John Chardine

I love birds. I love photography. This is a perfect combination. Birds live in habitats, in ecosystems, in communities with other animals and plants, and I love to photograph all of what these represent too. However, for me it all comes back to birds!

I have worked on feathered animals as a professional ornithologist since the 1970s and have been immersed in birds since a very early age.

I am currently a moderator on the best nature photography critique website- Please have a look.

My images have been published in books, magazines (e.g., Canadian Geographic, North American Birds, Wildfowl Magazine), Birds of North America, science journal front covers, government conservation documents, and panels/dioramas at Parks Canada National Parks. I am a resident artist at Fog Forest Gallery ( where a selection of my prints is available for sale.

As a side interest, I restore and ride vintage British motorcycles.
