About Kevin Bowie
As a fine art landscape photographer I am drawn to the New Zealand landscape and especially the Mackenzie Country where I live. The immense diversity, together with the fleeting tandem of weather and light inspires me. To experience New Zealand’s highest mountains, vast tussock plains and glacial blue lakes leaves you with a sense of awe and adventure.
Through my work I try to convey the beauty and emotion within the landscape and confront the challenges it presents. The consistent feature is detail of beautiful complexity. Whether seeking to creatively interpret a subject, capturing fleeting moments or revealing the moods of the New Zealand landscape, I love it all… this is my passion.
A beautiful landscape can make us stop, make us quiet and make us reflect… on everything. Kevin Bowie
Eunoia Limited Edition Prints
Eunoia is a Greek word meaning “beautiful thinking”. I believe there is a thought process as a fine art photographer which precedes the visual reality in creating an image and Eunoia describes perfectly my approach to art photography.
The concept is not merely to see an image, but to craft an image that reflects the creative process, emotional content and visual design. In a world of visual and emotional clutter, I want to take a simple but thought-provoking approach.
Eunoia Limited Edition prints reflect a higher level of content, craft and value. I want my images to be enjoyed by you, perhaps remind you of a time, a place or a feeling of connection and bring into your life something beautiful and inspiring.
I want you to share Eunoia – beautiful thinking.

- Photography is an excuse to loiter in beautiful places.
- Nothing inspires me more than people who live their dreams.
