“I have the chance to get involved with a lot of things here and meet new people.” Agne – Dumfries
Photo – @kirstinmcewanphotography 
I’m originally from Lithuania and came to Dumfries to study. Most of my family live in Norway just now. My mum is Lithuanian, but the rest of my family is Norwegian, so I get to go there a lot to visit them. It’s a fun international family we have. I finished studying Environmental Science and Sustainability this year, but my interests lie in environmental art, therapy and eco-psychology. 
Since finishing uni, I’ve been involved with different organisations and charities in Dumfries, helping people with mental health problems and doing things such as running art workshops for young people. Working with youth groups in the arts is something I’m really interested in and I hope that this is something I can make a career out of. 
I work in a little café in the town centre as well, and I love being part of this small team. We run lots of workshops and events here as well and it’s really good that I have the chance to get involved with a lot of things here and meet new people.

“I started boxing at the age of 14 because I was getting into a bit of trouble.”
Martin – Bathgate
Photo - @omaralzidjali 
My dad took me up to the local boxing club in Livingston and everything took off from there. After a couple of years I fell away from it but at the age of 20 I gave it another go and started competing. I had a few amateur fights and went away over to Cyprus and boxed over there, but I always felt my style was set for the professional ranks. In 2015, I signed a 3-year deal with a boxing management team. My current record is 4 fights, 4 wins. Unfortunately, due to a couple of nasty injuries, I haven't been able to box as much as I'd like as a professional but this year will be different and very busy. I'm not a full time athlete so I have to fit training around a working day. From around 5am I go for a run before work and from around 6pm I’m training.  At the age of 14 walking into that old run down boxing gym I would have never have thought I'd get as far as I have and there is still such a long way the go.

“I’m looking forward to pushing the boundaries of poetry.”
Daniel – Dumfries
Photo - @kirstinmcewanphotography
I have lived in Dumfries all of my life and I have seen a small part of other cultures and countries, but I can honestly say that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world. I am a father to a beautiful 3-year-old boy and soon to be husband to my best friend. I run Spoke Promotions by putting on live shows in the town for touring acts and I also started up D&G Poetry and released the first issue in 2016, in which there were many contributions from highly acclaimed poets in the region. I write poetry too and I enjoy it a lot. It’s even better when someone thinks your stuff is good enough to be published and I’ve been fortunate enough to have some of my work printed in various publications. I’m looking forward to the future and challenging myself on new projects and pushing the boundaries of poetry.

Great to wake up to a wee feature on there including an interview about my job as a subtitler. ・・・ “I can go to work without the shackles of a shirt and tie and I can be me.”

Just three years ago, I had no idea what career path I would fall into but never did I think my dream job would fall right into my hands. In fact, up until I applied, I never really thought such a job existed. I am a subtitler. Yes, it's a job done by humans - for now. TV coverage is pretty much constant, so shift patterns vary. Some days, I will be crawling out of bed to start at 6am, and others see me work until midnight and beyond. When people ask, "What do you do for a living?" I reply, "I get paid to watch TV." It’s a job that allows me to be myself. I can go to work without the shackles of a shirt and tie and I can be me. I can wear a band t-shirt or even a ripped vest. I have a keen interest in getting tattooed, which can be a grey area with employers (although we won't get into that) and I can do that now. I work for a company that promotes strong mental health, even providing outlets for help. My job allows me to be me.

"Animals have beautiful souls and we don't deserve them”.
Lyndsay - Glasgow
Photo - @rebeccaamacphail 
I have always loved horses for as long as I can remember. I have volunteered in animal shelters and stables from a young age and worked on rehabilitating rescue horses who have been saved from horrible environments and living in very poor conditions. Following on from horses I began training and handling German shepherd dogs for showing and working purposes. My involvement with horses helped me to understand how my movements and emotions can affect another animal and also how it can have a huge impact on how anxious, calm or tense the animal is. Each animal has a beautiful soul and we absolutely do not deserve them.

"If I had the money I’d just bugger off somewhere for 3 months and then I’d be happy.” Giulia - Glasgow
Photo - @rebeccaamacphail 
If I had the money I’d just bugger off somewhere for 3 months and then I’d be happy when I got back. I love travelling. I went to Amsterdam in the summer and last year I went to Berlin. Next place I want to go to is Eastern Europe  so Croatia, Czech Republic, that kinda thing. I’ve mainly been travelling to Europe at the moment because that’s cheap. If I had all the money in the world I would go everywhere. But I think at the moment if I had enough money I’d go to New Zealand for a month. I’d love to watch the All Blacks play in Christchurch because I think that’d be wonderful.

