Welcome to David Armitage Photography


I hope you enjoy my collection of photographs and I hope that you will follow my progress as I trace Yorkshire’s rivers, from their beginnings  high in the Yorkshire Pennines, on their journey through the countryside and villages of the Yorkshire Dales and on into the North Sea.  

I regularly add images to the galleries so please check  frequently for updates.

My interest in photography spans more than 30 years and was greatly inspired by the photographs in ‘James Herriot’s Yorkshire’ taken by photographer Derry Brabbs. I also admire the work of the Victorian photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.

I use an Olympus E5  camera  with lenses ranging from 12mm to 200mm (24mm to 400mm in 35mm terms). I invariably  use  a tripod and carry a series of Lee graduated ND filters and a polarizing filter.
