Irene will discuss “A Passion for Wildlife Photography”.
Since 1979, Irene has led numerous tours under the auspices of Osprey Photo Workshops and Tours, and has conducted many photographic workshops for zoos, nature centers, and organizations like the National Wildlife Federation and the Assateague Island Alliance. She regularly lectures at Johns Hopkins University and conducts seminars for other educational institutions, retirement communities, and bird and photo clubs including the New England Council of Camera Clubs. Workshops and classes cover nature, wildlife, garden, and travel photography plus programs on locations such as the Brazilian Pantanal, Iceland, and Chincoteague. Irene’s “How To” articles have appeared in many national publications.
Her photography has appeared in numerous magazines as well as many books, calendars, note cards, and posters for national campaigns.
Irene’s degrees in biology and chemistry, and her strong background in the environmental science field, add to her already impressive credentials.
Irene has contributed more than 70 images to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge’s new Herbert H. Bateman Administrative and Education Center and other interpretive displays. Many images displayed in the exhibit appear in Irene’s book “Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, An Ecological Treasure”.
In the past 30 years, Irene has led over 200 programs in more than 80 locations in the United States and abroad. When developing workshops and tours, she researches locations thoroughly, creating itineraries that provide participants with optimal photo opportunities.
