I’m Gavin Hugh,
and welcome to my website
Thanks for stopping by! I’m a Scot who has been fortunate to have had a varied career in television, politics and teaching abroad, and I now run my own video production business.
I was born and raised in Kirkcaldy, Fife, and graduated from the University of Stirling in English and Film studies.
I’m a filmmaker with an interest in writing, photography, cinema, politics, science, literature, videogames, Japan, the Fife coast, and Scotland. I enjoy a good debate and am a strong advocate for critical thinking, rationalism, and science education.
After returning to Scotland, I worked in broadcasting as a Video Journalist for STV, and was involved with the local TV initiatives STV Edinburgh and STV Glasgow. From 2016 to 2020, I worked at the Scottish Parliament as a press officer and caseworker for three MSPs, most recently Shona Robison MSP.
In 2017, I established my own video production business called MidgieBite Media. It’s always been a dream of mine to run my own business, and it’s been immensely rewarding to do so.
Two sub-brands of this business have also been launched: White Rose of Scotland Wedding Films and the Creative Film Fife Network. The latter of these is a film networking group aimed at promoting local filmmakers in Fife.
My politics are moderate / centrist, and I describe myself as a liberal. In 2014, I campaigned in the campaign for Scottish Independence.
In 2019, I was named one of the 100 Fifers of the Year by the local Fife Free Press newspaper. It was quite a humbling acknowledgement and a motivation to keep doing what I do.
This website is a space for me to share my photography, my films, and my thoughts. It would be great to hear from you, so please feel free to get in touch.
