Taking pictures has just been a part of Linda’s life for the past thirty years.
With several supportive mentors along the way but no formalized basic training, she has eked out a niche for her wide-based abilities as an accomplished photographer. The transition to digital wasn’t an easy one and she entered into it ‘kicking and screaming’ feeling that the timing just wasn’t right. Now, 100% of her work is digital, and the computer has become her new-found darkroom.
For the past ten years photography has taken her into the journalistic world, writing for CBC during the Iraqi crisis and as staff photographer and journalist for the monthly publication of Kuwait-This-Month magazine. Her photos have been published in Photography Middle East, Photo Life and CBC online.
Her zest for worldly travels and past-profession as a registered nurse have allowed her to live in Belize, Saudi Arabia, Yukon Territory, Switzerland, Cyprus, Egypt and Kuwait. Never without her camera, her images portray the spirit of the people and the land.
Linda currently lives Nanoose Bay, British Columbia with her husband Bob.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Linda’s philosophy: "why not leave them speechless".