"Never plan to be somewhere because you’ll never get there if you plan it." Allie - Glasgow
Photo - @rebeccaamacphail 
I have no clue where I’ll be tomorrow, I’m just winging life basically. I’m a photographer and I’m trying to get in to big magazines. I’ve been published twice before and I’m hoping to keep going and get published for a third time at least. I’ve been doing quite a lot of work in London and I’m going back next year. I don’t want to stay in Glasgow. I’m only in Glasgow to study and then I’m going back to London. My plan is to go to London and try and get published there. If I can’t then I’ll travel to Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo. Basically, places where fashion is quite big. In Glasgow the fashion community is so small, which makes it difficult to build a career here. Most of the work I do in Glasgow is for some of the modelling agencies - taking photos of new faces and doing test shoots for their models. I have no idea where I’m going to end up. I think you should never plan to be somewhere because you’ll never get there if you plan it.

"I like to make people feel good about themselves.” Victoria - Kings Park

I’ve always wanted to be a make-up artist. I got into it through college. I had to do a year of hairdressing first, which I didn’t want to do, but I got into make-up artistry after years of being in jobs
I didn’t like. I like to make people feel good about themselves and transform them into the most beautiful version of themselves. I would love to work in TV and film for a while to experience that,
also theatre, because I’d like to work in special effects for a bit. For now though, I really enjoy working in the salon doing special occasion makeup. I love it at the moment but can’t wait to progress further.

"I can come to work looking lowkey like a mess and no one really cares”

I just came back from work - i'm a photographer at this children's modelling studio, so I?m really used to being behind the camera and accepting the fact that I can come to work looking lowkey like a mess and no one really cares. So being in front of the camera is incredibly daunting and lets me put into perspective how a child might feel when I?m snapping away in the studio. The people I work with are the best! The parents and children are super fun and there is always a new story for your heart to melt over.

"It’s all about integrating classic with modern”

Vincent

Photo - @omaralzidjali

I have a pretty normal life. I’ve got a 9-5 job and I hang out with friends during the weekend. We usually spend it hanging out, listening to music, rapping and chilling. I’m part of a collective called Togo Fam and Subfriction Records. I’ve got a pretty laid

back personality so my life tends to be just that… laid back. I’ve been making music for around 6 years now and I’m a huge fan of movies. I’m really into Neo Noir type films. I love everything about the Neo Noir genre. It fuses the old school with the new, more visual, colourful techniques. It’s like when a modern photographer takes a picture on a film camera, or a music producer produces something on tape. It’s all about integrating classic with modern. It puts such a cool twist on it. I love the aesthetics of the genre, the themes, the different and odd camera placements. It’s a nice change from all the stuff that’s been coming out recently.

"Dubai can be really draining, so when I come to Glasgow I get to re-energise” 
Saleem

Photo - @omaralzidjali

I travel a lot for work. It’s pretty amazing actually because I get to see the world and all the different things not many other people get to see. I’m very lucky, but it really takes its toll sometimes. I’m half Scottish and my mother is from Glasgow but I mainly live in Dubai. When I come here I absolutely love it. It’s less stressful. Dubai can be really draining, so when I come here for like 3 weeks, I get to re-energise myself and relax a little bit. I’m going to the highlands for the first time in my life this weekend and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve heard a lot about the fresh Scottish air so that will be nice. I really want to see some highland cows or deer too.

I study in Edinburgh but I pretty much live in Glasgow. I come back whenever I have time off. I’m studying interior architecture at Edinburgh Napier University and I love my course. I don’t think interior architecture was something I always wanted to do. I think it was something I only looked into in my final year at school because I wasn’t entirely sure on what I wanted to pursue as a career but I grew to love it very quickly and I don’t regret my choice at all. I’ve got my exhibition coming up in the next few weeks as well as my graduation next month. I have already applied for jobs so I’m really excited for what’s to come.

