Thanks to his charm and dry Scottish humor, Finlay MacKay has been able to infiltrate a wide variety of subjects and situations.  Whether shooting celebrities for clients like Warner Bros. Pictures, Fox, ITV, or Entertainment Weekly; top athletes for the likes of Nike, Adidas, and Puma; political figures for NYT Magazine, or personal projects that explore themes ranging from Fashion Week to Prison Rodeo to an absurdist take on The Great Outdoors, MacKay’s striking works embody an almost palpable intensity and emotion.  Drawing from a mix of non-traditional fine arts training at the Glasgow School of Art and his experiences in set design, street photography and global travels, Finlay’s obsessive love of lighting and technique ranges from elaborate, highly controlled flash setups to simple, daylight captures, and has been recognized internationally with three Cannes Lions awards and a National Portrait Gallery exhibition for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
