Daniel Murphy took out the 2007 Epson Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year Award for a selection of his images.


Daniel has always been interested in art, with his beginnings in painting and drawing. He has only been a professional photographer for a few years, slowly building up his portfolio and selling fine art prints.

The winning images, ‘Ayutthaya, Thailand’; ‘Blue Mosque, Istanbul’; ‘Headless Mirror Man’ and ‘Robotman’ were inspired by his travels. He also draws particular interest from the work of local artists.

"I really try to specialise in the travel and landscape area, aiming to produce fine art limited prints, similar to what Ken Duncan and Peter Lik have done but with my own moody style thrown in," he said.

"Another photographer I admire would have to be Tasmanian landscape photographer, the late Peter Dombrovski."

Epson has an ongoing dedication to photographic and fine art print making, according to business manager Craig Heckenberg, who lists the recently released UltraChrome K3 Ink with Vivid Magenta as proof of this. The company has also announced that it will continue to sponsor each state for the Epson Photographer of the Year Awards over the next three years.
