My name is Dave Zdanowicz. I was born and bred in the northern town of Bradford in West Yorkshire. I am very lucky to have some amazing locations, view points and destinations right on my doorstep.
Photography is one of the biggest interests in my life. I try to fit it around my full time job (in a secondary school) and my family. I have two children, so it takes extra dedication to set my alarm for 3.00am to try and capture those special moments.
The majority of my work is based in Yorkshire. I truly think it is the most wonderful and diverse county in England. There is something for everyone. Cities, villages, parks, moors, woodlands and a coastal line that is second to none. I have taken over 50,000 photographs of the county and I still have areas to explore.
I am very proud to have released four books through Amberley Publishing. ‘Yorkshire Revealed’ and ‘Bradford in Photographs’ are the titles of my two latest books.
I am a brand ambassador for Hoya Filters, Tokina Lens, Vanguard Photo, Lume Cube and Tog24. These companies have given me the confidence to continue my photographic journey.
I am now proud to be part of the ‘We LOVE England’ family. I hope some of my photographs inspire you to visit some of the brilliant locations the country has to offer.
