About Us


Craig Potton Gallery + Store was inspired by Nelson-born conservationist and photographer, Craig Potton, and opened in September 2013.

Craig Potton is New Zealand’s best known landscape photographer and an ardent conservationist. In pursuit of his photography he has tramped and climbed extensively in New Zealand, its sub-Antarctic Islands, the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, the Nepal Himalaya, and more recently Poland, India and Iceland. For more than four decades he has documented the New Zealand wilderness, exploring relationships between the concept of artistic beauty and wilderness in the natural world.

With the help of his wife Catherine (Director), Leonie (Gallery Manager), Tania and Christine (Gallery Assistants) the gallery now showcases Craig's extensive body of work as well as the fine art and jewellery of some of the most significant contemporary artists in New Zealand. 

The gallery also showcases adult teeshirts by New Zealand brands Tumbleweed and Clothesline. We also stock a creative range of children's gifts, clothing and books by Seedling, Tumbleweed and Potton & Burton.

As a staff we pride ourselves on being customer-focussed and are always available to help. If there is anything you desire please ask, including finding images from the far flung corners of New Zealand through to sourcing the perfect teeshirt. 

We look forward to seeing you,

Craig, Catherine, Leonie, Tania & Christine
