Purchasing photographs

How to licence photos

My images can be licenced for many publication types, including advertising and editorial brochures, magazines, posters and reports. Licence fees depend on the intended use and are tailored to suit the required terms of use at a reasonable price. So that I can provide an accurate quote, please supply at least the following information:

Images are usually supplied as LZW compressed TIFF files or high quality JPEGs. Files can be sent by email, FTP, or CD/DVD depending on size. If you need something else or have specific preferences, just ask, I can probably do it.

To assist the crucial work done by our chronically underfunded Department of Conservation I'm happy to offer a discount off standard fees for DOC projects (information panels, brouchers, etc.).

Images are not available for royalty-free use, and please note that requests for free use will only result in disappointment.

Purchasing premium nature photo prints

Most of the images displayed on this site are available as fine art photo prints for display in your home or office. Prints are produced to order from high resolution digital files using a LightJet printer. The LightJet uses laser light to expose archival photographic paper, producing a print of fantastic quality that will last. These are continuous-tone, real photographic prints and set the standard for photo reproduction.

Prices for common print sizes (without mats or frames):

Print SizePrice
20 x 30 cm (8 x 12")$135
30 x 45 cm (12 x 18")$180

Each photographic print is titled, signed if requested, and has a white border for ease of handling and framing.

The exact size of the image on the paper may vary depending on the image proportions. Prints usually take around one week to be processed. If you are working to a deadline or have specific size requirements (e.g. to fit a specific frame or wall space) please let me know.

I can also have my photos printed onto a variety of other materials, such as canvas. If you would like a beautiful photo of New Zealand please enquire for options and prices.

Prices are in New Zealand dollars and include GST and delivery within New Zealand. Please contact me for a price for orders outside New Zealand, or if you have any other queries.

I think you will be very pleased with the quality of your print purchase, however, if you are not completely satisfied you are welcome to return the intact photograph for a refund.

Ordering and Payment

To order photographic prints and licencing simply email me with the appropriate details. You will receive an email confirming the purchase price and providing complete details on how to make your payment.

Payment is accepted by direct credit, New Zealand cheque, or by credit card via PayPal.
