NEW ZEALAND BEACHES LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
White sandy beaches for miles, New Zealand's coastal landscapes are truly stunning
Having grown up by the beach, and my New Zealand Landscape Photography journey starting right at my hometown coastal playground, this gallery holds a few of my favourite images from my times spent by the sea
I count myself lucky to have had the privilege to grow up with a beautiful beach at my doorstep and for my landscape photography journey to have started in such a stunning setting.
I started by capturing beautiful coastal sunsets as I walked my local beach in Papamoa in the evening just on my iphone.
Watching seagulls fly home, the waves crashing and the last of the golden light hitting the sand .. it was always so magical and made such peaceful photographs. I have since upgraded to many different cameras from those days of strolling the beach with a phone, but I still take the phone with me when I walk just incase I want to capture a New Zealand beach moment.
New Zealand beaches offer a unique and breathtaking backdrop for photography. Crystal-clear waters, pristine sand, and stunning rock formations, making for truly breathtaking images.
The diversity in New Zealand beach landscapes is endless, from rugged black sand beaches, tropical white sandy shores to lush forests, New Zealand offers a diverse range of landscapes that are ideal for beach photography.
When the surf is right the beaches in New Zealand are renowned for their powerful surf, which can create dramatic and visually stunning images.
There is nothing better (imo) than photographing a sunrise or sunset at the beach. Watching the sun rise above the water, or watching it dip below the horizon at sunset, there are so many opportunities to capture some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in the world.
New Zealand's unspoiled beaches means that you always feel like you're one with nature and can really enjoy the beautiful coast while photographing the beaches.
New Zealand's beaches a truly special place for photographers to capture and without them I wouldn't have picked up a camera and starting my landscape photo journey.
