SHOOTING IS A LIFESTYLE
Living in Montana Linda surrounds herself with wildlife opportunities.
She photographs only animals in-the-wild for publications however some of her past “captive” (or human-raised) predator images are available for commercial application. education and photo gifts products.
On the wild-side she states, “I’m passionate about protecting and respecting our wildlife, and their environment. Any attempts to alter normal behavior of wildlife potentially habituates or endangers that animal. Photography takes a good eye, patience and the ability to react fast. Sometimes that spectacular moment can be captured when knowing how to anticipate animal movement and behavior. And sometimes you just need a little luck with natural lighting and with what happens around us. Either way I love just being out there!”
