About Me

Gary McGillivay-Birnie is a commercial advertising and an award winning, international, lifestyle beauty, fashion commercial photographer, based in Stavanger, Norway.

I’m a visual artist who uses a camera to capture my passion to create. And as a digital artist, I use technology to define a style as intriguing, mysterious, edgy but, authentic for beauty, fashion and product industries.

Manipulating artificial and natural light, always with the aim of transforming light to create powerful, edgy and emotional visual images. Inspired by my interest in black and white photography. This is where definition is essential, as a photographer has allowed my commercial work to compete in the marketplace.

I’ve become recognised for my unique skill of leaving natural beauty in the skin as part of my post-production, retouch work-process.

While I’m typically viewed as an incredible photographer “joy to work with”, “friendly, communicative and comfortable in any situation”. Having worked with models, agents, stylists and makeup artists on set and internationally.

My award winning creativity featured online and in print worldwide, publications include: Ellements, Edith, Emote & HorizonT.

Recent location shoots include New York, Florida, Los Angeles, Kazakhstan, Dubai, Australia.

My passion for photography, has earned me the title accreditation Master Photographer in Portrait (MPP) MPI.
