Jean-Pierre Parenty was born and raised on his parents’ farm in Otterburne, Manitoba, where he learned to appreciate animals. As an adult, he became close to wildlife and, enthusiastic about photography, combined his two passions to become a wildlife photographer. After several trips to Africa, Asia and South America, he decided to focus on Canada’s wildlife.

In 2014, Jean-Pierre received Professional Wildlife Photographer accreditation from Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC). Since then, he has placed himself among the country’s top wildlife photographers, winning several awards of excellence in PPOC regional and national competitions. His work has also appeared in several publications, including Canadian Geographic. Jean-Pierre has also sold his photographs at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s annual auction.

There’s nothing more rewarding for Jean-Pierre than to spend a day in nature and come back with photos to share. “The more I can teach people about wildlife, the more they’ll take an interest in protecting it.”
