About Ethan

Photograph of Ethan Chin in Banff National Park

My photography journey started with some really long bicycle rides.

When I was 17, I wanted to go on a road trip and photograph the landscapes of the Canadian Rockies – except I didn’t have a car, and I couldn’t afford one. So I did the only logical thing I could think of to get myself across the 200 mile mountain range – I rode my bicycle all the way between the towns of Banff and Jasper.

Following that adventure I went and cycled 1500 miles down the U.S. West Coast to photograph more epic landscapes. I did the whole adventure on only $600, because I was a broke high school student with no car just trying to pursue my passion for landscape photography. I refuse to let my circumstances keep me from achieving what I wanted.

“Anything for the shot” – I take that pretty seriously.

– Ethan Chin

Quotes from fans

Some bits and pieces I took from messages I’ve received from followers.

Send me a kind message and I might add it to the wall of fame.

“Made me appreciate real photography.”

I was about to lose interest in landscape photography before… It seems these days all you need is to be pretty and an instagram filter to be successful as a “photographer”, and it was just a bummer to think about.

But to see you do all you did, for your love of photography? Man, it made me appreciate real photography all the more.

– Kurt R.

“Never ceases to inspire me.”

Seriously man… Your story never ceases to inspire me.I have no doubts that you’ll become one of the greats in photography man.

– David F.

“The most dedicated photographer I have ever seen.”

You are the most dedicated photographer I have ever seen. I have literally never heard of a photographer going to the same lengths as you for the shot!

– Carol S.
