Pro­file: Space per­fect Louis

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

Louis Buick is a mul­ti­me­dia artist from In­ver­ness who takes up res­i­dency in the new In­ver­ness Cre­ative Academy.

Mr Buick, 26, fa­ther to a six-mon­thold baby pre­vi­ously op­er­ated out of a cup­board in his home, jug­gling work and par­ent­hood.

He said: “I work in a lot of dis­ci­plines from fash­ion to pho­tog­ra­phy.

Meet­ing peo­ple to take pho­tos has been a prob­lem so I’m go­ing to ded­i­cate one area to that and ex­pand what I have been do­ing.

“When I left school I was a DJ and made mu­sic. Back then it wasn’t com­mon­place that you would have a ca­reer in the cre­ative in­dus­tries, whereas in places like Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh that was a pos­si­bil­ity.

“I hope this cen­tre will give more peo­ple hope they can per­fect their craft in the High­lands.

“In terms of the arts and things, In­ver­ness is be­hind the big­ger cities so hope­fully this will pro­pel that.”

The for­mer Mill­burn Academy pupil added: “When you are work­ing from home it’s hard to get that di­vide, es­pe­cially hav­ing a new baby.

“It gives me space where I can bring other cre­atives. The ded­i­cated space al­lows me to come in, switch off from the out­side world and get things done.”
