Lance Murphey

Photojournalist and Director of Photography

Boulder / Denver , Colorado , United States


No matter the challenge, everyday is a chance to grow and reinvent myself as a visual journalist and to collaborate with amazing people. I am a photojournalist and filmmaker with 25 years experience working for newspapers, wire services, magazines and corporate clients. I was twice honored as Scripps Howard Photographer of the Year, and my work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year, The Best of Photojournalism, Society of News Design, NPPA, the National Addys, TED Ads Worth Spreading, and the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar. My short films have earned three Emmys and I produced a full length documentary called Nobody on the origins of homelessness. Nobody played at film festivals worldwide and was featured on the Dr. Phil Show. I recently moved back to my home state of Colorado and welcome any and all inquiries.
