Osprey Photo Workshops & Tours
with Irene Hinke-Sacilotto
With more than 30 years experience leading workshops and tours in the U.S., Brazil, Iceland, and other international destinations, my programs are informative, well organized, and enjoyable. I specialize in small groups for personal attention. Beginners are welcome.
Photography at Tangier Island, VA
April 28-30, 2017 (Full. waiting list only.)
Second session, 5-7 May 2017.
In the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, Tangier Island, VA, is actually a series of small islands connected by narrow wooden bridges spanning marshes and tidal creeks. It's home to watermen who make their living crabbing, fishing and oystering, as did their ancestors. We'll photograph the community and harbor at dawn plus explore the beaches, tidal creeks and wetlands in search of wildlife, including the ospreys that nest locally. From a chartered boat, we'll capture unique images of the offshore crab shanties and watermen as they work. See my website for details.

“I just finished a weekend Chincoteague workshop with Irene. It was fabulous! She prepared us well in advance in terms of what to bring/expect, we had a good orientation the night before, and clear instructions as to where to be in the morning. The pacing was great, with plenty of time to edit images before gathering for review/critique. Out in the field, Irene knew just where to go to get good images (she was there scouting before we got there, so she knew CURRENT conditions), and was helpful and able to answer all my questions. She also knew a lot about the area, which was nice.
I was a bit nervous going into it, but the smaller group size, plus Irene's friendliness, meant that it was a friendly and supportive environment. I felt I learned a ton, I got some great images that I would NOT have gotten on my own. She always got us to the right place at the right time to make it POSSIBLE to get great images, but was also flexible to our requests! And Irene is HILARIOUS! Highly recommended. I flew all the way out from California to attend, and would do again.”—Submitted by Brody Scotland
