Edition Size: 100 Signed & Numbered Prints
Location: Mount Taranaki, Taranaki, New Zealand

For the longest time I had wanted to photograph the incredible scene from the mountain tarns overlooking Mt Taranaki, and in autumn 2019 I finally got the opportunity. Getting to this location requires making a 2.5 hour trek up to Pouakai Hut. Then after finally making it to the hut which is a very welcome site it is just a short distance further to the mountain tarns and an absolutely breathtaking view of Mount Taranaki. I literally spent several hours here shooting different perspectives in the changing light. The weather closes in and changes rapidly up there but I was very fortunate with the conditions and love the dramatic clouds in this dramatic image.

Limited Edition Artworks

A Richard Hume Limited Edition Print is the culmination of an exacting process perfected over many years and designed with the single aim of producing the most stunning photographic artworks available.

This process includes incredibly high-resolution image capture utilising some of the world’s best film and digital camera systems, a post production process designed to ensure what is presented in print output is what Richard saw while taking the photograph, and a commitment to the world’s finest museum grade fine-art archival printing and framing standards.


The ultimate outcome is an exceptional artwork that will complete your living space and last through generations.

Every Limited Edition Print is produced by Richard personally to his own exacting standards. Additionally each print is produced individually to order and strictly limited to its edition size – when a print series is sold out no additional print will ever be produced.

Only when I am completely satisfied do I personally sign and number an individual print. 


The print is then registered and a personally signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity issued for it.

I work with clients all over New Zealand and around the world, with a very personalised service designed to create an exceptional artwork for your space.
