A name that pops up again and again when New Zealand landscape pictures as posters, to illustrate books or for still pictures in films are the centre of interest is Craig Potton.

Devoted to the country, its nature and landscape photography the Nelson resident travelled all over New Zealand to gather photo material he then transformed as a successful self publisher into photo documentaries, tramping guides, and posters .

Decades of travelling NZ and a growing reputation as a photographer seeded involvement as a Location/Still Photographer in motion pictures such as ‘The Lord of the Rings', 'Peter Pan' and 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'.

In recent years growing international interest led to photo exhibitions in galleries in New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Poland and Jerusalem.

Some of his New Zealand landscape photographies are also available as posters . These are result of exploring the concept of bond between artistic beauty and nature.
