Go around the world in search of big cats with award-winning photographer Steve Winter. A determined explorer, Winter will lead you from Asian jungles where resilient tiger populations persist, to the Himalaya, home of the rare snow leopard. He’ll share both dangerous and lighter moments: from getting stuck in quicksand to mishaps with remote-controlled cameras. Co-author of the new National Geographic book Tigers Forever, Winter’s mission is to share the beauty of big cats while working to save them.


About Steve Winter

Steve Winter has been stalked by jaguars in Brazil, charged by a grizzly in Siberia, and trapped in quicksand in the world's largest tiger reserve in Myanmar. He's flown over erupting volcanoes and visited isolated villages where residents had never before seen a blond foreigner—or a camera.

Growing up in Indiana, Winter dreamed of traveling the world as a photographer for National Geographic. His first camera was a gift from his father on his seventh birthday. Over the next few years, Winter's dad taught him the basics of photography.

After graduating from the Academy of Art and the University of San Francisco, Winter signed on as a photojournalist for Black Star Photo Agency. Since then, he has produced stories for GEO, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Natural History, Audubon, BusinessWeek, Scientific American, and Stern, among other publications. His nonprofit and commercial clients include UNICEF, Merck
Pharmaceuticals, Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, and others. In 1991, Winter began shooting for the National Geographic Society. He has covered many subjects for National Geographic magazine, including Cuba, Russia's giant Kamchatka bears, tigers in Myanmar's Hukawng Valley, and life along Myanmar's Irrawaddy River.

Winter lives with his wife, son, and pets in New Jersey.

National Geographic Photographer to Discuss Tracking the World’s Most Dangerous Big Cats

To say Steve Winter has seen some wild times in his career as a National Geographic photographer is an understatement. Flying over a volcano in a helicopter? He’s been there. Being charged by a 12-foot-tall bear in Siberia? He’s done that. Running from an irate herd of elephants? He’s been there, too. “I’ve been scared to death, to the point where you c
