Editorial, documentary, and travel images from New Zealand.
All the images on this website, and more, are available for licence on a non-exclusive, royalty free basis through Picfair, a photo library in England. The Picfair team has streamlined the buying process by offering a plain English, simplified and short, licence agreement. Please read this carefully to understand what you can - and can't - do with the images. You will have access to the full file (no stepped sizes and price points) for one flat fee - some for as little as £6, and none more than £24.
Please note - "royalty free" does not mean "free". International copyright laws apply.

Editorial v. Commercial

You will see that many of my image captions at Picfair include the words "Editorial use only". This means they show recognizable people, trademarks, or property that require model or property releases (signed permissions) before they can be used commercially, for advertising etc. If the images are marked for editorial use, no releases are available and you cannot use them commercially. Consult the helpful people at Picfair directly if you're unsure about this important point.

A work in progress

The content of this site will expand and change at irregular intervals, so please call back again.

A sense of proportion

New Zealand has a land area slightly larger than the British Isles. It would take more than one lifetime to record every corner of the country and every aspect of life. These images are my contribution to a much bigger picture. I hope you find what you're looking for.
