Barry Kirsch

Orlando, Florida, United States

Murder City is the home of photographer Barry Kirsch, a veteran photojournalist and commercial photographer with nearly four decades’ experience behind the lens. Barry says his early photojournalism days helped imbibe him with a deep love of story.

“I find that the smallest details are often what reveal the biggest and most intriguing facets of a story,” says Barry. “My work leverages those often-over-looked details to create stunning images that captivate viewers and beckon them to lean in and discover more.”

Barry’s signature Murder City style is anchored in: his mastery of unconventional lighting techniques; his use of uncommon angles and composition; and his artful ability to powerfully communicate complex feeling and mood with a single photographic image.

Barry is a member of the National Press Photographers Association, WPPI, Lightstalkers and founder of Foto Fire and iPress News. In addition to his client assignments and personal creative projects/exhibits, Barry also guest lectures, maintains his popular Murder City Blog, (The Photographer's Notebook) and leads technical workshops at photography programs and events around the world.
