Steve Docwra

Steve Docwra was born in 1969 in the seaside holiday town of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. During his early teens, his Summer holidays would be spent either working in the family rock shop or fishing on the Norfolk Broads. This is where his love of the beautiful scenery in Norfolk and Suffolk began.

As Steve grew older, his love of fishing became a real passion and as a result of becoming a proficient match angler, he found that he needed to travel all over the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. However with a growing family, Steve could no longer dedicate long weekends to match fishing, so he started going out with his camera instead - it was a natural step for Steve to photograph the landscapes he knew and loved so well.

Steve says, "Our dramatic coastline is always a pleasure to photograph. I love to visit when the morning and evening light transforms the scene into that magical moment. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of isolation and wonderment from being in a beautiful and remote location, when most sensible people are still tucked up asleep. The Norfolk and Suffolk countryside and Broads are also such an inspiration, every season has something new to offer".

Steve's first real taste of photography came when he purchased a Canon 400D DSLR in 2008, which he used to capture pictures of his family growing up. Later, Steve turned his attentions to his surrounding countryside and coastline. Steve upgraded his ageing camera in 2013 and purchased a 36.3 Megapixel Nikon D800. In the past 18 months he has sold images to Yahoo Inc, The Times, The Mail Online, Archant and Morrisons.

Steve currently works for the publishing group "Archant" as the pre-Press colour specialist, and is a married father of two teenage boys.
