Sam writes: having graduated in 2013 with a Masters degree in journalism from Edinburgh Napier University. My undergraduate degree is an MA (hons) in English Literature and Language from Glasgow/Aberdeen University.
Work experience and voluntary work undertaken has been at The Scotsman, Deadline News Agency, Scottish Field, East Lothian Courier, Leith TV, Castle FM as well as the Edinburgh Reporter.
Prior to MA freelance work at Guardian, and Creator of First News. This was in 2005-06 when I contacted the NUJ due to payments issues- since we moved to Paris have worked on their newsletter as editor.
I have since then been in paid employment in freelance work with various outlets, among these are Artwork Magazine, Scottish Field, East Lothian Courier, Deadline News and Edinburgh Evening News, the latter two where I have also done shifts.
We have also taken on film commissions, at the Chippendale School of Furniture and Art film in Paris.
This website incorporates most of the news, arts features, on-line, and film work as well as photographs, radio and TV work that we have had included in various publications. These include work undertaken on the MA, (including from Edinburgh Napier News and Buzz Magazine).
Other articles are from work experience and paid work since, more recent freelance work.
Although I cover varied topics, such as news and arts, my area of interest lies chiefly in campaign issues, human rights issues and investigative journalism on which topics Gavin and I have set up a news site with Charlotte Bjuren- at Stirling University. This is titled:- http//www.investigativejournalismscotland.com
