Photo library


Eat Here Now is the only online restaurant reviewing site that commissions a professional photographer to shoot every restaurant, whether that’s a back-alley noodle bar or a fine diner. As a result, EHN and resident photographer David Straight have built up a comprehensive library of photographs of Auckland restaurants. We also have the beginnings of a library for our Wellington reviews.

If you are a blogger and would like to use one of these photos, please email us on explaining which image you would like to use, what the purpose is and whether your blog carries any advertising – we love supporting independent bloggers and usually allow photos to be used as long as they are appropriately credited and include a link back to this site.

We also welcome enquiries for commercial use of these photographs whether that be from other websites, restaurants, agencies or print media though we are careful where our images wind up. We charge a yearly, renewable licence fee for this – prices depend on the situation and the number of photographs you want to use. We have both low-res and high-res versions available for online and print use, as well as a significant number of “out-takes” that didn’t make it onto the site. Please email and tell us what you want and how you want to use it and we’ll see how we can help.

Please note this only relates to images that have been used on Eat Here Now. If you would like to commission David separately, his website is and we can vouch for his both his professionalism and keen eye. He is a joy to work with and can be reached on ds (a)
