Working worldwide,her clients include magazines,newspapers,books,tv,Warner Brothers,Marshall Field's,Macy's,Sony Pictures, Hermes,United Airlines,Neiman Marcus,The Starlight Foundation, The Jerry Springer Show (before all the chair tossing!) and hundreds more.

Her interest in the entertainment industry started at an early age with a love for music, a nice Nikon F camera from her father and a mother that was active with "The Second City"comedy writing and a downtown beauty salon that catered to the stars! Where was she to go ? Photography,writing a monthly entertainment column,traveling with rock bands and chained to her Mac writing three books.

When not getting calls to cover events for publications or PR clients she turns her camera on subjects that do not have a make-up artist,publicist and an entourage of 20.
Her motto ,"Follow your bliss" is why she felt drawn to the art world.With thousands of images published in a variety of media around the world her work also hangs in the homes of celebrities and corporations.

In 2009-2010 Linda had worked on photography,projects and publicity with singer/actor and long time friend Dennis Tufano, former original voice The Buckinghams published the photo book on him titled, Dennis Tufano "Oh-9."
