Why are some of the images on Places New Zealand blurry?

Some images are supplied to us in very low resolution, we have decided that a reference image of a place even if the quality is poor, is better than no reference at all.

What is the core driver behind Places New Zealand that would make you spend 1000’s of hrs of your time and the give it away for free?

Passion for life in New Zealand, our kids, and others.

How is Places New Zealand Funded?

Places New Zealand is mostly funded by passion and for the necessary expenses the kids pocket money, they really aren’t too happy about this, although they are enjoying the trade-off of visiting many playgrounds, beaches and skateparks, that trick can only last so long.

Local support and sponsorship are huge, so thank you, local supporters, we can now carry on with our mission. ‘Shameless’ plug here for any more sponsors that share the same values as our mission, let’s talk. 

You also can purchase a Personal, or Business license to Places New Zealand’s Media library to use in all sorts of ways. Find out more here** **and see how this helps others enjoy Places and Activities around New Zealand.

Can I help support this mission?

Is New Zealand’s grass green... absolutely… Please, let’s talk, contact us here.
