Unlike anything else on offer in Queenstown, The Commissioned Experience is a rare opportunity to accompany the artist at work. Join Stephan Romer on a private heli-photography expedition, scouting the scenery of the South Island for what will become your very own Stephan Romer commissioned piece. Art and adventure combine and you will leave with more than a memory.
No ordinary scenic flight, this is a photographic expedition by helicopter over the vast and varied landscapes of the South Island. Designed exclusively for you, and with the expertise of your Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopter pilot and Stephan Romer by your side, you decide where to point the lens. Choose one of the many iconic locations of the Southern Alps: glaciers, valleys, New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki/Mt Cook or the UNESCO World-Heritage-listed Fiordland National Park. All are nature’s masterpieces.
Immerse yourself in the creative process and see how Stephan captures his award-winning artwork using a large-format camera system that delivers three times the resolution achieved in most professional setups. When you come back down to land, we get to work on producing your artwork. Your commissioned piece is printed and finished at one of the world’s leading print laboratories in Germany and shipped to you wherever you are in the world approximately four to six weeks later.
A helicopter expedition with Stephan Romer and Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters, including return private transfers and your printed and finished Stephan Romer original artwork.
Your flight time depends on the location of the shoot. Along the way, explore the geography and geology of the area, best appreciated from above. Enjoy the opportunity to see an award-winning artist at work.
Choose to add a bottle of celebratory champagne, a picnic lunch, a glacier landing or videography to your experience. The Commissioned Experience is built to suit your requirements and preferred location.
After the Experience, the Romer Gallery team will discuss finishing options – which include framed, perspex or lightbox. Your final piece arrives 4-6 weeks later. Pricing includes printing, finishing, airfreight, taxes and duty.
