Why buy from us?

Highluxphoto have been a trusted supplier of editorial and advertising photography for over a decade.

Our collection is a no nonsense library of high quality images, featuring original compositions from some of New Zealand's most special locations. There's no cheese, no blown highlights or over processing. Every pixel – well, nearly – of these images is reviewed to make sure you get sharp, clean, noise free images that reproduce well for both print and web.

Easy digital downloads

Choose your image, click 'Buy Photo', choose more images if required, checkout and download – easy as!

Every single stock and gallery image is available as a digital download (in JPEG format) or as a print order.

You can choose the resolution for your intended purpose, whether it's for use on social media, a kitchen splash back or a large format print. Our lo-res (1MP) files are perfect for social media campaigns.

Just ask us if you're not sure which size you need for your project.

Two pricing tiers

Our images are split between two collections and pricing tiers: Premium and Standard. Panorama images are included in the Premium image pricing tier.

One time payment at checkout via credit card or Paypal, with no strings attached. The image is then licensed non-exclusively,  to the licensee for perpetuity, for whatever formats they choose (print or web).

• Prices listed are in New Zealand Dollars.

Personal or Commercial License?

You can read the full details of our licenses below, but in a nut shell: if you are using the photograph for yourself or your family members as a print, desktop image or screensaver and not to seek profit in any way, then the personal license is for you.

If you are a business entity or sole trader and you intend to use the photograph for any commercial purpose, be it direct profit, promotion or marketing then you require a commercial license. Examples might include: commercial website, social media promotions, print advertising, billboards and interior displays. Editorial use for web or print (books and magazines) is also covered by the commercial license.

Which Digital Download Size?

We have three sizes available for download:

Lo-Res (1 megapixel) 

This is our smallest and cheapest size: suitable for social media use and illustrating blog posts as long as the images are not full screen. Not suitable for printing.

Hi-Res (4 megapixel) 

Our middle size covers a lot of bases: you can use this size for full screen images on websites and blogs, or for printing up to 8x10 inch (25.5cm longest side) at 200ppi, or just under A5 at 300ppi.


These are our full size files (between 24-42 megapixels) suitable for printing in a wide range of formats.
