About Me


I am Martin McNae and I am 42 years old and born and bred in Dumfries. I have been passionate about photography all my life. I studied photography in Edinburgh for three years, covering all aspects of the industry from fashion and editorial photography to architecture and portraiture. On returning to Dumfries I opened my studio in Glasgow Street, which I have been running successfully since 1998.

I specialise in wedding and portrait photography and have photographed weddings and portraits all over Scotland and Northern England. I am always keen to create new and exciting images for my clients, whether for a first birthday celebration or a bride and groom’s special day.

I have been using high-quality digital cameras for many years, this is due to the flexibility and never-ending options that digital photography provides. My current cameras of choice are the Sony A7iii & Sony A9 with G Master Lenses. These gives my clients and myself the best possible quality and clarity in every image I produce, ensuring photographs to be proud of.

When I am not working my second passion is golf,  a good walk wasted some would say ha ha but i love the game.  Perhaps being surrounded by some fabulous golf courses and wonderful scenery, a good combination for a photographer. I am not always saying that when its raining but it never rains on the golf course.

I hope this has told you a little about me and what i like to do at work and in my spare time. Enjoy looking over my website and if there is any queries or questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
