Meet Stephan Romer of the Romer Gallery.
There’s a lot to feel inspired by in this part of the world and nobody knows this better than Queenstown artist and gallery owner Stephan Romer.
Originally from Germany, Stephan fell in love with the Southern Lakes and moved here 14 years ago. Already a renowned automotive commercial photographer for brands such as Porsche, Aston Martin and Mercedes Benz, Stephan excelled in creating beautiful landscape
Today, his elegant Queenstown gallery – located at 15 Earl Street – exhibits some of his most stunning photographs. His work also takes pride of place in many homes in NZ and around the world, from the NZSIR offices in Queenstown and Parnell to the palaces of European royalty.
“We want clients to walk into the gallery and be blown away by the power of the pieces on display,” says Stephan.
“The works reflect the raw, natural beauty of a landscape, rather than a picture postcard. This, combined with exceptional printing by one of the leading finishers in Europe, gives the artwork a very threedimensional feel, like looking through a window.”
It’s this unique approach that has enabled Stephan to win the prestigious accolade of “New Zealand’s Landscape Photographer of the Year 2019”.
“There is absolutely no point in creating art unless we are providing perfection.”
