About Stealth Prints

I'm Steve, the award winning photographer behind all the images you will find here at Stealth Prints.

Photography was embraced early in my life and led to hours spent in the darkroom developing and printing my own photographs. This eventually led to a position working for a professional photographer where my duties included darkroom work and picture framing.

I have had a few more distractions in life - chasing gold in the rivers of Central Otago, dabbled as a Fly Fishing guide for a period, cooked in busy restaurants in Queenstown and the Outback of Australia.

I discovered the Film Industry many years ago and have worked on countless International TV Commercials and many films for the big screen. I continue to gain inspiration from this group of talented people and this has helped me to develop my camera skills. 


I find I am still 'taking a few pictures', but that my photography skills have improved and I regularly produce images sought after by others.

I have worked for many high profile international companies over the years as well as New Zealand Outfitters looking for my expertise to promote their businesses on the international stage.

 Exploring the wilderness areas of New Zealand's South Island with a camera has taught me a lot about the animals I photograph and about myself.

Visiting my favourite places at the dawn of a new day always fills me with expectation.

No day is the same, the animals and the landscapes they live in are amazing, patience is everything.

….. I love all of it

 The resource I have created is for everyone.

Great quality wildlife and landscape photographs for individuals or for commercial clients looking for high quality professional images.


“The help from Stealth Films in the last 18 months has been a great part in the success for Headhunter Chronicles. As I have learned its not easy to make outdoor TV. Steve has captured some great wildlife and over the shoulder kill shots that were incredible. Thanks for the great footage you have produced for me and Headhunter Chronicles. It takes a team to produce outdoor TV and thanks to the filming I have these adventures captured forever.

Jason Bruce, Host of Headhunter Chronicles, USA 

“I hired a cameraman but I got a director, an artist, an outdoorsman, a filmmaker and a logistics coordinator all in one.”

Lanny Lambert, Deep Woods Adventures, USA 

“In my 32 years selling hunting and fishing trips on six continents, you are the BEST video cameraman I have ever seen or worked with. 
You simply are outstanding.” 

Lee Bohner, Sporting Adventures, California, USA 

“Without a doubt, Steve captured the essence of our New Zealand hunt! His eye is that of an artist, filming the canvas of his country; but his heart is that of a hunter who knows how to capture the intricacies of the hunt, traverses the terrain like a Tahr, and catches ‘the moments’ even before you have the chance to catch your breath” 

Johnny & Mary Whitworth, USA 

“I was so glad that I had Stealth Films there to professionally film the two hunts. With both the Tahr and the Red Stag being world class top ten trophies it is great to know that we have the entire hunt on film. Steve was a class act. I never even knew he was there, and in bow hunting that extra person can sometimes be a problem.”

Thanks for everything, sincerely

Rick Schwencer, USA 

“Steve Couper possesses a unique natural ability to capture all of those "exhilarating hunting moments" in a 100% professional and totally unobtrusive way. It is my pleasure to fully endorse his filming and editing services. You won't be disappointed!”
