My name is Denise Ippolito. I am a full time award winning professional photographer, international workshop leader, and artist living in New Jersey. I travel extensively presenting slide lectures and seminars and teaching photography and Photoshop. My workshops feature a variety of subjects including: avian, flower, urbex and HDR photography. I was a moderator for Bird Photographers Net in the Out-of-the-Box Forum for 4 years where I worked helping participants improve their images using innovative techniques done either in-camera or during post-processing.

One of my images was selected as the "Birds" Category Winner in the prestigious Nature's Best 2016 Windland Smith Rice International Awards Competition. I also won a Category in Nature's Best for 'Art in Nature"in 2015. Winning two back to back categories in Nature's Best has surely been a highlight in my career.

In 2010 and again in 2014 I received a Highly Honored award in the prestigious Windland Smith Rice Nature's Best competition. Also in 2014 one of my images was selected as part of the People's Choice Awards Top 50 Images in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. I have also won several PSA (Photographic Society of America) awards. My images have been published in magazines and books, sold as greeting cards, calendars and most recently featured in a Sierra Club Documentary.

I am available to give a slide show/lecture to your club or organization. In addition to lectures I also offer many diverse programs that can be tailored to the needs of your club. My 3-4 hour hands on workshop at the location of your clubs choice is one of my most popular bookings. The workshop would be conducted on a Saturday or Sunday and would require a 10 person minimum. Group rate discount would apply. Entrance fees to the location would be separate and not included in my fee. Travel expenses and lodging for Out of State Clubs will be priced accordingly. e-mail me for more information.
