Hello! My name is Dylan Murphy and I am a photographer and designer based in Saint Louis, MO. My photography and art style covers the entire spectrum. I am currently focused on fine art, commercial, street, contemporary, and portrait photography. I also create montages and create designs for clothing. I was born and raised in central Illinois and am currently living and working in Saint Louis, MO. I also run my own business and small fashion brand called Pretty Bad Co. where I sell apparel, pins, patches, and other items.

Fine art photo prints are available for purchase.

I have a BA in Cinema and Photography from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
