Irene mendez Cruz portrait_1.jpg

I am a French-Venezuelan wildlife and underwater photographer, currently finishing a BA (hons) in Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University. With a background in arts and Political Science at La Sorbonne, I am passionate about nature and raising awareness on conservation issues. I am also a former media intern at the Galapagos National Park Directorate where I spent 5 months documenting the conservation work of the park rangers and the unique biodiversity of the archipelago. My most recent work focuses on exploring the different colours, shapes and details of the fascinating Portuguese Man O’ War. I am also a Nominee Photographer for MAYN, a creative, photography and video agency based in Falmouth.
