not looked back since. There are many challenges with film photography but that makes it even more worth it.
I have learned a lot from my experience with photography, the most important being, patience. I love every minute that I'm outdoors in nature with my camera. I never tire of it. It brings me immense happiness, peace and solitude.
I hope you enjoy my images.
