Craig Potton is New Zealand's most well-known landscape photographer, and a noted and active conservationist. With the passing away of his wife from cancer and his son now at university, Craig is emerging from a four year hiatus of sorts. The first stage of this was the opening of Craig Potton Gallery in Arrowtown, and 2007 will also see the publication of his much-anticipated book New Zealand's Wilderness Heritage. A private gallery in Nelson, along with the more reflective and inspiring photography in Lost in New Zealand, are further milestones for Craig in his new stage of life. He is the author of many New Zealand books, including the best-selling New Zealand Aotearoa, Montana New Zealand finalist The Nature of Things, Moment & Memory and The Southern Alps.
