John Zada is a freelance photographer and writer based in Toronto, Canada. An interest in adventure travel and remote regions have taken him to some far-flung parts of the world. 

John's photos and/or writing have appeared in such publications as the Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, The Guardian, National Geographic Online, The Telegraph, Travel + Leisure, BBC, CBC, Al-Jazeera, New York Post, Explore, Maisonneuve, Montecristo, Los Angeles Review of Books, Toque & Canoe and Canadian Business.

Before turning his focus to photography and writing, he spent several years working as a documentary filmmaker. He directed such projects as Up At Dawn: The Working Children of Egypt, and The Bitterest Exile. More recently, John worked as a producer on Canada's Dark Secret for Al-Jazeera, a film about Canada's residential school system.

His first book of non-fiction, entitled In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch, was published by Grove Atlantic in the U.S. and Greystone Books in Canada.
