  • Internationally published nature photographer, author, comedian, educator, computer programmer, mathematician,  public speaker, and conservationist—these are among the many pursuits of Mike MacDonald. However, the man can be described in just one word: passion. And Mike MacDonald is passionate about Chicago nature.

    For over two decades, MacDonald has photographed Chicago’s natural wonders: its prairies, savannas, woodlands, and wetlands. His celebratory work has earned him the distinction of being Chicago Wilderness magazine’s most prominently published photographer. His images have been nationally and internationally featured in many publications such as Outdoor Photographer, Petersen’s Photographic, Boy’s Life, and BBC’s Gardens Illustrated magazine.

    MacDonald is the creator of an immersive style of landscape photography, designed to give viewers a hyper-realistic experience of each breathtaking scene. He lives near Chicago with his wife, Cordy, and their prairie garden.
