Naturalist-photographer Dr. James McIntyre was born in Toronto, Canada. Following a professional scientific career, he has returned to one of his favorite early pursuits - nature and wildlife photography; he has photographed wildlife on 6 continents. James currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah.
James devotes a considerable part of his time and effort to promoting nature-related science, education, and conservation programs. He serves as a Volunteer Naturalist for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and teaches both school children and adults about bird identification, adaptation and migration; the importance of Great Salt Lake's ecosystem; and the necessity of preserving Utah's forests, deserts and wetlands.
All of James McIntyre's published photographs are of wild creatures in their natural environments. Several have won awards at both state and national levels. His 'Audubon-style' prints are on display at the WILD BIRD CENTER in Salt Lake City, Utah.
It is James' hope that his pictures will enable people to see wild creatures in ways they may not have done before and that this new vision will lead to an increased awareness and understanding of their natural lives and the things that threaten their survival.
