Over the past 30+ years I've had the pleasure of hearing and meeting Irene several times and every time her talk has been superb. Very rarely does she talk of how she made the image, instead we get little stories and/or the feelings that the scene reminds her of. I don't think you'll ever hear her say 'This has done well for me' and she has a healthy disregard for judges. She always talks of the FUN of picture making. Last Thursday was an evening of good honest photography which I thoughly enjoyed, and I'm not a great fan of landscapes.
I can't get to her next workshop but if you've the time go you'll not regret it. You'll get straight talking common sense information.
