Moved by Mountains, Inspired by People

Will McKay is a photographer, filmmaker, and writer who focuses on mountain cultures. His love for storytelling blends seamlessly with his passion for the mountains and the people that seek their solace. Born and raised in Eastern Iowa, he moved out west to pursue climbing and skiing, developing his skills by photographing his partners in the mountains. With a degree in environmental science and journalism, Will demonstrates a unique artistic blend of creative and participatory storytelling. He offers a view into the beautiful landscapes we’re all drawn to and the compelling stories that form from human achievement and adventure.


His previous clients include Patagonia, Arc’teryx, and The North Face. His written pieces and photos have also been featured in publications such as Backcountry Magazine, Trail Runner Magazine, and Gripped Magazine. Recently, he worked on a film that was featured in The Adventure Film Festival.


Currently based in the Front Range of Colorado, Will is constantly searching for projects that are intertwined with the natural world and people's desire to move through the mountains. If you’re interested in working with Will, send inquiries to willmckayphotography@gmail.com
