Glen Luchford (born 1968) is a British fashion photographer and film director. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and in Litchfield, Connecticut.[1]

A self-taught photographer, Brighton-born Luchford left school at 15 and moved to London, where he worked at a hair salon.[2] Luchford first signed with the New York Agency, Art and Commerce, at the age of 24. He was one of the first to collaborate with model Kate Moss.[3] In 1997, he signed exclusively to Prada, and has since shot advertising campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Levi's, Mercedes-Benz and Calvin Klein. He has collaborated extensively with British artist Jenny Saville with shows at Gagosian Gallery, MoMA and the Victoria & Albert Museum, and has had editorial work featured in magazines such as The Face, Arena, i-D, UK, French, US and Italian Vogue.

Luchford's style is influenced by his love of cinema. He prefers to work in the studio using elaborate lighting set ups to create his evocative and cinematic images.

In 2001 Luchford directed the film Here to Where, about a filmmaker wanting to make a film about a man stranded at an airport. Nominated for the Michael Powell award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The film is considered to be an inspiration for Steven Spielberg's The Terminal.[citation needed]

In May 2009, Luchford signed exclusively with the agency Art Partner, and completed his first solo monograph with Steidl/Dangin.
