ABOUT THE ARTIST
Get daringly close to tigers, snow leopards, jaguars, and cougars through the unforgettable stories and images of award-winning National Geographic photographer Steve Winter.
From trekking India’s Himalaya in search of rare snow leopards and stalking the elusive jaguar through Latin American jungles to chronicling the nocturnal activities of the “American lion” or cougar, award-winning photographer Steve Winter ventures far and wide to come face-to-face with his subjects. This is no easy task: many big cat species are in danger of extinction, so they have good reason to avoid humans.
Endangered, wild, and unpredictable, caution is required in the presence of these felines, and negotiating their habitats can be dangerous. Winter has been charged by rhinos and stuck in quicksand. He’s had mishaps with remote-controlled cameras and captured more than his share of hikers with his camera trap on a Southern California hillside before catching his memorable shot of a cougar under the iconic “Hollywood” sign. Throughout it all, Winter’s mission is to share the beauty of big cats and work to save them.
PLEASE NOTE: All guests, regardless of age or vaccination status, will be required to wear masks while inside the theater buildings. Please review our COVID-19 policy to learn more.
