NHNZ images now sole-agent for John Waters

NHNZ images now sole-agent for John Waters

NHNZ Images this month became the sole world-wide agents for 25 years worth of footage from British wildlife cameraman John Waters

Manager of NHNZ Images Rosi Crane describes Waters as “one of the most well-liked and respected cameramen in the world”.

“Securing the licence for his footage will be a great asset to the NHNZ image library. All those with professional interest in wildlife filmmaking will know of John’s work. His blend of technical expertise and artistic ability makes his work stand out against other top cameramen; his style is unique.”

Waters has been filming wildlife for the past 25 years. He has worked for the BBC and PBS among others in such diverse locations as Borneo, Argentina, Iceland and Madagascar. Equally well known for his work at home, Waters is currently working on a series of seasonal ‘time studies’. These painstaking and dramatic time lapse sequences convey the passing seasons over various landscapes around south west England.

NHNZ Images now holds footage from 17 independent cameramen and production companies. Crane says she is constantly looking for new material that will be complementary, rather than in competition, with footage shot by NHNZ’s own crews.

NHNZ is one of the world’s leading producers of factual programming embracing the genres of nature, health, science, adventure, and people. With over 60 programmes currently in production, its crews work in locations around the world to produce a diversity of films for international broadcasters including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, Discovery Health, National Geographic Channel, France 5, NHK in Japan and NDR in Germany. Based in Dunedin, New Zealand, the company is wholly owned by Fox Television Studios.
