Photography by Rob Suisted • Text by Liz Light

The forces of nature and the elements, and the raw beauty of the terrain that they continue to sculpt, are the subject of Majestic New Zealand. This remarkable collection of photographs celebrates Rob Suisted’s long-standing affinity with the wilderness areas of New Zealand, and brings his finest work together into a portrait of four major themes in the landscape: our statuesque mountains and volcanoes; stately rivers and lakes; the ever-changing coast; and our fertile farmland.

Rob’s many years in the outdoors, camera in hand, coupled with his tenacity in pursuing the perfect shot, have resulted in an unparalleled vision of wild New Zealand in all its moods. Bathed in a lead-silver gleam, a dolphin is frozen mid-leap above the waves at Kaikoura; theatrical light from a bruised sky plays on lonely Kime Hut on the Tararua Range; a blinding gleam of orange flares behind the gritty indigo cascade of Franz Josef Glacier as low sunlight catches the far peaks.

These are images to savour; they reflect the sublimely photogenic qualities of the natural world, and they sound a powerful contemporary note in the long-standing tradition of portraying wild New Zealand through a lens.

ROB SUISTED has spent much of his life tramping and hunting in New Zealand’s back country. Prior to taking up a career in photography, Rob spent 12 years with the Department of Conservation as the national marine mammal co-ordinator. He is a frequent visitor to the subantarctic and polar regions where he has worked as a professional guide, lecturer, researcher and photographer. Based in Wellington, Rob runs the stock photo image library Nature’s Pic Images ( He is the author of several books published by New Holland, including New Zealand Panorama, Scenic New Zealand, New Zealand Landmarks and Wellington’s Top Spots.

Award-winning travel writer and photographer LIZ LIGHT is a regular contributor to North & South, AA Directions, The Herald and Herald on Sunday. In 20 years of photojournalism Liz has travelled the world extensively, but it is New Zealand’s mountains, sea and sky, clear air, wild winds and green hills that keep her heart in her homeland.

  News - Majestic New Zealand was awarded in the 2011 Whitcoulls Book awards - we're very proud about that.  

Latest magazine review just in:

"Rob Suisted is one of New Zealand's premier wildlife and scenic photographers and his latest book Majestic New Zealand (New Holland, RRP $59.99) confirms his place among the elite.

This book is a portrait of four major themes in the landscape; our statuesque mountains and volcanoes, stately rivers and lakes, the ever-changing coast, and our fertile farmland.

A collection of 144 pages of sublime photos, Suisted's book is supplemented with quality text by award winning travel writer and photographer Liz Light.

It makes a wonderful coffee table addition for anglers, hunters, and, oh yes, even dairy farmers - three groups, which above all, need to understand the majesty of our environment and the need to take care of it."
Issue 66 Fish and Game Magazine.