I’ve been a musician for around 13 years and I think I have the usual ups and downs most people experience. It can be the best and worst job at times. Fortunately, either way, it’s rarely boring. The past year has been spent playing up and down Britain. We’ve just finished a 30 gig run and we've been doing a lot of festivals lately. We have more gigs coming up so now is the time to take a minute out, which gives me time to get a couple music videos done before heading to do it ALL over again.

Peter – Dumfries

I studied interactive design in London and I returned to Dumfries a year ago to focus on my creative practice while developing my own studio. In the last couple of years, I have become fascinated by trees. This is born out of utilising wood in a project that I began working on around the same time. This interest has grown as I've looked more into research on their lives and their connections to both us and the environment. Woodworking is the medium inmy current creative practice. I started with making vessels and bowls and have begun progressing to larger more sculptural pieces. I love making things that balance on narrow points creating a sense of vulnerability and fragility. My work focuses on provoking thought about trees and how they are both strong and fragile at the same time and how these are both good qualities. Also, this reflects my own thoughts about masculinity and seeing vulnerability and fragility as positive things not to be afraid of.

I work as a makeup artist in Dumfries and have done so for a few years now. I mostly do weddings and nights out or special occasions but also spend time doing masterclasses and working in other studios. I love that every day is different, and I get to meet new people every day through doing something I love.I recently bought a house with my husband and we’ve spent a lot of time and effort renovating it. I always thought renovating a house would be fun but it’s actually turned out to be the most stressful thing I’ve ever done in my life. What this experience has really taught me though is how much I take things for granted. Simple things like a working shower or toilet. We were without both for weeks so we had to stay with my husband’s parents for a while, which was an added stress on top of renovating the house!

I never thought I’d come back to Dumfries when I left for uni, but after a skiing accident I had to move home. I’m doing a lot better now and am involved in the local arts community, which is really revitalising the town and making me glad to live here. Recovery is a slow process and I still have to be careful, which people don’t always see from the outside. Most of the time I’m glad of that, but I think health and disability is a really important conversation that we don’t have enough understanding of. It sounds strange but it’s only since leaving the city that I’ve had time to actually come out about my gender and sexuality and learn to present myself in a way that feels affirming. I know I’m really privileged to be able to do that. This is one reason I’ve started organising queer arts events in Dumfries; to provide more spaces of community, as there’s a lot of isolation for rural LGBTQIA people. It’s hard sometimes, often these things are two steps forward and one step back – a slow, lifting dance onwards and upwards!

I’m 23 and currently in my fourth and final year studying Primary Education at the University of Glasgow Dumfries Campus. I’ve lived in Dumfries for 3 years now but Glasgow will always be my home. This summer I au paired in in Barcelona with the coolest and most lovely family. It really was an incredible experience and I wish I had done it sooner. I looked after two beautiful girls aged 10 and 12; I miss them so much now that I’m not spending every day with them. During my experience as an au pair, I was able to explore the city, learn another language, live with a Spanish family and immerse myself in a different culture and lifestyle. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about becoming an au pair to do so. Being an au pair has inspired me and motivated me to learn different languages, explore different cultures, travel, and always to be open to new opportunities.

Ruaridh - Dumfries
Photo- @kirstinmcewanphotography

I’ve been really finding myself over the last year and a half, and I guess, emotionally, now feels like a good time for me. Last year I was living in Sweden and I guess something about their society and the lifestyle helped me really start to come to terms with myself. I came out to my friends and family, and ever since I’ve felt my confidence shoot up drastically. I went away to Sweden full of self-loathing and I was pretty bitter but I feel like I’ve come back so much more confident and comfortable in my own skin. Coming out and accepting myself has led me to make even more leaps forward, like starting my own PR business and having a more proactive social life. Right now, I really want to see my hometown of Dumfries develop a more ‘Scandi’ approach to things. Hopefully that kind of social dynamic can help more people who are struggling or feeling oppressed just like I was.

Cara - Glasgow MCM Comic Con Dressed as The Beldam @carascosplaychronicles

I’ve been planning this costume for about a year now and been making it for about 2 months on and off. I’m actually on a performance costume course at Edinburgh Uni and I’m enjoying it immensely. I’m in my 3rd year right now. I actually chose to do costume because people kept asking what I was going to do after I finished school and it made me really irritated so I picked the weirdest one I could find, ran with it and ended up enjoying it. In the future I’d love to make costumes whether it be for film, theatre or making it for anyone who wants something brought to life.

