Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, it didn’t take long for Jess Findlay to spark an interest in the natural world. His childhood was spent hiking and birdwatching with his family throughout the Pacific Northwest. In 2011, Findlay was awarded the International Youth Photographer of the Year award from Nature’s Best Photography. Since then, he has gone on to be awarded in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
Photography has brought him deep into the backcountry of the Pacific Northwest, the far reaches of the Aleutian Islands, the high Alaskan Arctic and throughout Central and South America. Living in an area with spectacular wildlife only rivalled by the surrounding scenery, Findlay has developed a unique style, combining elements from both landscape and wildlife photography, creating contextual images that speak to both the animal’s and environment’s story.
