SHORT BIO

Photography has been Linda's life-long companion.

She has photographed people since she was 10 years old, when she began taking portraits of her sisters with her Kodak Instamatic camera.

Mentored by her uncle (kisses, Uncle Koli!), she received her first 35mm film camera on her 13th birthday, and her exploration into photography exploded. 

Photography is the ideal medium for her left and right brain tendencies...the perfect blend of the technical and the artistic.

Linda became a engineer, but has photographed professionally for more than 20 years.

Concert photography perfectly combines her passion for photography, portraiture, the photojournalistic style and music.  Her involvement in the music industry, with its creative core and incredible personalities and performances, inspires her photographic spirit.
