Lakeview Image Library may have just what you're looking for
For three decades now, the Lakeview Image Library has been a source of quality imagery showcasing the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, as well other parts of the world where we travel regularly, particularly India and Australia. Our collection has a reputation for clean, crisp composition and classic themes that surpass the test of time. We use high quality gear to ensure that our client has a high definition image worthy of its end use. It’s always great to recognise our images in books, advertisements, magazines and even museum displays around the world.
We typically shoot with the end user in mind, aiming to capture the right moment for your travel brochure, advertisement or illustration. With a background in newspapers, advertising and web design, we know the kinds of images that suit, and the budgets that can constrain a project. This site offers you access to affordable imagery as well as high-end exclusive photos and illustrations available under a rights-managed license to give you the assurance that your special image will not appear in the opposition’s ad as well.
Regarded as one of the wildest natural areas in New Zealand, the West Coast is a superb background for any outdoor work. The snow-capped Southern Alps create the eastern boundary for a long strip of territory graced by beautiful rivers, temperate rainforest and glaciers.
Home base for the Lakeview Image Library is nestled at the foot of the Southern Alps. We have instant access to snow-fed rivers, lakes and native bush on all sides.
Construction and mining images feature strongly in the Lakeview portfolios. You’ll find editorial and model released images related to manufacturing, midwifery, mining for coal and gold, oil exploration, and the aviation and hospitality industries.
We’re not interested in a made-up model posed on the construction site, but the tradies who know their stuff and get on with the job while we get on with ours. Very few of these images are posed. We aim to capture work as it really is – sometimes a bit grubby but always necessary to keeping things maintained and moving along.
With several stunning national parks within easy driving distance, the West Coast provides a great advantage for nature photography, as well as some fascinating industries. Friendly locals have given us access to sites that wouldnâ’t normally be available to photographers. Other features of our portfolios include hunting images and historical and archival images covering a wide range of events and personalities.
The stock agencies that showcase our work can provide images with Royalty Free licenses or Rights Managed licenses. Shop around and find out what suits your project and your budget.
