AWARD-WINNING Scottish photographer and hillwalker Paul Brett is about to launch a new collector’s item magazine with the help of his adventurous Instagram social media friends.

He will publish the first edition of the quarterly ‘Proper Adventure — The Journal’ on June 1, featuring people from Scotland and all over the world living the dream doing what they love, with some amazing adventure, travel and outdoor photography.

Brett said: “The whole idea is to inspire people and we want to emphasise this is about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We aim to proudly retain our Scottish heritage so each issue will always feature Scottish people.

“I came up with the idea of a magazine featuring all the interesting stories from people I already knew from Instagram and other social media. The core of the magazine is retaining the Scottish vibe and the whole aim is to try and inspire people to see what other folk are doing and maybe make them think they could give it a go. We’ve got a guy who does wild swimming up on the Isle of Skye and a Scot touring New Zealand in a camper van. There are also some amazing shots.”
