About Chris Prestegard


I've been passionate about wildlife photography since 2004. I strive to bring smiles to animal lovers around the world, and to share the warmth that I feel in my heart when I observe these wonders of nature.  

I'm continually concerned about our endangered animals and strive to bring awareness and support for their survival. Observing cheetah, leopard and polar bear families in the wild are my very favorite subjects. And for the last 7 years, I've been focused on photographing young cheetah cubs. I share what I've learned over the years on my extensive Travel and Photo Tips blog. 

I've lived in Maui, Hawaii for 23 years, am originally from Northern California, and my home away from home is Ndutu Safari Lodge, Tanzania. My career was in the telecommunications and software consulting field, managing various sales/marketing and business development departments.  

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