Cameron - Glasgow MCM Comic Con Dressed as Old Man Joseph Joestar 
I’ve come to Comic Con every year that it’s been in Glasgow so far. I’ve always been really into geek culture, it started with comics and then moved onto manga and anime so anything geeky, I’m a part of. I actually met my girlfriend here at Comic Con two years ago and she was dressed as Bayonetta from the Bayonetta game series. The funny thing is I met her there but I didn’t realise she went to the same college as me so we started talking about Comic Con at college and I asked her who she was dressed as and she told me Bayonetta. It turns out I had got a picture with her at Comic Con and didn’t realise. One thing led to another and we started going out.

I recently just finished an HND in photography at COGC and it was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I met so many wonderful people that have completely inspired me to pursue my dreams and never stop creating. The reason I think I love photography is because it has caused me to fall in love with light and see the world around me with fresh eyes every single day. I’ve decided to take the year out to discover myself a bit more before returning to hopefully study the BA. A friend and I have just got our first studio together and we spend a lot of time shooting and creating so I have a lot of self-projects I’m working on within the next coming months to keep me busy. When I’m not in the studio I hope to travel a lot more, shooting even more film, meeting more inspiring people and taking their portraits.

Throughout my life I've always had a plan, a direction to follow and a destination to reach, but for the first time in my life I feel lost and I'm learning that it's okay to be lost. Music has always remained constant. My dad was a big influence to me growing up and I share his passion for music, particularly the Mod scene. I was in a band for a while but it sort of fell apart and I decided to study art which is when I discovered my flair for graphic design. More recently, my friend and I have been collaborating on a project in our shared studio. When I discovered that my grandma had Alzheimer's, I knew that I wanted to spread awareness in a creative way that would resonate with young people and so that's what we set out to do.

I left uni in my second year as i realised it wasn't for me. So I went right into full time work. I’ve always been watching creators on YouTube and enjoying their content. I stumbled across a new creator and started getting involved in his community. After meeting up at a convention we became friends, I met more and more creators through him. Eventually I saved up enough money for a laptop and microphone and started making my own content. It's just been over a year since my first video went up. The dream is to do YouTube and Twitch as a full time job, but we'll see where both I and the websites end up. Having a community of people who are all friendly, engaging and supportive is my favourite thing about it all. I enjoy making content and they enjoy watching it, and that makes me happy. I didn't expect to get anywhere at all actually. But I've had numerous people help me out and get me to where I am, I'm forever grateful to them. The next step is to reach 5000 subscribers which I'm very close to. After that I'll go as far as I can. I've got some big opportunities coming up such as being on the @createscotland creators panel at @4TGGAMECON at the end of this month. I'll be amongst other creators and addressing a live audience which is a huge first for me!

This year didn't start off well for me. Within the space of a month between February and March I had lost a close family member suddenly, been rejected from my top three university choices and lost a close family pet. Whilst facing personal struggles, I kept my head high and kept pushing even though I didn't want to. It came to June, my exams were finished and I could finally relax and I was heading over to Ghana to do some volunteering within a local school for a week. It was an incredible opportunity that made me realise that even though things in your life can get so tough that all you want to do is give up, you just need to keep going. By heading to Ghana and spending a week with some of the poorest, yet happiest kids on earth, it helped me realise that there's always something good that comes out of bad situations. Because of this, I'm looking forward to the next year and what it holds for me and taking on the positivity I saw when I was volunteering.

My name is Kieran and I am planning on moving to the fabulous city of ‘Glasvegas’ aka Glasgow. I’m going on to study a degree in Photography starting in September which will be amazing as I have the chance to study something that has been a life-long passion of mine. I have actually studied in Glasgow for a couple of years now and I have really enjoyed it so far. I have met so many amazing and like-minded people over the past couple of years and have really gotten a taste for the city life.
I am actually from a small town called Armadale which lies right in the middle of Edinburgh and Glasgow in West Lothian, and yes, I have encountered Susan Boyle on a few occasions. It’s quite funny because people from Edinburgh think I sound Glaswegian and the indigenous people from Glasgow automatically assume I’m “a pure Jambo”.
I could never really see myself moving out of 
my 'wee bubble' Armadale, as the thought of moving to a whole new place by myself was a profoundly daunting prospect. However, studying in a city like Glasgow did open my eyes to the
opportunities out there for a young creative like myself. 
The thing I am looking most forward to moving away from home is the sense of independence and being able to focus on my photography and possibly setting up a business within the next couple of years. Also meeting new people and making new friends is also pretty awesome as well. You
Glaswegians are a friendly bunch.

