    Sony Artisan of Imagery Patrick Murphy-Racey’s twenty-five year career has only and always been about photography. Patrick grew up on Chicago’s South Side before leaving the Windy City to earn a Journalism degree from Marquette University. Murphy-Racey has seen a great variety of assignments since his start in newspapers, through the years of being a magazine freelancer, his tenure as a regular contributor to Sports Illustrated, and into the corporate and industrial world of annual reports and advertising. While his assignments are varied and come from many different sources, photojournalism is his first love and constantly informs every assignment. Ever the chameleon, Murphy-Racey’’s career is a long series of re-inventions and rebirths, but the visual storytelling remains the same, even as the tools change. From 4×5 to 4K, he’’s technically inclined, and loves making great images. Patrick is more than competent covering just about any assignment, but his specialties include dramatic and creative use of strobe & LED lighting, sports action photography, environmental portraits, and powerful, well-lit HD interview video production. PM-R shoots both stills as well as motion and is always asking, “What’’s next?”
