Welcome to Harley Betts Photography. I am an outdoor photographer whose work is inspired by New Zealand's spectacular natural landscape, and here you can view a selection of high-quality works that are available for purchase as Fine Art Prints.

My aim is to make only the very best photographs available for sale. The images presented on this web site are carefully chosen from my collection of photographs that I have built up over several years and many thousands of kilometres of travel throughout New Zealand.

The focus of this web site is mainly on New Zealand natural images. An additional category, Antarctica, is also offered, which presents some of my images from the wild and remote Southern Ocean and Ross Sea regions that lie south of New Zealand.

This web site was launched in May 2004, and will grow steadily over time as I continue to add to my photographic collection. Feedback is most welcome.

I trust you will enjoy your visit here.