Whilst I was at university I had a placement at a
fancy textiles company in London and it was incredible. I was really grateful for the opportunity, so I wanted to thank everyone in someway. I decided to go down the handmade route since they were all so creative I thought it'd be appreciated more than some cheap bits and bobs. I settled on chocolate truffles. They are fairly simple to make and it was something everyone would enjoy.
On my last day I pulled out this tupperware box of chocolate truffles and everyone was in awe, really impressed and really excited. I was just chuffed to bits!
I've been making chocolate ever since, nearly 5 years now. I make it for Christmas and birthdays and everything in between, I even had a pop up shop at uni for a couple of weeks as part of one of my modules.
After working for a year as a waitress and saving enough money I'm off to college to study professional cookery in order to discover the world of chocolate. So many people have said to me "oh a chocolatier, that's different" and you know what, it is, and I'm happy with that.

I wanted to start a youtube channel because there is so many amazingly talented people in and around Lanarkshire that love creating things just like me and I wanted to shine as much light on that as possible. Other countries have countless online platforms pushing independent creators and helping them build a following and a name so I wanted to be the guy to start it in Scotland!

I've been really getting into my health and fitness recently. When I left school I was so uncomfortable and self-conscious of how I looked and felt which made it difficult for me to socialise and feel comfortable. My mental and physical health wasn't good. So when I left uni I decided to go vegetarian and not watch what I eat but, basically not eat crap every single day. At the beginning of this year I joined the gym and I think it's the best decision I've ever made. I was so nervous at first but once I started I loved the way I felt from working out and starting to feel good about myself again after losing the initial weight from becoming a veggie. I'm building muscle and noticing changes in how I feel and I'm actually proud of myself. I never ever thought I'd feel like that. Now, going to the gym isn't about losing weight or gaining a bodybuilder body, it's the excitement of seeing how far I can push myself and how I'll change in the process. I can't wait to see the progress I'll make in 6 months.

I got into photography when I was living in Thailand, but it wasn’t til I came to Scotland that it really got into full effect. I met a bunch of people who enjoyed going to cool places to take photos and we ended up doing that every weekend. I still don’t feel like I’ve grasped the art of photography yet, which to me is a good thing because I find myself always wanting to take photos. I always have my camera on me. I’m a big fan of architecture photography. I love finding beautiful buildings that are either coloured interestingly or built in a cool way. I’m off to Paris in a couple of months and I’m pretty excited to see what I capture over there.

I am a passionate, outgoing, confident, strong minded, but a quiet observant person. I love music, dance, all things beautiful & creating my own style. I've been singing since I was a baby, dancing since I was a kid and discovering my own style since I was a teenager. I spent 8 years chasing the wrong things and people only to have woken up to realise my worth and the power that lies within me. After an enlightening trip to Cyprus, I'm ready to sing, dance, style, travel, eat, meet, greet, build, love and laugh my life away! Life's too short to be lost in the sauce. There is a bigger picture and I'm striving towards mine day by day bit by bit even if it doesn't make sense to others it all makes sense to me. I'm loving every part of my journey! I'm fearless, ready and receiving blessings and love everyday of my life. It's endless and doesn't stop hence why I have a tattoo which says 'Can't Stop Won't Stop' - Taken from the first book I ever read about the history of HipHop not as we know it today.

Well, I’m Steven. I take photographs, make music (El Song Capitanos) and I unintentionally move around a lot. To call it Nomadic would be romantic. One thing that was intentional though was Scotland.  One thing I expected when I got to London was the potential to take my photographs up a notch and commit to making a book and a few zines, but it costs money to breathe there, so that was quickly dashed and replaced with loneliness. Thankfully, my friend Lee from Scarborough pulled me out of that. He was already living in Glasgow, and threw me onto the couch with a duvet whilst his other housemate was moving out, and then I signed a lease  to make things official. For the first time I was living with someone who loved photography and who knew people who also loved it. It was a good decision (imagine that). Ever since moving up here I’ve felt supported, both in my noise and my pictures. It is beautiful and that is how I feel about Scotland.

