A Passion for Wildlife Photography: the Stories Behind the Images

She will include information on locating, attracting, and approaching animals along with prime locations for wildlife photography, the use of photographic blinds, and stalking techniques. Additionally, she will share her motivation for photographing wildlife along with entertaining stories behind some of her images.

 
Since 1979, Irene has shared her photographic experiences and love of nature with thousands of individuals through more than 200 photo classes, workshops, lectures, and tours in both the U.S. and abroad including the Brazilian Pantanal, Newfoundland, Falkland Islands, Iceland, Argentina, Chincoteague NWR, Assateague, the Florida Coast, South Texas, South Dakota Badlands, Bosque del Apache NWR, etc.

Sponsors have included zoos, nature centers, camera clubs, and conservation organizations such as the National Wildlife Federation.  For more than 19 years, she has taught photography classes at Johns Hopkins University and other educational institutions and has written “How To” articles on nature photography for national publications such as Outdoor Photographer and Birding.

Her images have appeared in magazines, calendars, and books published by National Wildlife Federation, Natural History Society, National Geographic, Audubon, and Sierra Club.  Her book, “Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, an Ecological Treasure,” is sold in bookstores nationwide.
