My name is Dan Baillie I grew up in Southend on Sea in Essex, but later left the bright lights of the city to live in the wilds of Wigtownshire in south west Scotland. I live in with my wife, two boys and three dogs and I discovered Flickr on 31 July 2008.

I first became interested in Photography when my Dad gave me a 35mm SLR (Praktica MTL5B) for my fourteenth birthday. I later upgraded to Canon EOS 5 bodies and lenses. With the digital revolution I switched to Nikon and have rarely looked back. Twenty two years later, I run my own photography business, Baillie Photography.

I own and run a busy portrait and wedding studio in Kirkcowan. I currently use a range of Nikon DSLRs. I protect my copyright so whilst I hope that you enjoy my pictures, if you would like to use any please contact me.

    "Dan’s photostream is full of life and colors. He has a keen eye where he can capture a well thought out and exceptionally executed landscape and then jump right into the candid street shots of Scottish life. The variety of subjects in his stream is appealing as is the way he processes them. Dan’s classic shots are nothing less than textbook quality, but he also has the talent to add that extra bit of visual eye candy with his processing skills. To top it off, he is an animal lover and that makes him a-okay in my book."

    "The Puddock a.k.a Dan has the most incredible eye for composition and detail. I adore his work and rate him as one of the most naturally talented photographers I have seen on Flickr. I look forwards to seeing more and more of his work."

    "Dan is a favorite among favorites for me here on Flickr. Originally his Flickr name "The Puddock" caught my attention (I've just learned that it's Scots for "frog," which makes me smile -- I also found this poem called "The Puddock" at www.rampantscotla... ).

    Dan is nothing at all like the puddock in this poem. Well, perhaps he's got a right to be proud and big-headed like the puddock, because he is excellent at photography and at matching words and verses to his shots -- but, to the contrary, he doesn't gloat about it in the least. He is a humble artist who lets his art speak for itself. To me, that is the best kind of artist.

    He's also a fine friend who isn't afraid to dispense good advice in an encouraging way, in order to help others improve their skills as photographers. Dan's honest and real, a photographer and an artist, and I feel fortunate to be able to see what he sees."
