The Real Estate Studio in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Merrill Irvin

The Real Estate Studio in Charleston, SC, is presenting the first solo exhibition of breathtaking photographs from across the globe by Merrill Irvin, a local nature photographer, veterinarian and world traveler, on view through Feb. 14, 2012.

Irvin was educated at the University of Georgia, and upon graduating from UGA’s prestigious Veterinary School, made his home in Charleston, where he has been practicing veterinary medicine since. For the past 26 years, Dr. Irvin and his partner have been successfully running their own practice, the West Ashley Veterinary Clinic. Just last year, they recently relocated and upgraded to a larger site on Saint Andrews Boulevard.

Irvin’s love of animals and nature goes far beyond caring for domestic pets in the Lowcountry. For years, he has traveled the world with his camera, capturing scenery and animals in their natural habitats in Africa, Asia, North America, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, the Arctic and more. His youth in rural southwest Georgia and influential family members instilled a love of nature and animals in Irvin, which he combines with skill behind a camera to present incredible photographs to the public.

Irvin will also be exhibiting at the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in downtown Charleston, Feb. 17 – 19, 2012, in the “Landscapes and Locals” exhibit in the Francis Marion.
