About Tom Murphy:
Tom Murphy is a renowned wilderness photographer, whose passion and specialty is Yellowstone National Park. Since 1975 he has traveled extensively within its 3400 square miles, hiking thousands of miles and skiing on hundreds of extended overnight trips in the backcountry. He has skied across the park twice-once on a 14 day solo trip.
His photographs have been used, both editorially and commercially, in numerous regional, national, and international publications. Clients include: Life, Architectural Digest, National Geographic, Audubon, and Time. Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Esquire and others have sent him on assignments.
His first book, Silence and Solitude, won a 2002 Montana Book Award. Tom’s video, Silence and Solitude, produced by Montana PBS, earned an Emmy nomination.

It is aired internationally each December on PBS.
