About Chris Prestegard


I've been passionate about wildlife photography since 2004. Observing young cheetah, leopard and polar bear families in the wild are my favorite subjects; and, I share what I've learned from 40+ photo trips on my extensive Travel and Photo Tips blog.  

I strive to bring smiles to animal lovers around the world and to share the warmth that I feel in my heart. 

I've lived in Maui, Hawaii for 27 years, am originally from the Bay Area in Northern California, and my home away from home is Ndutu Safari Lodge, Tanzania. My career was in the telecommunications and software consulting managing various sales/marketing and business development departments.  

All images were captured with Canon professional cameras and lenses ranging from 14mm to 800mm.
