About the Photographer:
Deirdre is a cultural, journalistic storyteller. Her love for adventure leads her to shoot in many less travelled places around the world. She has travelled to all seven continents and fifty countries so far.
Her work relies on natural light whether her subjects be wildlife, landscape, flora or city life. Her journeys have taken her to far off places from the High Arctic Fjords to Everest Base Camp to Drakes Passage, to Tuyuksu Glacier in Kazakhstan to Kilimanjaro to the Himalayan Mountains in Yunnan China and the Namib Desert of Namibia……just to name a few.
“I’ve always been fascinated by the effect of light as it moves through the day and night. For me, it symbolizes the cycles of life. Photography has been my artistic outlet for decades. My whole body feels alive when I put the camera up to my eye and focus on the beauty of our world. My telephoto and macro lenses are my favorite because I can achieve a more intimate view of my subjects. This show is a curation of my photography with a close up of the birds I encountered in my travels and the landscapes that provide the environment and ecosystems they live in.”
Deirdre has been a Conde Nast Traveler New America Award Winner and has been featured in Appalachian Mountain Club Magazine, Berkshire Eagle and has been a featured photographer for Save The Children. She uses her work to benefit non profits to in an effort to make the world a better place. She has over 200,000 photos that are available for editorial use and well as work to grace homes, hotels, offices.
