Gary McGillivray-Birnie (www.mcgillivraybirniephotography.com) is an international portrait, beauty, fashion, and editorial photographer and retoucher. His interest in photography started at a very young age, despite a career working in the oil and gas sector. 

In 2015, Gary began to explore his hobby interests and transitioned to photography, greatly influenced by Peter Coulson, known as the modern age black-and-white master of photography and a Hasselblad Ambassador, as well as photography greats Peter Lindbergh and Vincent Peters. 

Gary’s technical engineering background allows him to focus on his creative skills and passion for portraiture. 

Gary’s award-winning photographs have been featured in a variety of online publications. Most recently, he was awarded Top 10 Portrait Photographer of 2018.
