Richard Branson was just sixteen when he started his first venture into publishing, as was Lord Sugar when he started trading goods out of the back of a van.
Nowadays there aren’t many teenagers willing to start up their own businesses, (unless you delve into cyber-space), but that is exactly what seventeen year-old Conor Ross from Dyce has done with Conor Ross Media.
Conor has always had a passion for photography and inherited his interest from his Grandfather. After entering and winning the Chevron Focus Environment Competition in 2013 at the age of thirteen, Conor decided to seriously study photography at school.
He left Dyce Academy in 2015 and then attended the North East Scotland College where he has just completed a Computer and Arts Animation course.
Conor said: “I have always had a passion for success and obviously videography, After trying many places for jobs and getting nothing back, I thought I would give it ago myself.”
“I was asked to do a promotional video for The Newmachar Hotel and after that it’s been word of mouth.”
“I’m mostly doing videography, but I’ve been commissioned to do some photos this week at Dyce Academy. I’m hoping people will take a chance on me.”
