My name is Taylor Murphy, I am currently 20 and I love photographing local and touring bands in my hometown of Rochester NY!
I love all genres of music, I am a huge KISS fan, and I have a soft spot for local bands! So if you are local to the Rochester area you've probably seen me out at a show! (ya know... pre-pandemic.)
I have had the pleasure of photographing these local bands including, but not limited to, 1000HP, 6's & 7's, Bitter Locks, American Acid, Ritual Walk, Rescue Dawn, Adrenaline, X The Sky, Attic 39, The Results, Finish Last, Envious Disguise, So Last Year, and more!
I have also had the pleasure of photographing/working with some touring bands/solo artists such as Ace Frehley, Dokken, Godsmack, Eric Singer, The Misfits, Andrew W.K., She Demons, Joey Belladonnas Cheif Big Way and more!
I started my photography business in 2015. I followed in my mom's footsteps, as she has been a wedding photographer for over 30+ years. I am lucky enough to have a great and amazing support system around me for my dreams of going to every live concert I can, singing in my free time, and photographing those live shows I go to!
My Aunt Paula, My grandma Mimi, and my parents Michelle and Billy bought me my first camera in early 2014. I was so very excited since I've always wanted my own camera and had never really gotten to use one. I realized quickly that my love for taking photographs could soon turn into a business. I have been blessed with tickets to almost any show I want to go to, regardless if I purchase them or if my parents do. I have always gotten a ride there from my sister Melanie, my brother-in-law Nick, or one of my parents. I am so lucky!
