The world may seem increasingly crowded, but Harrison Brown is growing a global following by documenting places that make humans seem small, and the skies feel big: from his Scottish homelands to far-flung corners of East Asia. "I want to trigger an emotion," says the photographer-turned-videographer, who has more than 91,500 TikTok followers and several thousand YouTube subscribers.
Travelling the world may seem glamorous, but for Harrison, it all started with documenting what was on his doorstep in Scotland. "I tried to inspire people to get out and about," he says. That's where he initially found success, and through the years, and by working with brands, his roving has expanded.
"Last year I spent about eight months travelling, and then the rest of the time in the UK editing," says Harrison.
Travelling the world, creating content and making a living from it is a dream for many people, but it hasn't been an easy or conventional path for Harrison. "I applied to study videography and photography at five different universities and didn't get in," he says. "So I taught myself. I was heavily into photos, then realised I had more of an interest in video."
