John is an international award winning photographer based in the Highlands of Scotland. The topic of the talk will be ‘Diversify’ which reflects John’s approach to his photography business. He is well known for thinking outside of the box and likes to mix genres of photography which include his approach to fine art Weddings, Commercial, Press and PR photography. Recently he has completed and published a book ‘The Magic of The North Coast 500’ travelling thousands of miles around the Highlands documenting the landscape and much more.

Jonathan Beer FBIPP

Edinburgh College, Sighthill Campus, Lecture Room 715 (7th Floor)

Jonathan is an exceptionally skilled Advertising photographer based in Greater Manchester. His work combines technically controlled lighting and problem solving. His clients include Transport for London, Hasselblad, Royal Mail, Remington and Nicky Clarke to name a few. In his own words, and I could not have put it better “You can't polish a turd" one photographer told me. I beg to differ....My name is Jonathan and I'm perfectly suited to still life photography”.
