The photo tour to Argentina and Chile with Irene was well planned with the right amount of time spent at the various locations that provided a good mix of wildlife and scenic photo opportunities. That combined with the small group of photographers made for a most enjoyable and rewarding experience.
IreneOn behalf of the Westchester Photographic Society, I would like to formally thank you for your presentation to our club, and others, this past Friday evening.Your content more than lived up to the title “Passion of Wildlife Photography” as your dedication and enthusiasm for photographing animals were both apparent and resonated with the audience. Your images were lovely story telling captures that conveyed some important essence of the animal. This made your images interesting and… Read more
This class on flower and garden photography centered on Longwood Gardens gave me several new perspectives on how to take photographs. Irene has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which helped me improve composition and see images in a new way. I came away from the class with a completely new appreciation for taking photos of flowers and garden scenes. Irene has a very helpful teaching style.
Thank you so very much for your excellent judging at the Charlotte Camera Club. Everyone enjoyed your clear and concise comments on all the photos submitted to the monthly contest. Personally, after I implemented your suggestions on my photo, it finished first place in another club’s contest the following week. Your suggestions were excellent! Thank you from me and the entire club for your time and expertise.
Can’t wait to hear your presentation at the Club at the end of the month.

Thank you for the excellent presentation last night. Your images were outstanding, and we all learned a lot about both the subjects and the best way to approach them to get the best shots.
You teach how to home in on the important parts of the scene. You help develop a photographer’s eye and focus on the important details. You teach how to work the subject to take advantage of the best light and shoot at the decisive moment. After over twenty years of taking your courses, there is always more to see and learn from you. I am always developing new insights and improving my photographic skills.
Irene was energetic and customer focused–concerned that we were getting the best shots that we could get. She strikes a good balance between being instructive and giving freedom. I loved her enthusiasm, especially since we were in a place she has photographed for years. And her exploring alternate ways to get around the Chincoteague resulted in some once in a lifetime pony interactions. Thank you! Melanie Dormes, workshop participant
Irene I want to express how pleased I was with your Tangier Island photo workshop. Your coordination and knowledge of the Island made the time spent worthwhile. Knowing where to go in the early morning dawn and the boat charter to photograph the working watermen were the highlights of the trip. I also found the critique of our photos very helpful and showed that making a good photograph better is just taking a second look. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their photographic … Read more
Outer Banks Fall 2023 Photo Workshop
I found the days there the most educational and informative workshop environment of my career. The leadership was strong and the venues for shoots were super. Our host was so knowledgeable and helpful. But she would advise and answer questions and then allow us to do our own studies and testing and experimentation. It was just perfect for how I learn and what I needed. Help, but no backseat driving.
Lastly, I may have just gotten lucky, but my five fellows… Read more
Presentation at the Horizon Photography Summit, Fall 2018 I attended a presentation by Irene at the Horizon Photography Summit Fall 2018. Her work was so inspiring. It’s clear that she understands both the technical and creative aspect of nature photography. There is so much that goes into making beautiful and inspiring nature photography images, and she’s a master at her craft. Jean Meile
