A graduate of the Fine Art Photography course at Glasgow School of Art, Mackay combines his activities as an artist with crofting and produces a very personal account of a remote Highland culture.

Using the wild and domesticated animals of the area as his subject matter, his photographs make reference to local history without being nostalgic or sentimental. He portrays them as both active and passive participants in magical and ritualistic tableaux.
