There's no doubt that Norfolk offers many opportunities for some stunning photography - seascapes, landscapes, architecture, skies, flora and fauna - and so the list of photography subjects goes on.
We've included some information below on where to go to take some of the iconic photographs of Norfolk.
If you’re happy with the pictures you currently take then read no further, but if you’d like to take advantage of some unique and very special opportunities to further develop your photography skills whilst in Norfolk we've also included information on some very interesting photography courses available in Norfolk.
The Norwich 12
Norwich Cathedral is one of the icons of Norfolk and there are opportunites to photograph its exterior and, for a small fee, to obtain a permit for internal photography. Whilst the Cathedral Close offers some of the best views, there are other viewpoints in Norwich that offer interesting photographic angles.
Holkham beach is mentioned elsewhere on this website. Park at either Wells or on Queen Anne’s Drive near Holkham Hall. The beach is privately owned so commercial photography requires pre-arranged consent.
Banham Zoo is laid out so that, with even a fairly modest telephoto lens, some pretty impressive photographs can be taken, including some of big cats.
The striking red and white bands of Happisburgh (pronouned haze-brugh) Lighthouse will be a familiar sight to many. It can be seen from miles around from land, as well as from the sea.
Horsey Windpump is owned by the National Trust. It is situated on Horsey Staithe, which is open to the public all year round.
Cromer Pier is perhaps best photographed towards the end of the day as the setting sun provides a lovely background. If you have a neutral density filter or two here’s a chance to get some interesting images of the sea with Cromer Pier as the backdrop.
Some of the lesser used broads, such as Ranworth Broad (park at Ranworth Staithe), which is owned by Norfolk Naturalists Trust and closed to craft, offer some interesting light, especially at the beginning and end of the day.
