The North East Coast

Dave ZdanowiczImage, Trips / Locations

I think the beaches and seaside towns in the north east are some of the most beautiful in the UK. We have a mixture of everything from fishing villages, piers, sandy and stoney beaches, lighthouses, Abbeys and everything else in between. The towns are bathed in history and there is something to do for everyone.

The journey to capture most of the seaside towns has been a difficult challenge as I live almost 2 hours away from the nearest one. So it has meant a lot of 3am starts to get over to capture the sunrises. Its always been worth it though and the weather has always been kind to me.
Theres still a few locations I’d love to tick off the list including, withernsea, hornsea and seaham and I hope to capture them this year.
One of the proudest things as a photographer is to showcase the fantastic places we live near. I hope it inspires people to visit some of these destinations ready for the summer holidays.

Here are a few pictures taken at the various coastal towns I have visited.
