Mike Drew was born in Chilliwack, BC, but his parents had the good sense to move to Alberta before he was 6 months old. He grew up in small towns in southern Alberta and graduated from high school in Milk River, one of a class of just 17. He attended Lethbridge Community College and worked briefly as a parts man for an International Harvester dealership, an irrigation system technician, a mechanic, and a delivery driver for the Lethbridge Herald before becoming a photographer on June 1, 1978. Mike has a weekly nature photography spread that runs in the Calgary Sun every weekend. He lives in Calgary, Alberta.
