Ruairidh McGlynn (b. 1986) is a photographer and artist recognised for creating evocative landscape imagery that is both captivating and unexpected.

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008 McGlynn pursued a career in product design. His journey into photography was a much more recent event, initiated during a trip to climb a Munro in the Highlands of Scotland. His work is often informed by his intrigue to explore new places and has attracted widespread attention, resulting in commissions from clients such as Apple, Hasselblad, Qatar Airways, Facebook, The Macallan and Jaguar Land Rover

McGlynn’s work has been featured in publications such as Time magazine, Condé Nast Traveller and Vogue Paris, and contemporary photography platforms such as if you leave and iGNANT.

McGlynn is based in Scotland and when he's not at work, he can usually be found pursuing personal projects and exploring the mountains.
