Irene Amiet is a free-lance writer and internationally renowned photographer.
A native of Basel, Switzerland, Irene has lived in the Bermudas, South Africa and Texas prior to moving to the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, UK.
She has been active as a research volunteer with Leatherback Turtles in Panama and participated in big cat density research in Limpopo, South Africa, where she became marketing manager for a game lodge in the Karongwe Conservancy, before founding her own fine-art and commercial photography business.
While in Texas, Irene was a correspondent for Coast Magazine and ran an online blog on outdoor photography for the Galveston Daily News. She dedicated much time to capturing wading birds' dance-like performances in their natural seagrass habitat.
Her work has been featured in Africa Geographic, a variety of international magazines and found space in National Geographic's prestigious stock library and online articles.
Her design projects are of an individual and unique character. Please contact her for any information.
Her work can be seen in person in the gallery she shares with her husband, Duncan Phillips, in Lancashire's market town of Clitheroe. The gallery is called Knowle Top Studios. www.knoweltop.com
Her Avian photography is on permanent display in Galveston, Texas, at Affaire d'Art Gallery. www.affairedart.com
With help of her photography, Irene has supported many conservation projects over the years. She is always happy to provide images for fundraising, educational purposes or awareness-rising. Irene started "Wild Art Fund" as a platform to raise moneys for conservation projects through arts. Please see her Boutique for current collector's prints which help raise money for conservation projects.
Irene is an avid conservationist and hopes to bring the beauty of our planet to the heart of the people by means of her photography.
It is Irene's goal that all her images portray moments in time that draw the viewer into the story as is told by nature infinitely. She believes that once mankind understands itself as part of the great system nature is, the necessary respect for our planet's fragility will be shown. And ultimately, the last of the world's wildlife may be saved.
