Zeaside.Kiwi also features some photo or media stock from other parts of the world, predominantly landscape, nature and urban. These are listed in the OFF-TRACK section, to be found in the main menu.

Zeaside.Kiwi is interested in exchange with like-minded (NZ) forest photographers. If you want your images included in or linked to from this website, please get in touch with me.

Welcome to zeaside.kiwi, a small stock-photo collection with an emphasis on featuring images and some field recordings of New Zealand´s unique native forests.

My name is Zeb, I am a Berlin based occasional photographer with an affinity to the New Zealand Outdoors and I have trekked many of the lesser known paths through smaller patches and pockets of native forest remainders, specifically in the North Island. Those are mostly isolated miniature forest islands, endangered by ever encroaching damaging farming practices, aggressive clear cut methods in immediately adjacent Pine plantations, by climate change, droughts and freak weather events, by mass tourism, roads, traffic and light pollution. Yet, they demonstrate what has been lost and what could still be regained. 

This is a personal collection of images for a global audience.

The collection aims to bolster conservation efforts in benefit of New Zealand´s diverse native forest remainders. Zeaside.Kiwi extends the sounds & sights of Aotearoa´s forests into the World Wide Web, thus educating the unsuspecting web-surfer and serving as a stock-photo source for editors and researchers.

Thanks for surfing by!   


Thank you so much for your very kind offer to give Forest & Bird a donation each time one of your New Zealand images is sold.

Some images are available as 8 Bit TIFF in AdobeAGB instantly from the server.
