Bob Zuur


My name is Bob Zuur.  I have been a photographer and a biologist for forty years.

Photography is a way of showing the beauty and vulnerability of our planet.  People are a key part of the environment in which we live. It is a privilege to record important life events of people, businesses and communities.

As a member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography I am bound by the NZIPP Code of Ethics, and work at all times to the highest standards.

I am based in Wellington and live on the Kapiti Coast, so I call the lower North Island home.  I can, of course, travel further if needed.

What makes my photography different to many others’?

  • Wide skill base: artistic and technical competence in a wide range of photography
  • Natural style: light, airy and not over-processed
  • Discrete: ability to capture the moment unobtrusively
  • Understand your needs through professional experience in
    • wildlife, freshwater, marine, land and Antarctic conservation;
    • the agricultural, fishing and forestry sectors;
    • local and central government
  • Spontaneous: quick turnaround of images.
