Gary McIntyre

Gary McIntyre was born on the west coast of Scotland. Being surrounded by dramatic landscapes has fueled his passion for photography and travel. Visiting countries like Iceland, Norway, and Slovenia has led Gary to plan his biggest photographic adventure yet for 2020 – the Himalayas and, in particular, the Everest base camp. Gary has always wanted to capture Mount Everest with his own camera. After receiving a few honorable mentions in international photo competitions in 2014 and 2015, he decided to focus on his photography full-time and is now fortunate enough to teach photography and image editing at Ayrshire College.

Until November last year, my primary editing software was Adobe Photoshop. In November, I purchased Luminar 2018, and I haven’t looked back since. The software is very intuitive, and for me provides results in a fraction of the time compared to Photoshop. It provides me with better results than I was getting with Photoshop due to its AI technology. Skylum’s Luminar 3 allows me to work quickly and I can spend more time out photographing. It’s a win-win situation.
