I have been carefully selecting my photographs of unique New Zealand landscapes to be available as collectable, archival fine art prints in Limited Editions.
These photographs are available in Limited Editions of 50, 25, 10, 4, 2 and 1 print only.
With my heart set in the wilderness of the Glacier Country on the West Coast of the Southern Alps, right on the border of Westland Tai Poutini National Park - UNESCO World Heritage Area, the main focus of my photographs is on the wild and pristine landscapes of the South Island.
From capture, through processing to printing, each print is individually made by myself with the state-of-the-art digital pigmented inkjet printing technology in my gallery/studio, using Epson Stylus Pro 7900 inkjet printer and Epson archival UltraChrome HDR pigmented inks. This workflow enables me to have complete control over the final print, so only flawless results are achieved and delivered.
All images are printed on one of the best matt fine art, archival paper available today - Canson Infinity BFK Rives 310gsm, with smooth, velvety texture, giving the print a very prestigious aura. While this exceptional 100% cotton based, mould-made paper has no optical brighteners used in its making, it is still achieving whitest whites with deepest blacks among other fine art, matt papers available on the market today. With over 500 years of paper making company’s history, Canson paper makers are one of oldest art paper producers in the world.
I personally number, title, emboss with an authenticating seal and sign each print in pencil on the bottom, white margin of the print. The print is then registered and a signed Certificate of Authenticity is issued. Each print also receives an information sheet with camera technical data of the image capture and a short "behind the scene" story about the making of the photograph.
Prints are made at variety of sizes which I recommend depending on the image file format and size.
Panoramic images are generally made at 100cm (40”) or max of 120cm (47”) on a longer side. The vertical dimension is dictated by the format ratio.
The standard 2:3 frame ratio prints are generally produced at max 75cm x 50cm (30” x 20”).
Our recommended print sizes for individual prints are on the image preview page.
Larger or smaller sizes can be made on request.
Prices of prints in Edition of 50 start at NZ$2,200 with NZ$500 increase after first 10 prints are sold.
Prices of prints in Edition of 25 start at NZ$3,500 with NZ$1,000 increase after first 5 prints are sold.

After receiving your order and making your print, I will confirm the shipping details with you and will proceed with dispatching of your print(s).
Because I personally make my prints and am often in remote locations photographing, please expect 3-5 weeks before receiving your print.
Prints are delivered directly to you or to your framer, rolled securely in a sturdy cardboard tube and are shipped worldwide via New Zealand International Air Mail. The shipping fee includes an insurance.Framed prints can also be shipped worldwide, using safe courier services, specialising in delivering valuable under glass framed artworks.
Despite our best care taken to securely pack your print(s), I cannot eliminate accidents in transfer, therefore, if your print will reach you damaged, please, contact me immediately to arrange the print replacement.
As with every art work, my prints need to be treated with care.
The face of the print in particular is very susceptible to scratching, moisture and fingerprints. Other damaging factors to the print may include fly excrements, smoke, dust and other physical or chemical elements. To avoid any of these damages to the print, I advice framing the print under the glass as soon as possible or store it in an acid free folder in a dry, dark environment.
I use only archival materials for printing of my photographs. These materials have a certain amount of UV light resistance, but I strongly recommend to mount the prints under museum grade, UV light protective glass, to extend lifespan of the print. Each print also receives two coats of the protective print shield, enhancing the prints’ UV light resistance to fading. The combination of the inks and paper used suggests the lightfastness of these prints to be of over 120 years (Wilhelm-Research Imaging); when framed under museum grade, UV protective glass and displayed out of direct sunlight.
I trust, that my photographs will bring a value to you and enhance any room for many decades to come.
Thank you for your investment and we wish you all the pleasures with Petr Hlavacek's Fine Art Prints.
