Dave McAleavy self portrait

I’m based in Glasgow, Scotland, working with light painting, infrared and alternative lighting. My main areas of expertise are tripping over things in the dark and losing things in the studio, particularly lens caps and torches (although I still maintain that aliens move them when the lights are out).

You can get me by email at or find me on Instagram (@mcaleavy) and send me a message there. There was a contact form here for a while, but the who needs the spam?
