• I say this with all sincerity - there are truly few photographers that I have worked with that have that balanced blend of creative, producer, consultant, effective communicator, effective listener and problem solver. Bundle that with years of expertise and a never-wavering sense of pride for his creative, and you'll find yourself watching Michael Murphree take on your most important photography projects and seamlessly execute them with client-raving results. Simply stated, Michael is masterful, his team is solid and the experience of working with him is memorable

  • “I'm an Editor in Chief that knows his way around photographers—I pride myself on it and have worked with some (if not most) of the country's greatest lensmen and women and I count Michael Murphree very much among those great photographers. For nearly a decade, I've hired Michael for myriad assignments spanning the celebrity portrait spectrum. His eye, passion and instinct are something I've witnessed time and again and are the main reasons why I keep going back to him. But, ultimately, a lot of talented photographers can take a good picture. Michael also happens to be someone you want to spend the day with working: Funny, respectful and strictly no-drama, Michael continues to be on my very short list of "must work with" photographers. Call Michael Murphree. You won't regret it for a second.”

  • "Michael & I have worked together a few times and it is always a pleasure. The last job we did together in 2011 (while I was with The Martin Agency) was for Expedia, photographing celebrities on a TV production, which is often not a good combo. Michael dealt with every hurdle with grace & professionalism. We could not have been happier with the results and there are so many layers when working with celebrities. Michael made everyone relax, and he captured truly prefect images and made it look easy. He is a joy to work with & I would highly recommend him to anyone!"

  • “I can't say enough positive things about Michael Murphree, his team, and his amazing photography skills. If you are looking for a photographer for a celebrity or non-celebrity campaign – HIRE HIM. You will be extremely happy with your decision and his photographs. We were first introduced to Michael in 2008 at a photoshoot with People Magazine. We were initially struck by his ability to put the subject at ease, which resulted in absolutely stunning images. Following our introduction, we have hired Michael for every photoshoot we have done. From beginning to end, he is always completely professional, organized, takes amazing photographs, and provides both the edits and retouched images in an extremely timely manor. In addition to the photographs, Michael goes above and beyond, working with us to find studios that suit our needs, as well as making sure that we have everything set for the shoot. He is professional, personable and extremely talented. While Michael has worked with many of the biggest names in Hollywood, he has worked with us photographing real people with real health conditions. As mentioned earlier, he has the ability to put everyone at ease, and bring out their best – which really comes through in each and every photograph. In closing, Michael is the only photographer I will work with because of all of the great qualities mentioned above and I recommend him whole heartedly.”

  • “I've hired Michael to do several environmental portraits for my magazine, and I have to say that I'm always blown away with his work. I've been commissioning editorial photographers for the past 20 years and Michael is with out hesitation one of my favorites. Lets put it this way, if I had the budget to fly one photographer to my cover shoot, Michael would be my first call."
  • Robert Lesser-Editorial Design Director, CFO Publishing April 19, 2011
  • “I just finished working with Michael on a 10-shoot public relations project spanning over 6 months which took place throughout the country. It was a great experience working with Michael, as he is creative, passionate about his work and the consummate professional. This project involved photographing cancer survivors for a high profile pharmaceutical project and my team was extremely impressed with how easily Michael related to every person we worked with, as well as to our clients. We completely trusted him to create an artistic vision and just run with it - it certainly paid off because the finished project is great and we couldn't be happier with the photos! Michael comes highly recommended and my team looks forward to working with him on future projects.”
