Landscape photography is an amazing way of getting out into the great outdoors, keeping fit and helping your camera skills stay sharp. Coastal photography, also called seascapes, is brilliant sub-genre of landscape photography. If you can get to the coast you'll be rewarded with sandy beaches, crashing waves, bold sea defences, striking piers, lighthouses and much more.

Coastal photography can be a bit trickier than might first seem, and that's why this month we teamed up with a reader of PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine, Dave Curley, for a seascapes masterclass with Canon pro Andrew James around the UK's picturesque Norfolk coastline..
