Wild Wolf Pup by John E Marriott 

“I am not formally trained as a photographer, but rather have learned by trial and error as I’ve gone along. I have also been lucky enough to have met and forged friendships with some incredibly interesting and skilled photographers over the years that I have gleaned information from: Al Williams, Jeff Waugh, Alec Pytlowany, Darwin Wiggett, Tom Murphy, and Terry Berezan come to mind. Unfortunately I never did get to meet the photographer I most wanted to — Japanese wildlife photographer Michio Hoshino, who died in Kamchatka, Russia in 1997.”  From John E Marriott biography

John E Marriott has a wildlife Photography tour company, aptly named, Canadian Wildlife Photography Tours, which has been extremely successful. I was fortunate enough to lead 4 tours in 2010, as well as 8 tours in 2011 and 9 tours in 2012 to places like the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Great Bear Rainforest, and the edges of Hudson Bay in Nunavut.


“My primary hope with this site is that it will give you a taste for my style of photography and for what the wilds of Canada are like, creating in you a longing to visit or re-visit magical areas like the Canadian Rockies and see them like you’ve never seen them before. I fell in love with this place long ago, and want you too to experience the beauty and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains and Canada and capture the secrets you discover on a camera.” ~John E Marriott
