"Gruezi and hello!


Standing in front of a camera can be intimidating at first, so let me tell you a little bit about myself. With over 16 years of experience as a former sports photographer, I have developed a keen eye for capturing the special moments that make life memorable. My love for photography drives me to create unique and unforgettable images that truly capture the essence of my subjects. 


My name is Patrick and most people call me Pat. I am originally from Dublin, Ireland. I am married with three children and have been living in beautiful Switzerland for almost a decade. I like to go cycling, and running and take pictures around Zurich Airport. As a family, we love going to the mountains and visiting new countries. After taking some time to look after my children, it is time to start a new adventure called "Pat Murphy Photography".


You rarely see me go anywhere without a camera, you just never know what you'll see or what could happen, right? I have been lucky enough to travel the world covering many different sporting events while working with famous athletes and even the odd music or movie stars along the way. My biggest achievement was receiving a World Press award in 2009.


For me, a portrait can be a very empowering and intimate study of a person. It's about showing their natural beauty or showing the connection between two or more people. I am dedicated to bringing your ideas to life. Let's work together to create something truly unforgettable."

That's me

"Seit knapp sieben Jahren ist Pat unser offizieller Chorfotograf.
Seine abwechslungsreichen features und Auftrittsfotos sind bei unseren Mitgliedern und Fans gleichermassen beliebt."

Bernadette, CH

"Pat obviously masters his craft asphotographer but that's not all. He has great humour and made me feel comfortable from the start. This shows in the pictures: genuine instead of fake smiles, relaxed instead of tense posture.
He also took amazing pictures with my 2-year old. Those were precious moments that we would not have been able to capture ourselves."

Felix, CH

“Great work by Pat. He chose awesome locations and he had great ideas during the shoot. I felt supported standing in front of the camera.”
