About David Gillanders

David Gillanders

David was born and educated in Glasgow, Scotland where his first interest in photography arose at the age of 14 through a love of boxing. He had been boxing since the age of 10 and wanted to make images similar to those that hung on the walls of the gyms.

By the age of 15 he was out of school and working as a carpenter/cabinet maker, which is a trade that still gives him  occasional work and pleasure today.

In 1990David married Kirsty and they live in Glasgow with their sons Cameron Jack who’s nine and Brodie Mac who’s seven.

10 years later photography had taken over his life and his day job had become an obstruction. With great support and encouragement from those close to him, David gave up his career to try and make photography the main focus in life.

He says he have never once looked back and consider himself to be the luckiest person he know.

In 2010 he was given an incredible opportunity by Stuart Cosgrove at Channel 4 to make a short film out of his stills work with homeless children in Ukraine, “The Neglected” Achievements
