Honolulu Photographer David Murphey

David MurpheyHi there, David here!

I’ve been a professional photographer in Hawaii for over 20 years, and I work with advertising agencies, graphic designers, public relation firms and their clients. My assignments range from lifestyle photography, resort advertising, corporate event coverage to food and product photography.

This year I’ve been fortunate to have worked on quite a few really neat and inspiring projects. For example, this months featured project is for Heide & Cook. We photographed their technicians on the top of hot rooftops in Kalihi fixing air conditioners, servicing huge chillers and doing maintenance work at the bottom of an elevator shaft. THAT was pretty neat!

However, more significant and inspiring was the opportunity to photograph a project for the Institute For Human Services. Previously, if you asked me about IHS, I’d think of it just being a homeless shelter on Dillingham. The assignment was a real eye opener, and their services go so much further than that. I photographed their staff and volunteers providing hot meals to their clients, community outreach downtown, counseling, medical treatment and employment training. >> view the photographs

The first half of 2016 was pretty awesome, and I’m looking forward to an even better second half of the year!
