Ethan Meleg is a professional nature photographer from Ontario, Canada. He specializes in photos of outdoor recreation, landscapes, birds and wildlife.
Ethan grew up near Point Pelee National Park, a world-famous birding site in southern Ontario. The park inspired his love of nature, and he often skipped classes to chase songbirds during spring and fall migrations. With an in-depth knowledge of nature, Ethan has led bird and nature tours for fifteen years and is a member of the champion Kowa ’Canadian’ Birding Team. In between watching birds and taking photos, he miraculously completed a bachelors degree in Environment and Resource Studies at Trent University.
Ethan is a self-taught photographer. His photos have been published all over the world in books, calendars, brochures, magazines and corporate ads. Credits include: Ranger Rick books, Forbes Magazine, Canadian Geographic, Wyman Calendars, Lonely Planet, Cottage Life, Birder’s World, Birding, Birdwatch, Wildbird, Living Bird Quarterly, Birder’s Journal, National Wildlife, Nature Canada, ON Nature, Canoe & Kayak and many more.
Ethan lives by the shore of Georgian Bay on the rugged Niagara Escarpment. His great passion in life is exploring the natural world with his camera, whether on distant travels or in his own backyard
