Steve Winter    

Photographer/ photojournalist

Steve Winter has been attacked by rhinos in India, stalked by jaguars in Brazil, charged by an 11-foot grizzly in Siberia, trapped in quicksand in the world's largest tiger reserve in Myanmar and slept in a tent for six months at -40 below zero tracking snow leopards. Flown over erupting volcanoes and visited isolated villages where residents had never before seen a blond foreigner-or a camera.

He feels very lucky because this is the life that he dreamed of as a child growing up in rural Indiana: traveling the world as a photographer for National Geographic Magazine. His first camera was a gift from his father on his seventh birthday. Steve started at National Geographic in 1991 and feels so incredibly lucky to have realized my dream as a kid, to have the best job in the world!

He feels that we have a great responsibility to not only show and excite the readers about the natural world but it's fascinating people and cultures as well. But to give people a reason to care. He wants to give the readers of National Geographic what he always wanted - a front row seat next to the photographer and writer - as apart of the team along for the adventure.

Steve is also now Director of Media for Panthera an organization whose mission it is to save the world's 36 cat species. He is working with the same scientists that he has done NGM stories with in the past - but now taking it a step further and helping to ensure these cats have a future
