Join St. Mary's County Camera Club (SMCCC) at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center for our monthly program.
The March presentation titled "A Passion for Wildlife Photography, the Stories Behind the Images" will be given by Irene Hinke-Sacilloto of Osprey Photo Workshops & Tours.
A Passion for Wildlife Photography, the Stories Behind the Images:
Based on my more than 30 years’ experience photographing birds and other animals, this program covers the knowledge, strategies, techniques, and equipment required to capture professional wildlife images. I include information on locating, attracting, and approaching animals along with prime locations for wildlife photography, the use of photographic blinds, and stalking techniques. Additionally, I will share my motivation for photographing wildlife along with entertaining stories behind some of my images.
Since 1979, Irene Hinke-Sacilotto 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.