I’m Scott and I’m 23 years old. I’ve moved around and about Paisley a bit (mon the UK City of Culture 2021). I spend most of my time kicking around bars and talking to strangers, so much so that my friends are probably wondering where I am right now. They might have gone home actually. I’m not sure what I’m going to end up doing with my life, but I’m sure I’m destined for a knighthood one day.

I’m not sure what I’m going to end up doing with my life, but I’m sure I’m destined for a knighthood one day.

I'm originally from the peninsula of Dunoon but now in Bishopbriggs. I'm a pug mum, and currently work in Finnieston  as a plate slinger/supervisor by day, and wine connoisseur by night. The city of Glasgow does my social life wonders! I love to socialise with my nearest and dearest and my past years have taught me that family and friends are the richest gift anyone can give you and you should make the most of them. Life is for living and not spectating.

My little cousin @provenzanothedon just dropped a 32 bar #frontseatfreestyle no messing about. If you could go and give him a little watch it would be very much appreciated. #scottishhiphop #trufactz #edinburghhiphop #scottishrap #bbcthesocial

I was born and raised in the highlands of Scotland so moving to the city for University was something I was really excited about. After finishing my degree in psychology and turning 25, I found myself sort of going through a quarter life crisis. I decided to pack my bags and head to Australia with a £700 overdraft. It was extremely last minute and completely unplanned but it was the most amazing thing I’ve done. I had no idea what I was going to do in Australia but I felt so free and can honestly say I’ve caught the travel bug. I ended up staying there for an entire year. I’ve been given some amazing job opportunities which involve me travelling but I’m torn between either picking a career job or biting the bullet and just spending the rest of the year travelling and then focus on work next year. I’m headed back to Lairg to be with my family for a bit and to do some re-evaluating as I’m still really torn between going down the career path or going travelling. Who knows!

My name’s Gabby, I’m 21 and I’m from Sunderland. Ever since I was little I’ve moved around constantly because my Dad’s in the military. I’ve lived in four countries and packed up boxes and moved house eleven times. I never get bored of it though! My favourite place I’ve ever lived has got to be Oman. There’s no way to describe how unbelievable the country is and I know that I’ll always call it my home even though I was only there for such a short amount of time. I chose to study here in Glasgow when we moved back but ended up quitting college twice. I’ve worked in some awful jobs and some great jobs over my three years here and still have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life. I absolutely love Glasgow and think it is one of the greatest cities I have ever been to, everyone is so friendly and it’s pretty impossible to stay bored here with all it has to offer. My future is a complete mystery to me but I’m excited to see where I end up!

Hi I'm Vova. I'm an odd mix between Russian and Scottish. I'm a musician by the alias of 'floatinurboat' but also a little more with the simple ambition of taking over the world. I've been 
presented with crazy, exciting and extraordinary opportunities in my life to showcase myself and the music that I make. My aim has also been to show that there’s a bit more to life and provide an environment of safe thoughts and positive revelations. I've always wished happiness for everyone and have received the most incredible comments about how my music has helped people through their unpleasant times. Living in Scotland has provided me with the most heart-warming and 
supportive community which I am forever grateful for. Peace and enjoy life.

I was born and raised in Glasgow. Ever since I was a kid, I was always intrigued by buildings and how 
they were constructed. As I grew a little older, I became even more intrigued with them, so I decided 
I wanted to become an architect. I was fascinated with all the drawings the architects had to do and 
all the crazy little things involved with being an architect, it honestly made me genuinely fall in love 
with it. I’d find myself watching those National Geographic shows about mega structures and I knew I wanted to be involved in the architecture industry. I recently just graduated from Uni, I obviously did architecture. I’ve got a placement at an amazing architecture firm and I know I’m going to have an amazing time there. I don’t know what to expect but that’s what I find exciting about it all.

Lee – Whiteinch
Photo: @omaralzidjali

I’m Lee, and I’ve been living in Glasgow now for a year and a half working as a party photographer.

