Ira Meyer is an Oxnard, California based photographer specializing in Antarctica. Born and reared in the Bronx, New York, Ira has lived in Colorado, Great Britain, Texas, Arkansas and northern Florida since leaving his birthplace in 1967. Once an avid cyclist, Ira’s life changed in 1986 when he was struck by a speeding pickup truck while on a training ride. Faced with his own mortality, Ira sold his business, purchased a used van and a Fuji camera and traveled to Alaska: the beginning of his photographic journey.
Today, Ira’s photographs have been published and collected worldwide. His images have graced the covers of Turkey’s National Geographic Climate Change Special Edition and the Yosemite National Park Calendar, as well as in the Los Angeles Times, Outdoor Photographer, and various other publications. In 2008, Ira’s image of a dripping arch in a Greenland iceberg received the runner up award in the One Earth category of the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
