After many years of experience in photojournalism, Green currently works as an instructor for the New York Institute of Photography,[1] where she teaches and reviews the works of students.

Notable moments and achievements[edit]

Green photographed Congressman Charles Rangel,[4] who used her portrait as his official photograph for many years, and Eric R. Dinallo, the former New York Insurance Commissioner.[5] Green was the first female photographer allowed in a professional sports locker room. Following the 1976 litigation over the issue of female reporters gaining access to men’s locker rooms, Green, then a freelancer for United Press International, was assigned to cover the Philadelphia Flyers hockey game and shoot the post-game celebration in the locker room, 'becoming the first women photographer to do so'.[6]

Green has been a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP),[7] since 1971 and a former member of the steering committee for its New York Chapter.

Green has featured in PhotoPro magazine for her expertise in corporate and executive portraits.[8] She was also featured in Photo District News with focus on her skills and techniques in shooting women executive portraits.[9]

Green collaborated with Elyse Weissberg on her book Successful Self-Promotion for Photographers (2004), which featured Green’s work and promotional material.[10]
