Knight's first book, Photography in New Zealand: A social and technical history (1971) was the country’s first comprehensive photographic history. He subsequently published numerous books of early Dunedin and Otago photographs with supporting historical information including Dunedin Then (1974), Princes Street by Gaslight (1977) and the popular seven-volume series Otago Cavalcade published between 1983 and 1985. In addition, he wrote several biographies of early New Zealand photographers, notably one of the Burton Brothers (Burton Brothers: Photographers, 1980) and New Zealand Photographers: A selection (1981)
