Joe Murray as The Visual Advocate

Originally posted May 8, 2012 to


In April of 2012 I had the opportunity to interview Joe Murray who was going by the moniker at the time of The Visual Advocate. Joe is a photographer who does mainly humanitarian photography for NGOs and other organizations that exist to do good in society. Below is my first podcast ever from 2012 (something I had been wanting to do forever). I hope you enjoy this hour-long conversation with Joe. As a useful additional feature I’ve added links to all of the photographers and resources mentioned during the conversation.
