Rod Morris

Director, Producer

Rod Morris has more than three decades experience as a wildlife photographer and filmmaker. After working on the quest to save the Chatham Island black robin, he joined TVNZ's Natural History Unit (now independent company NHNZ) in 1980. His name is found on more than 30 books, and his photography has helped spur generations of Kiwis to share his passion for the natural world.

Rod has a rare ability to see greatness in small things, to imagine potential in detail. He weaves stories that are complex and layered, and he understands natural history in a way no other person of my acquaintance does. NHNZ Producer Alison Ballance
