Peter Latham NZ fine art photographer  

Peter Latham

New Zealand fine art landscape photography


For me, photography is an all-consuming passionate expression of what I see. For as long as I can remember, I have invested fortunes into camera equipment & I long dreamt of being a landscape photographer. Back in the late 80’s I worked in a camera store in Auckland & read every photo magazine cover to cover, extracting as much inspiration as I could, then snapped away with my Canon T70 (which was quite flash at the time!) Mobile phones were portable bricks & who had heard of Apple, wasn’t that a fruit?. Earlier on in my career I spent many years travelling the world as a photographer aboard cruise ships, returning home to Auckland in 2003, when I began experimenting with a large format printer & printing onto canvas. After much trial & error, I focused my attention towards iconic images of NZ & began to establish relationships with prominent art galleries. 10 years ago, many people were reluctant to appreciate photography as "art", so I experimented with different digital techniques to try & overcome this. Times have changed & we are now catching up with the rest of the world where fine art photography is coveted.
