Linda Mellor Writer & Photographer

As a long-standing magazine columnist, copy and feature writer, Linda has a wide repertoire of countryside subjects and specialist knowledge of native wildlife, rural employment, remote living, and involvement in country sports. Authenticity is the beating heart of all her writing and photography, and is one of Scotland’s most experienced women wildlife and countryside photographers. The early foundations of her work were laid from working in mainstream local, regional and national news. This provided an invaluable experience and, more importantly, an opportunity to specialise. You can read about Linda’s working life in her memoir. The Confessions and Life Lessons of a Country Sports Photographer is on sale via Amazon.
