Irene Kramer, EPSA
Photography has always been a favorite hobby of Irene's after she received a film camera while in the 8th grade -an Argus 75. She has been photographing ever since. She joined PSA in April, 1996 and is a member of the Central Florida Chapter of PSA, The Photo Guild of Michigan, and was formerly a member of the Suncoast Camera Club of Clearwater, D'Image Camera Club of Sarasota, and a charter member of Digital Photographic Artists of Sarasota.
Irene enjoyed having a home darkroom and developing films, including color and infrared, and also making all her prints for competition. She purchased her first DSLR, a Canon D-30 in 2000, and readily adapted to digital photography. Irene's images have been exhibited at galleries in Florida and she has won numerous medals and awards in International competitions and in camera clubs in Florida and Michigan. She has also judged in International Photographic Exhibitions many times. She earned her PPSA distinction in July, 2018, and her EPSA in January, 2020.
