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 had developed an in-depth knowledge of nature. At 19, he received a hand-me-down camera from his parents and began to learn the basics of nature photography. In between watching birds and taking photos, he completed a degree in Environment and Resource Studies at Trent University. Before becoming a pro photographer, Ethan had developed a career as a nature guide and communications specialist in national parks.
Ethan is 38 years old and lives in Owen Sound at the base of the Bruce Peninsula. His greatest passion in life is exploring the natural world through his camera, whether on exciting trips or in his own backyard.
