Optical Engineer

Margy Green is a biologist, an optical design, optical analysis and optical systems engineer, and a photographer. She received a B.S. in Biology from Wofford College and a B.S. in Optical Engineering and M.S. in Optical Sciences from The College of Optical Sciences at The University of Arizona. If Canon didn't already make such great lenses, she could design her own. She has studied parasitology at Vanderbilt University and entomology at The University of Arizona, both at the graduate level. Prior to changing careers and her primary employment in optical engineering, Margy worked in various aspects of biology from field ecology, microbiology and immunology to physiology.

Realizing most people don't appreciate insects, she hopes to educate others on their beauty and complexity using her insect photography as the vehicle of attitude change. Hopefully that will mean one less insect squashed simply for being a “bug”.

Margy's primary photographic subject is wildlife to stay in touch with the biologist inside, but she photographs a variety of subjects including macro, sports, landscape, event and portraits.

Margy is also available as a Naturalist/Photography Guide for custom and private world wide expeditions.
