"I was so pleased when John agreed to talk about his work for the BIPP Scotland lectures at Edinburgh College. His presentation was excellent, full of motivation, talked openly about working in the industry and demonstrated his many skills in photography. The presentation was about diversity within business which was perfectly illustrated with his portfolio of work”. - Jon Lee - Chairman BIPP Scotland, Course Leader BA Professional Photography.
"John Baikie - The Magic of the North Coast 500 Seminar
I attended the Societies of Photographers 2019 Convention, and this was my favourite talk.
Firstly, the photos showcased in this stunning book are incredibly beautiful. Secondly John's talk about how he went about capturing the images, and how he crowd funded the project was wholly inspiring. John is a friendly, knowledgeable teacher, and a master photographer. As a wedding photographer myself I can testify to the excellence of his work, and I would recommend him as a photographer and a teacher without hesitation." Matt Bolton
I really enjoy sharing my work and motivational message with others. If you want a speaker for your club or organisation, or for an event, please get in touch to find out more. I am equally happy doing platform presentations or hands on demonstrations of photography techniques and skills. I am a passionate speaker who is brutally honest. No smoke and mirrors, just the truth about what you need to know in photography, or indeed any other business. Prices on request.
