The Glasgow Gallery of Photography

The Glasgow Gallery began as a free online gallery in 2015, when creator of the gallery Michael McCann realised his and other photographers' work wasn't reaching its intended audience through social media, and with a lack of affordable gallery space for photographers in Glasgow, Scotland, 

Michael started the website as an online gallery where photographers could send their work and have it featured in the online gallery and where it would be shared with other photographers and creatives. The online gallery went on to become so popular that it then became a full time undertaking. 

Michael decided that the gallery should become a physical space where photographers can display their work on the walls of a professional gallery.
It took 4 years of searching to find the location for the gallery and in 2019 the Glasgow Gallery of Photography was born, a gallery where photographers could submit their work, have it printed and displayed, and where a new audience of photographers and creatives could see the work in person.

We believe in openness and fairness and want photographers from all areas of society to participate. We want everyone to feel welcome in gallery and be able to display their work for the public to see.

The Glasgow Gallery of Photography is a registered CIC (Community Interest Company)
