Professional Landscape Photographer
Based in Idaho
Linda was raised in the forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a reforestation contractor, she spent her youth developing a deep appreciation for the great outdoors. As a native Idahoan she is inspired by the spectacular beauty of her home state.
A Hayden resident, Linda explores the roads less traveled, mostly in solitude, to capture the wild beauty and diversity of the state. Her images reflect the region’s most breathtaking scenes, as they are captured with striking and dramatic composition. Linda’s passion for this beautiful place has defined her and drives her in the photographic arts.
When not at home running her photography business, Idaho Scenic Images, working on a publishing project, or teaching a workshop, she is out somewhere exploring a road she has never driven, often sleeping in her vehicle, perfectly positioned for an Idaho sunrise.

I understand the inconvenience of viewing images through a watermark.
It has become a challenge to find a happy medium between image protection and viewing aesthetics.
I have an obligation to protect my images, both to myself and the agencies that represent my work. Beside the protection issues, watermarking can actually direct potential customers to me when they find an image floating around the web.
Unfortunately many individuals don't understand copyright.
Applying a watermark is sending a clear message that the image is under copyright protection and permission and/or fees are required for use. When you view images in my archive, they will have my standard watermark, designed by Lenzi Forge and applied by my archiving company.
When you view my art images on various sites they will have some type of watermark, usually not as obtrusive, applied by the company. Be assured... watermarks will never appear on your prints or purchased image files.
So for now...I apologize for the inconvenience, but hope you understand.
