BEHIND THE LENS
Thank you for taking the time to find about me! This is me... in front of the camera for a change and believe me, I much prefer being behind the lens. I am mainly a self taught natural light and studio light photographer with a number of Sydney photographic workshop courses in tow who fell in love with my very first camera which was gifted to me when I was 9. (though I'm sure I was taking pictures long before anyone ever handed me a camera) I took photos of everything I saw, I took macro shots (close up) images of flowers on a camera that was entirely incapable of taking clear close up shots; only to discover this when my mum would develop them for me-endless rolls of films(which were very expensive for a single mum in the 1970s ) They would all be blurry until I realised that my equipment just couldn't do what I needed it to do! Eventually I saved enough pocket money to keep upgrading my cameras which finally, as an adult led me to buy my first DSLR which took me to an entirely new level. Taking product shots for websites, always bringing my camera everywhere I went- I was that annoying relative that everyone complained about until they eventually started to look back on the photos years later and were so grateful I had taken them! (insert happy dance here) Doing events for family and friends and repeat referrals have brought me to this. Somehow since being given that first camera Linda G Photography took a while to manifest and many sad and happy life stories that would take forever to tell; high school, college, marriage, a job, life, children,a business; all the while thinking my photography was nothing but a hobby.
Life had other plans, it seems to have wanted me with a camera in my hand capturing peoples irreplaceable memories. So here I am. Living my own dream. I used to read about people finding their passion, using their talent and making it their career. Took me a while and lots of lifes ups and downs but I totally understand what that means now and I'm blessed and ever so grateful for the path that life has finally led me to.
As a mum of two incredible boys and a wife to a man whose ambitions are sometimes larger than life; who together teach me every day what those moments mean and how quickly time passes you by. Thank you for considering me to capture such personal moments. I could be professional and tell you that I'm honoured, but after we meet you will soon realise that I'm simply chuffed.
