Heather L. Orkis is a local photographer from Townsend, Delaware, her passion is wildlife photography, mainly DUCKS. Heather is a self-taught photographer and always willing to teach others. When she is not out looking for and shooting the local birds and animals, she works a full-time job as a Flight Paramedic. Heather has been involved in public service for 20 years, starting her career as a firefighter and then putting herself through paramedic school while raising two kids and working three jobs. Heather’s husband and two adult children are all paramedics. Photography is a way for Heather to decompress, she uses the solitude of lying in a duck blind for hours as a way of relaxation and self-reflection. Recently, Heather was awarded her first International Photography Silver Medal in the 85th Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography 2018. Heather can be found every year at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland along with other accomplished photographer peers. Find her on Facebook/Instagram.
