Steve Winter has spent decades traveling to remote places to photograph endangered wildlife, especially big cats for National Geographic magazine. He works closely with scientists to cover stories about wildlife and the impact that humans are having on the environment. His goal as a conservation photojournalist is to help protect species and the ecosystems they inhabit. He now divides his time between shooting stories for National Geographic and working as Director of Media for Panthera, the world’s largest big-cat conservation organization. Steve has spent a decade in search of wild tigers in Asia, working on three different assignments devoted to capturing their magnificence and telling their story, hoping to reinvigorate global concern as their numbers continued to dwindle. His lecture includes images from his new book, just out from National Geographic Books, called Tigers Forever: Saving the World’s Most Endangered Big Cat, that were made in Myanmar, India, Sumatra, and Thailand. Images from these stories earned him POYi’s Global Vision Award in 2010 and again in 2011. In addition to detailing these assignments, Steve also discusses ethical issues in wildlife photography—and shares tech tips, including the use of camera traps and other equipment developed by Nat Geo’s photo engineering department.

Although wonderful photographic opportunities abound at zoos, so do photographic challenges. Many indoor exhibits are poorly lit and feature highly reflective glass or plastic that additionally may be scratched, discolored, or otherwise marred. Outdoor exhibits may feature wire mesh enclosures, plastics, bars, and thick metal fencing. Jeffrey Falk has spent years photographing wildlife at WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) facilities in the Bronx and Queens. He will demonstrate the equipment and techniques that he has developed to make the enclosures disappear and allow an unobstructed photograph of the animal. Although Falk uses Nikon flashes, cameras, and lenses, all of his techniques are applicable to the equipment of all other camera manufacturers. Don't miss this short workshop, that gives you the techniques and tips to create masterful wildlife images at your local zoo. Safari to Africa NOT required! Some of Falk’s work on photographing animals can be found  here.
