Photography in North Norfolk

North Norfolk is a natural home for photographers, artists and bird watchers.


The wonderful land and seascapes, wildlife, big skies and the gentle lighting of North Norfolk continue to fascinate photographers and artist of all generations.


North Norfolk is a well kept secret. Away from the traditional seaside and market towns, small hamlets and villages nestle in the gently undulating hills often with unusually large churches at their heart.


The beaches vary from steep shale - ideal for beach fishing as at Weybourne, to the vast desert-like expanses of Holkham and Titchwell. You will not believe how few people frequent these, even at week-ends in high summer!


Inland, old woodland mixes with rich but varied farmland creating new vistas at every turn.


Village pubs and specialist restaurants provide a plethora of dining opportunities.

The People of North Norfolk

Norfolk folk make time to talk to you and are known for their wry and kindly sense of humour.


They are extraordinarily welcoming - holiday makers are known as 'grockles' and a significant percentage of the population is made up of 'in-comers'. There is good reason for this - it's a relaxed and beautiful place to live.


I hope some of my photographs reflect this.

October - 2020

This month sees  a third 'Blurb' book published! This one covers various DPG topics and my contributions to them. Printed on premium grade paper in hardback, it has a high quality feel and is a great coffeee table read.

Full details are here: https://www.blurb.co.uk/b/10334723-playgroup-a-journey-through-digital-photography


DPG - 2021

As we begin 2021, meetings are not possible and it is uncertain when they will re-start. So we have devised a programme for the first 6 months, based on members contributing to the Viewing Platform on the chosen subjects.

Full details are here: www.dpg-vp.weebly.com


There are links also to the basic photography course by Chris Bray that we ran last year and other useful contacts and links.


PORTFOLIO develops different themes and ideas - your feedback will be most welcome.

Stories of a devasting fire in Devon, the Wells 'Lifeboat Horse' and a visit to London's 'Winter Wonderland' are the first three. Watch out for more to come . . .

U3A DPG - 2021

Just before the first dreaded Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, we did manage to squeeze in a visit to Fakenham Races. It was Friday the 13th so most of us refrained from gambling, preferring to concentrate on the photo opportunities. Here's mine: Fakenham Races


Since then, we've been restricted to 'virtual' meetings and to this end you can find all that we're getting up to on on our Viewing Platform, www.dpg-vp.weebly.com


I hope you enjoy the experience.
