Linda served one year as a Photographer for an AP associate newspaper and in that year recieved three first place state awards. One for spot news of a major train accident and resulting fire and evacuation, one for a smaller home fire as flames escaped from the attic near an endangered firefighter and one for a dedicated veteran as he constructed a memorial to his fallen brothers.

After joining the Professional Photographers of America in 2006, Linda has been awarded the designation of being in the top 10 Photographers in the state each of the 3 years she entered. Entering the PPA competition has resulted in 9 prints being accepted for international display with only 4 prints allowed per year. In 2007, she was awarded a Photographer of the Year award by the president of PPA for having all four prints accepted in a single year. One image, Porcelain on Red, was included in PPA’s Showcase book for publication in 2006, her first year entering.

Linda works closely with other professional photographers of all practices to improve in all areas. She feels photography is so diverse, she will never learn it all, leaving something new to try tomorrow. From traditional to cutting edge wild, Linda Gregory Photography strives to master it all.
