John E. Marriott grew up in Salmon Arm, British Columbia and took his first trip to the majestic Canadian Rockies at the age of 1 month old. Although he has no memory of this trip it was the beginning of a life long love affair with the beauty and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains and Canada. He actually began photographing Canadian wildlife at the young age of 6 yrs. old during family vacations. He still keeps those early photos of wild bears and moose for sentimental value.

In his early twenties he was fortunate to be hired by Canada Parks
in Banff National Park to photograph people, wildlife, and wilderness scenes in the mountain environment. It was here that his career as an outdoor photographer was born. During the 1990's he photographed extensively in the frontcountry and backcountry of the parks in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta and British Columbia.

In the first decade of the 21st century his expeditions took him to more exotic places. He has traveled from the Yellowstone backcountry to the highlands of Scotland and Ireland. The vast majority of his work however has been done in Canada, where he has specialized in Canadian wildlife and nature photography. His images have been published in many magazines such as National Geographic Adventure, Backpacker, Canadian Geographic, Reader's Digest, Outdoor Photography Canada, Photolife, Ranger Rick and OWL. He has also written several bestselling coffee table books in Canada.

In 2010, he launched a very successful wildlife photography tour company, named, Canadian Wildlife Photography Tours. His goal is to have others fall in love with and experience the beauty and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains and Canada that stole his heart long ago. Enjoy several of his wonderful photographs featured below.
