Yorkshire Photo Explorer


Yorkshire photography locations

Yorkshire has a fantastic array of places to photograph, from the Dales, the moors, big cities and the coast. When I bought my first DSLR camera, I wanted to get out there, explore and try to take some great photos. However I had no real idea of where to start. What are the best Yorkshire photography locations? Where is a good place to go at sunset? Where can I see wildlife? What city locations make interesting subjects? I’d seen many amazing photos of beautiful places around the county, but needed some inspiration to get me going.

About this blog

I created the Yorkshire Photo Explorer blog as a way of encouraging me to get out and see a bit more of Yorkshire and try to take some interesting (and hopefully occasionally good) photos along the way. I’m not a professional photographer, and class myself very much as an amateur. This blog is therefore not about how to take photos, it is about getting out and just having fun taking photographs whilst exploring this amazing county.

Many of the locations I aim to visit will be the classic tourist hotspots, which have been photographed many times before. However for me, it may be the first time. I also hope to seek out some lesser known places. I wanted to share my photos and where I took them for other people like me who want to try to take some great photos, but want inspiration for where to go (whether you are a Yorkshire resident or visitor)!

I’m still very much learning, both about photography and places to visit. I welcome suggestions of where to go in Yorkshire for photography, so please contact me if you have any ideas.

About me

My name is Su and I live in Leeds. I love travel, exploring new places and attempting to take photos that are in focus. I’m pretty good at the first two and slowly improving on the third. Travel and photography have always been two of my favourite things, but I’ve only really started doing more photography in the last three years. My first love is wildlife photography, but I like to try all styles.
