A freelance photographer from Ontario, Canada, Ethan Meleg is passionate about
shooting outdoor adventures, lush ecosystems, landscapes, birds and wildlife. His

Growing up near world famous birding hotspot Point Pelee National Park, Ethan often
skipped school to watch songbirds during migration. By the time he was a teenager, he
was a serious nature nerd and became addicted to nature photography after receiving a
hand-me down camera for his 19th birthday. In between watching birds and taking
photos, he completed a degree in Environment and Resource Studies at Trent
University. Ethan began an amazing career with the national park system before also
establishing himself as a professional photographer.
Ethan lives with his family on the Bruce Peninsula near Lion’s Head, Ontario. His
greatest passion in life is exploring the natural world through his camera, whether on
exciting trips or in his own backyard.
