From October 25th through November 4th, Canada’s Banff Centre will host a special ‘Big Cats’ exhibit featuring the award-winning photographs of Panthera’s Media Director, Steve Winter. Coinciding with the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, this exhibit will display photos of some of world’s most elusive wild cats in their natural habitat.
Steve Winter is the Director of Media for Panthera and has been a National Geographic photographer for almost two decades. In his role as Media Director, Steve travels around the globe photographing and documenting the stories of wild cats and those working on the ground to save these species. Winter became a National Geographic Society Photographer in 1991, and has covered a multitude of subjects for the magazine, including Cuba, Russia's giant Kamchatka bears, tigers in Myanmar's Hukaung Valley, life along Myanmar's Irrawaddy River, jaguars in Latin America, and snow leopards in Ladakh, India. In 2008, Steve was crowned BBC’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his photograph of a snow leopard taken in Ladakh. In 2011, Steve also received the Global Vision Award from Pictures of the Year International for a group of 40 photos showing the front lines of tiger conservation, taken in India's Kaziranga National Park. In 2012, Steve received his second consecutive Global Vision Award from Pictures of the Year International for a series of 40 images made in Sumatra, Thailand and India that show both the beauty and natural history of tigers—and documents the conflicts between tigers and the people that share their habitats.
