The Beginnings of a Great New Zealand Landscape Photographer

A New Zealand Landscape Photographer Story

My creativity is a passion that is true to my spirit, and it has influenced me from an early age.

My connection with the landscape started at an early age. When I was a young boy, my brothers and I would spend every minute we had exploring the landscape around our home. Every day, we created new ways to relive our adventures; whether it was exploring somewhere new or building makeshift bush huts, our adventures were creative. My creativity is a passion that is true to my spirit, and it has influenced me from an early age, through my education and into my adult life. My passion for exploration is the ember burning in my heart, and I always look forward to starting a new adventure.

My creativity turned to photography in 2012 when I picked up my first camera whilst I was at university in the UK. As a confident self-learner, I quickly found ways to improve my photography. My camera has been with me on every adventure since 2012. My photography has taken me on a creative journey. It has been a journey that has taken me on many adventures to wonderful places. Over the last ten years, I have crafted my mind's eye into something unique to me, and I feel very fortunate that I have my camera to share how I see the landscape with you.

In 2013, my family became New Zealand residents, and in 2020 we became proud citizens. New Zealand is a beautifully diverse country, and I love exploring it with my camera. It is a photographer's dream, which makes it challenging because there are many photographers in New Zealand. When I explore the landscape, my mind's eye will abstract the landscape, and I use my camera to create a piece of art. My art captures recognisable landscapes in a surreal way.

The craft of New Zealand photographer Stephen Milner

An artist with a unique creative vision

I aim to become a New Zealand Photographer with a difference. Since 2012, my mind's eye has grown creatively into creating visionary photography, which is the art of using a camera to create collections of photos that have a common theme and tell a story. It is more than simply recording the landscape. I empower my images by using familiar forms and tones that add atmosphere to my prints.

I am passionate about creating fine art landscape photography prints that will inspire, excite, uplift and calm you wherever you choose to display my work. My landscape photograph prints add atmosphere to the spaces they are displayed. I use professional high-quality medium format cameras to capture fine landscape photography photos. My prints are exquisitely handcrafted using the best archival grade materials, tools and techniques.
