Ethan's most popular presentations: 

Confessions of a Crazed Photographer [This is Ethan's most popular show - great for all audiences!]
As an outdoor photographer, Ethan Meleg has crawled through mud, kayaked deep into swamps, endured -30 degree temperatures and hiked for miles in total darkness (often with 40 pounds of camera gear on his back) to capture spectacular photos of nature. In this presentation, Ethan shares his insight into the inspiration, passion and knowledge that drives great nature photography. Illustrated by his favourite photos and stories, this light-hearted and humorous presentation is sure to entertain and inspire!

For the Love of the Landscape! [New show for 2012/2013 - ideal for photographers!]
Great landscape photos have the power to inspire us and evoke a sense of place! The best landscape photos have three key ingredients: dramatic light, strong foregrounds and depth of field from near to far. Ethan will share his top tips on techniques and gear (including filters) for making stunning landscape photos that will leave others saying 'wow'!

Adventures in Africa
A photo safari to Kenya is one of the the world's legendary wildlife photography experiences. Join Ethan for this behind-the-scenes presentation about his recent Kenya photo safari, illustrated with stunning photos and crazy stories about being mobbed by baboons, eye to eye with lions and hippos and robbed by bandits. 

Freedom 35: A Photographer's Adventure
At 35 years old,
Ethan sold his house, bought a camper van and began an epic one year photo road trip around the continent. See the photos and hear the stories from his travels, living the dream as a wanderlust photographer! The presentation showcases the best photos and adventures from his travels, with a sprinkling of humor and inspiration.

The Story Behind the Photos  
Behind every great nature photo are stories, adventures and techniques that are as interesting as the photos themselves! In this humorous show, Ethan shares the stories behind his best photos: the techniques and gear he used to get the shots, and the funny (or not so funny) experiences that have happened to him as a pro nature photographer. Get ready to laugh, while learning the secrets to making great nature photos. 

Best of the Bruce - Ontario's Bruce Peninsula
Spectacular scenery and a high natural diversity make the Bruce Peninsula a nature lovers dream! The rugged eastern shore of the peninsula is rimmed by the towering cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment, which plunge into Caribbean-blue waters of Georgian Bay. Expansive forests, wetlands, shorelines and alvars form a wild mosaic, which is home to black bears, delicate orchids and hundreds of bird species. In this program, Ethan Meleg will share his favourite images and adventures from the Bruce Peninsula, his home for many years.  
Birds of the Bruce Peninsula
The Bruce Peninsula is for the birds, really! The expanse and diversity of natural habitats on the Bruce provide ideal real estate for nesting birds - with over 150 species recorded. And the geographic shape of the peninsula makes it a major travel corridor for migrating birds during spring and fall. Ethan will share his photos and adventures from watching and photographing the birds of the Bruce Peninsula, his home for many years.

"On November 11, the Owen Sound Field Naturalists had the pleasure of listening to Ethan Meleg talk about his passion for nature photography.  Many of his shots are spectacular landscapes or great images of birds, but he also takes remarkable photos of ordinary, everyday nature experiences and makes them transcendent...
