My Nine Lives

PHOTO: Steve Winter

Steve Winter is a photographer extraordinaire. His passion for preserving wildlife combined with his talent of capturing wild animals in their natural habitat has made him one of world’s leading wildlife photojournalists.

“By saving the world’s top predators, we save huge forests, rivers, wildlife, and ultimately, our planet,” says Steve Winter, when talking about his work in his upcoming show at the Sydney Opera House.

National Geographic Live presents My Nine Lives – intrepid stories and incredible images from the explorer; a journey of Steve Winter’s lifelong quest to capture the impossible that has seen him escaping charging rhinos, angry jaguars, big grizzlies, and vicious quicksand.

All very impressive, but also extremely dangerous. But the love for photography—probably instilled when Steve received his first camera as a gift from his father on his seventh birthday—and the quest for a greater cause for wildlife preservation has seen Steve brave the odds.

To bring to light this larger-than-life journey of his life and profession, Steve Winter is coming to town to present a talk filled with vivid memories, photographs and anecdotes of his unbelievable photo-journalistic career.

Here’s your chance to be gripped in his tales that will take you to the remotest parts of the world, and those that hope to inspire you too.

August 16. Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House. From $39. Tickets & info: www.nglive.org/pacific
