Hello, My name is Denise Ippolito and I am a freelance photographer, artist and writer living in NJ.
I am also a moderator for Bird Photographers.Net, which is an online photography site. My recent eBook “A Guide to Creative Filters and Effects” is an expression of art and nature.
I have co-led several Birds As Art instructional photo tours for Arthur Morris who is a Canon Explorer of Light. He is a world renowned bird photographer and teacher. I now offer on-line courses as well as half day workshops featuring avian, macro and HDR photography. I am available for private instruction. Please see my workshop page on my blog for more information.

I am available to give a slide show presentation to your club or organization. This 50 minute slide show “A Blend of Art and Nature” will explore the combination of art and nature. My artistic bird photographs and creative filter designs will inspire you to step out of the box of conformity. I will share some of my pleasing blur images along with some of my tack sharp flight shots. A visual experience of photographs from local hot spots to images from around the country. This slide show will have something for everyone.

My recent eBooks include:
