Originally from the United Kingdom, wildlife photographer Jacqueline Deely has resided in the United States for most of her adult life and now calls California’s rugged, central coast home.
Passionate about the environment, she uses her work to showcase the beauty of the natural world and draw attention to conservation issues. A certified California naturalist, Jacqueline loves to be involved in environmental causes and activities. This includes local efforts to protect the Western Snowy Plover and the Black Oystercatcher.
Her images have supported numerous organizations including Audubon, The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory and The Wildlife Conservation Network.
This theme is carried throughout her workshops and lectures, with an emphasis on how photography can connect us with nature, teach us about the environment and also be used as a conservation tool.
Although her main interest lies in photography along the California coast, Jacqueline is driven to roam the globe in search of nature’s wonders. She particularly enjoys annual visits to the polar regions as an instructor and lecturer on expedition tours.
