About Chris Prestegard


I've been passionate about animals my entire life and 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.  

My first memory of being a cat lover was when I picked up a mouse to help out a stray kitten. I was 4 and didn't know better. I'm addicted to visiting the Big Cats in the wild as long as I can.  

When not on photo trips or traveling, I chill out in Hawaii which has been home for 20 years. My heart is still connected to the San Francisco Bay Area where I grew up and worked. My career was in the telecommunications and software consulting field, managing sales/marketing and business development. 

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