  • From the moment I met Linda, I had a gut feeling that she was going to be the next big thing in portrait photography. Not only was she just a really authentically nice person, she also appeared to be professional in that she asked the right questions and took the time to listen to me with genuine interest. Then I saw her work online and it confirmed that I had not been wrong about her. Linda had "the eye"... That eye that I knew so well since I had spent the last twenty years working in the fashion business in Milan and Paris, notably as a fashion photographer agent and an art director in fashion magazines including Harper's Bazaar and Italian Vogue. My portraits are not only working for me, they ARE me. How could I have a photo of me that doesn't represent who I am? The photos that Linda took of me represent me perfectly. They are the key to my soul, the door to my inner self, the first impression I make when a prospective client does a Google search on me. The portraits that she took of me have been highly praised by friends and professionals in the fashion business. But most importantly for me, they have allowed others to trust me because that's what Linda and I wanted. Our intention was to be able to connect with the viewer through my photos and attract new clients. That was our goal and that is what is happening. I enjoyed Linda's relaxed demeanour prior to, during and after the shoot. I was so nervous despite my experience in the field, however Linda knew how to boost my confidence by asking me to send her visual ideas of how I wanted the portraits to look, inspirations for poses, hair, makeup, etc. During the shoot she made me feel comfortable and at ease. In the end I had so much fun that I didn't want it to stop!

Portrait for MEC Winter CataloguePortrait for MEC Winter CatalogueWe hired Linda to help us with some of our non-product catalogue pages. We had her doing everything from the photography, to styling, to location scouting and project management for these pages. She is an amazing resource, talented photographer and a real pleasure to work with. We were very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Linda, and would hire her again in future.

Having full makeup, hair and grooming done by one of my professional stylists works best to achieve my dynamic shooting and lighting style and to provide you with the looks that best communicate your versatility, personal style. Don’t know what to wear? Have one of our wardrobe stylists professionally dress you from head to toe with various styling options to best suit your style and budget.

I love photography and helping people, so I thought I'd combine the two by offering mentoring sessions for beginner and budding photographers alike! 

Together we take you through only the stuff that you want to learn in a casual yet informative in-person or video chat session. We can also get you out shooting to build your portfolio or learn as you go on your own private photo safari with me, guiding you along the way.
