If you’ve read the National Geographic magazine at any time in the past 20 years then you’ve probably seen some of Steve Winter‘s images. Much of his photographic career has been shooting big cats in the wild. A quick browse through his website shows a multitude of iconic images and photojournalism stories featuring tigers, cheetahs, and my favourite that I remember when it was published, the snow leopard.
In this intriguing video, Steve was challenged by Wired to demonstrate his process, from shooting the images to culling them down to the ultimate iconic frame that perfectly encapsulates the story within one single shot. It’s something that we all have to do, but to see and hear the thought process behind it is absolutely fascinating.
