When a street style photographer points their camera lens at you know you've done something right. Every week the Evening Times captures some of the best looks in Glasgow with Style on the Street.
So when legendary style snapper Wayne Tippetts, who has photographed top models, came to the city in a quest to find the most stylish people, RACHEL LOXTON caught up with him to find out what he thinks of Glasgow style.
STYLE hunter Wayne Tippetts is perching on the edge of a pavement in the city's West End trying to get a good shot.
He is photographing fashion designer Jenn Celine Coyle, 27, and her friend's dog Rora, who she was walking when Wayne asked them to pose. Jenn caught his eye because of her "glitzy glam" urban look but most of all it was her individuality that Wayne wanted to capture on camera.
"What I'm looking for is someone with an individual look, something you can't recreate," he says while directing Jenn into position outside Hillhead Book Club.
"She's got an urban glitzy glam look mixed into one. And the dog looks lovely with the pink collar.
"It would be hard to copy that look. There are some fabulous elements in it."
Jenn, who is one half of design duo Obscure Couture, is not wearing any designer clothes. Her River Island jeans cost £35, while her Primark necklace cost just £6.
The most expensive part of her outfit are her high tops, which cost £85 from Office.
But this look has not come from a glossy magazine and this is what Wayne says is so exciting about it.
"I've noticed that there are some very smartly dressed people here. There's a good encouraging culture of vintage going on as well.
"People are mixing up their vintage with high street brands and stuff that they've found or made themselves."
Wayne says his love of street photography began in the 1980s when he would wander around Camden Town, London, documenting street life. He launched his blog Street Style Aesthetic four years ago and has since taken photos of thousands of people, including models Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn.
He says: "I wanted to bring my voice to it. I understand the story and fashion is all about the narrative."
Wayne is visiting UK towns and cities to take photos of stylish people as part of Catwalk Britain, a new campaign by TK Maxx. The retail giant is compiling an online resource of British style that will let users search and select hundreds of looks and trends as they emerge.
As well as shops, fashion editors and designers now look to street style for inspiration.
Photographer Jonathan Pryce, whose blog Les Garcons de Glasgow receives thousands of hits a day, said: "Street style is the most raw and visceral experience of clothing design. It's about real people in real situations."
Jonathan puts the phenomenon of street style down to technology, too.
He said: "Street style has been documented since the invention of the camera, but with the explosion of digital technology and social media the style-loving public have gone wild for inspiring looks on the street."
The snapper, originally from Kilmacolm, Renfrewshire, said Glasgow is a prime place to shoot style.
He said: "Glasgow has no pretensions. The people have fun and aren't led by what London is doing which is really refreshing.
"More so than any other UK city, the people of Glasgow dance to their own beat."
