Peter Bannan is a New Zealand filmmaker and photographer, based in Bali. Bannan has a Fine Arts degree in Film, and has always worked across visual mediums.
An early gallery exhibition of Bannan's work and experimental films he made while at film school were noticed by New Zealand fashion designer Zambesi, leading to Bannan's personal work being used for several of their campaigns.
Collaborations followed with other NZ designers like Karen Walker and Nom-D; and shooting for publications like Oyster, Pavement, B&W, and clients such as Sony, Phillips, Panasonic, Estee Lauder, Dove, McDonalds, and Coke.
Bannan directed and shot music videos for bands on the NZ independent label Flying Nun while also shooting advertising. Bannan’s film company in Auckland produced TV commercials, editorials, worked with fashion brands, and international clients, leading him to explore the Asian region where he is now based.
