Hello! I’m Cyrene Krey, the photographer and wildlife nerd behind Wildlife by Cyrene. 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 I am currently pursuing my Master of Biology from the University of Saint Joseph.

I live in northern Illinois with my husband and our ten furry, feathery, and scaly babies: two big dogs, five crazy cats, two little lizards, and one spoiled chicken.

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