Linda has been passionate about photography for many years. She moved to Devon about 20 years ago and is able to combine this passion with the beautiful surroundings that she finds herself in. Linda especially enjoys experimenting with shutter speeds which enable her to capture the movement of the sea and the atmosphere of the landscape. She also enjoys experimenting with texture layers in Photoshop in order to create the ambiance she is trying to achieve. Although her main photographic interest is the landscape, she also enjoys capturing a diverse range of images, from still life to travel photography.
In May 2013, Linda was awarded her Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in the Visual Art category. In May 2014 Linda gained her EFIAP Bronze distinction (Excellence of the International Federation of Photographic Art).
Linda has recently been part of two major exhibitions at the Oxo Gallery on the South Bank, London. Firstly as part of the 'Mistresses of Light' group exhibition when her image was used in the official publicity for the exhibition, and secondly as part of the 'Vision Five' exhibition where five photographers showed their different visions of the world around them. Linda has had a long term exhibition at the Royal United Hospital at Bath entitled 'By the Shoreline' which consisted of several of her Fellowship submission images. She has had exhibitions at various other locations, including Avon Mill at Loddiswell, Milton Keynes Hospital, Harbour House Gallery in Kingsbridge, and Great Atlantic Gallery, Falmouth.
Linda has been Commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013 and her print was in the Exhibition at the National Theatre, after which it was shown around the country, as well as being published in the Take a View Awards book. Her image was also selected by Camden Graphics for their Take-a-View range of greetings cards sold for Christmas 2015 and 2016.
She has gained awards and medals in international salons and had images exhibited in many different countries around the world. Linda is delighted to have started judging at the national/international level, including the Irish National Shield November 2016, the South Devon International Salon July 2017 and the RPS Visual Art Group Exhibition October 2017.
Linda is an active member of the Royal Photographic Society and is on the SW Region Committee, as well as organising the SW Region Visual Art Group. Linda gives presentations of her work to camera clubs.
