Whitby is an ancient sea port close to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. It also has to be one of the best places in the country for photographers. Many DPC students have visited Whitby and I never cease to be amazed at the variety of images they submit.

Sandsend, 2 miles north of Whitby. A good starting point for the cliff path northwards. The beach is north-east facing and ideal for winter sunrise. Also good for atmospheric long exposure shots during grey weather, and drama in higher winds.

I favour winter months to avoid the crowds. That way I can photograph without herds of sightseers in my viewfinder. The pier is open 24/7 and is perfect for wide angle lenses.

Whitby is a wonderfully old-fashioned seaside port on the North Yorkshire coast. The pier offers many photographic opportunities, usually best captured at dawn. This location suits long exposures and a minimalist style, so remember your ND filters.

A beautiful location, from the legends of Dracula himself. Extensive ruins, with beautiful preserved architectural details. Lots of other areas of photographic interest nearby, whale bone arch, harbour and 199 steps down from the abbey are all of interest. Nice area of wa

Saltwick Bay was once described to me as "a photographers honeypot" and that is exactly what it is. The Yorkshire coastline is full of interesting bays and coves but this for me is the best.

Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside.
