Julian Baird

I'm a landscape photographer from Devon and I have a real passion for being outdoors.  That love for the outdoors took root as a child growing up in the highlands of Scotland, surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.  However, it wasn't until I got my first digital camera 15 years ago that I really started to appreciate how amazing the landscape around me was.  It was at this point that my passion for landscape photography really started.

These days you'll find me wandering Dartmoor or exploring the Cornish coast, or occasionally I'll be back in the homeland walking in the highlands of Scotland.  As you might imagine I often see some of the most dramatic landscapes in the UK and I am driven to photograph them.  That drive often means very early mornings or long days, but armed with a camera, a flask of coffee and a real sense of adventure there is no other place I would rather be.  My passion for these locations is at the heart of my landscape photography.

My passion for landscape photography also extends past the shutter button and there is nothing I like better than making a print.  For me, making a print is just a natural part of the photography process and I don't consider my work complete until I have hit the print button!  I'm also passionate about inspiring other photographers so I regularly share my stories and adventures on my popular landscape photography blog and YouTube channel.
