Otto Pfister is a nature photographer with particular expertise on the wildlife of Ladakh, India. While working in India[1] for over 12 years with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, he was an avid bird photographer in his free time, eventually transitioning to a naturalist with strong interests in biodiversity monitoring and conservation.

Pfister is the author of Birds and Mammals of Ladakh (2004) and co-author of A Photographic Guide to the Birds of the Himalayas (1998). He has also authored, with Bikram Grewal and Bill Harvey, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of India (2002). His favourite lens is Nikkor 500 mm/f4.[2]

Born in Switzerland, Pfister has lived in different parts of the world, currently making his home in Colombia.
