Hello! I’m Cyrene Krey, a photographer and wildlife nerd. I live in northern Illinois with my husband and our ten furry and scaly babies: two big dogs, five crazy cats, one little lizard, and two stubborn ball pythons.

Wandering around the woods behind my house growing up snapping photos of everything that moved (and some things that didn’t) was where I first became passionate about photography. After several years of professional portrait photography, I made the decision to return to my true passion: wildlife.

Nature and wildlife dominates my life! In addition to my photographic pursuits, I am also working towards a career in wildlife biology/conservation. I have a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science with a concentration in Fish and Wildlife Management from American Public University, and a Master of Biology from the University of Saint Joseph.

In my free time (when I have any ;D), I volunteer at “Hoo” Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation and for the Forest Preserve District of Winnebago County as a trail steward and frog call monitor. I also occasionally work as an independent environmental photojournalist. With or without a camera, I enjoy hiking, camping, scuba diving, and anything that gets me outside!
