Northern Pictures is an Australian-based television production company, which develops and produces unscripted and factual television programs for multiple television channels in Australia and internationally. The company was founded by Sue Clothier in 2010.[2]

In 2013, Clothier sold the company to David Haslingden, a media executive who also acquired New Zealand company NHNZ around the same time, through his Racat Group.[3] In the same year, the company formed a joint venture with Keshet International to operate Keshet Australia.[4]

In 2017, Haslingden sold his production company holdings (including Northern Pictures) to Canadian company Blue Ant Media.[5]

In 2018, the Australian Geographic publication was sold to Northern Pictures.[6]
