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 had work published and has exhibited widely. This year she has been part of the Landscape Collective (UK) exhibition at RUH Bath and participated in the 'Vision 9' exhibition at the OXO Gallery, South Bank, London in April. Also in 2018 she has had two acceptances in the London Salon and three acceptances in the Edinburgh International Salon of Photography. For more details, please see the Publications and Exhibitions sections.
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 Visual Art Group Committee, being rotating Editor for the Group's magazine as well as organising the SW Visual Art Group. Linda gives presentations of her work to camera clubs and has run creative photography workshops.
Linda is a member of the Landscape Collective (UK), which is a small group of landscape photographers who meet every two months to show printed work and discuss landscape photography.
