New Zealand's Wild Places product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsCraig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of New Zealand. As a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised view of the land, he pursued a less compromising and more muscular vision that sought to convey this country's remarkable landscape in a real light.

In the decades since, Craig Potton has become one of New Zealand's most distinguished landscape photographers, famous for his moody, often dramatic images that signal a deeply felt connection with the wild places of New Zealand. New Zealand's Wild Places contains not only a selection of his iconic landscape images, but also some fresh images, many of which were taken while making his two highly successful TV series, 'Rivers' and 'Wild Coasts'. Complementing the format of these programmes, New Zealand's Wild Places has also been structured thematically, with sections covering rivers and lakes, the coast, forests and mountains.

Beautifully produced with new scans to give the best possible reproduction of Craig's photographs, this will be an essential collection of images of the New Zealand landscape.

Also available in a pocket edition, available in September 2013.

I was thrilled to receive New Zealand's Wild Places in a recent book allocation from KIWIreviews and Craig Potton Publishing. I have a daughter who is fascinated with our country. She loves all things native and loves books that will teach her more about our beautiful country.

This book is hardcover with a beautiful glossy jacket. Under the jacket is a high gloss cover of the same images as the jacket. This book screams high quality, coffee table style book. The kind of thing that friends and family will happily leaf through whenever they are visiting. It would also make a fabulous gift for an ex-pat or just someone who is in love with New Zealand.

Inside, the images are broken into chapters. Each chapter covers a general environment, there is mountains, waterways, forests. Then within each of these chapters Potton is able to show the amazing diversity of our country. Our waterways are all so different. Mountain ranges that are covered in snow, or are harsh unforgivingly rocky places. The lush, cool forest scenes, where you are almost feel the mossy trees.

Each chapter starts with an introduction as well, which I found interesting in itself because Potton outlines best times to take photos, or what kind of exposure was best for that feature. The photos themselves seem well composed. There were a few where you could tell that it had been chosen for that explosion of sea water blasting out, or the way the clouds were reflecting out of the puddles.

New Zealand certainly is filled with amazing wild places. This book gave me a better appreciation for that. The starkness of our landscape, and the beauty in that starkness. $39.99 is not a bad price for something like this. You could spend closer to $60 on a similar style book.
