Supporting New Zealand Photographers

PhotoSales NZ – Supporting New Zealand Photographers

Since PhotoSales NZ Ltd ( was launched May 2007, the business has seen significant growth over that time. In December 2007, the team were happy at reaching a total of 100 New Zealand Photographers on their site, and now coming up PhotoSales 1st birthday, they are about to surpass the 400 mark.

Steve Amstad says “Each day now the site is developing further, with more and more photographers joining and coming on-board”

The business will be doing all the photography for this years School Stage Show Challenge, which is starting in May – and covering most areas round New Zealand, the team at PhotoSales is rushed of their feet trying to fill the positions round the country.

The online database of photos has grown from 4000 back in December 2007 to now well over 10,000 images online. Events such as Warbirds over Wanaka attract a large crowd, and also a lot of interest from the photos taken there, with there now being about 2000 just from that event online now.

PhotoSales has also branched out, opening new sites in Australia, United Kingdom and USA – all targeted towards those specific countries, with PhotoSales doing all the printing here in New Zealand.