I’ve photographed parties for a fair few years and that’s how I made my living back in Scarborough, my hometown. Humans fascinate me and despite not being massively sociable, photographing folk on a night out is pretty much my ideal job. Being from a small town, where everyone thinks they know each other’s business, you’re exposed to a lot of the dramas involved.

I guess I got a bit of a reputation for photographing fights and calling out blokes on how they treated women and basically for refusing to shy away from these situations all the while capturing some of the nicer aspects of a night out. It ultimately lead to me crowd-funding and releasing a photo-book.

I try to observe and be as matter of fact as I can with all my photos be that at parties, events, street scenes, political protests etc... I’ve received more death threats than I can count from members of the EDL (English Defence League) and had more than my fair share of punches and stranglings from documenting the things I do. So I guess not everyone appreciates my non-bias. Gotta have your critics.

That said, it’s not all bad and moving to Glasgow has very much been a positive in my life. The people are generally much more welcoming and open-minded which is handy when I'm out photographing my pals that dig getting naked in public. Never any hassle.

When I’m not taking photos I’m probably pissing about with my obtuse-grunge band called Closet Organ. We released an album on vinyl late last year and I think we’ve sold it to like 4 people so far so I guess you can bet on seeing us headlining the SSE in a month or so…

Calum – East Lothian 
I’ve been writing and performing poetry for five years now. I got into the Glasgow scene and made some friends there. I also studied poetry at uni so, aye, it all came together. Sometimes I get nervous when I’m going on stage, sometimes I don’t. It’s kind of random. The best bit is when you come off stage because that is when the buzz really hits. When you come off stage there’s the relief that it didn’t go catastrophically wrong. When people have enjoyed something you’ve written and gotten something out of it, that’s the best feeling. There are loads of cool wee open mic nights in Edinburgh and Glasgow and all around Scotland. Go along and see what people are doing. Everyone is really friendly and supportive and keen to hear new voices and once you’ve done that first performance it just gets easier.

Ryan (Kid Robotik) – Glasgow
I’ve been rapping and producing since I was 13, my brother got me into it. He was a graffiti writer in Glasgow and used to let me up in the attic to show me records and stuff and I took it from there. I’m completely self-taught as well. I taught myself how to produce, I taught myself how to write lyrics and I’ve been doing it ever since then. To any young people that want to get into this, I say do it. Do whatever you want because we’re blessed to live in a place where we CAN do whatever we want and I think young people getting into creative industries should just go for it. People are going to tell you that you can’t all the time but you can do it yourself now. You don’t need the backing of anyone else. When I was younger, Scottish rap wasn’t very accepted. People are only starting to come around to it now and I just pushed through that because I enjoy it and people I know enjoy it. There is always going to be someone who likes what you do. You can have a million people tell you that you suck but as long as a couple of people enjoy it I think you’ve won.

Phil - Edinburgh
I’ve been rapping since going into high school. I’ve always liked doing it but to be honest I started off shit. The person who got me to start doing it was my friend Taps, he’s like my big bro. He kind of got me to start rapping and now we’re like a team but we haven’t released much music. We’re working on it. I’m not going to stop doing this because I want to be the greatest of all time. I just want to be able to continue to do music, it’s the only thing I love and if you have a passion for something you’ll be good at it. If you have a passion, you follow it.

Colin – Edinburgh
I got involved in writing years ago, trying to understand what the hell was going on in my head and my life and it’s developed from strength to strength. From going to open mic nights and waiting for your name to be called and being too nervous to do it, wanting to bolt out of there, to now actually being at Rappers v Poets event, that’s taken years of just working away and developing my confidence. It’s great on stage because you think “can I do this?” and then when you’re performing there’s a rapport with the crowd and you start to realise this isn’t entirely my own delusion. People are responding and they get it. What I’m saying, I believe in it and people feel that and they understand to some extent. It makes you think “I CAN actually do this” because there’s an energy there that works. It’s worth pursuing.

Jenny – Edinburgh
I started as a singer-songwriter about 15 years ago and then someone nicked my electric piano so I started performing my lyrics in said. In my first 6 months of performing I supported The Libertines and performed at Glastonbury, so that was quite a big start and obviously spoken word not being the world’s most lucrative art form there have definitely been some ups and downs since then. I don’t know what it is that inspires me to do spoken word but I just can’t NOT do it. I really enjoy it. I like to have a conversation with a live audience. It’s all about the live audience for me.
