We had the opportunity to interview Lindsay and here is what he had to say…
1. Why to you like photography ?
Photography is a great career for me that allows a flexible schedule so I can make a living, raise my kids and follow my passions; skiing and mountain biking. I love being able to be creative and no two days or sessions are alike!
2. What is your favorite type of photography ?
Honestly? Architectural and Real Estate. Houses don’t talk. I can take my time and think my way through my lighting and angles. I enjoy the process and the slower pace. Home owners and realtors are not personally attached to their images…they are usually proud of their beautiful home and cherish their photos. I do enjoy portrait work as well, mainly seniors and family, but houses are my favorite.
3. Share a funny story about your photography…
…That moment when you’re so focused on framing your shot right and take one too many steps backwards without looking behind you… Your foot slips and you realize you’re sliding down a bank towards a river… Thank goodness I had my tennis shoes on and was able to stop my slide. Thinking to myself, what an idiot! 🙂
4. Share a photography trick or tip…
People ask me all the time, what kind of camera should I buy when upgrading to a dslr? The camera isn’t as important as the lens. I always tell people, save your money and buy an original Canon 5D or similar for $450 and spend some good money on a nice lens.
5. Why do you love SmugMug and/or jR Customization ?
I’ve been with SmugMug for over 6 years now. The website does everything I need. I’m most excited about the new “Download All” button in the galleries! No more PASS or Pixiset for me! It’s nice having one site that does it all. Thanks to jR Customization for integrating my WordPress blog for an even better Smug site!
6. What is your major goal or photography project for 2015 ?
More marketing, make more money and get more organized in both marketing and client accounts. Who doesn’t want to make more money? It is my job, not my passion… Looking to fuel my passions this year…new skis are on the wish list.

Fun fact about me: I’ve been living in a 35 foot 5th in Montana with a 16 month old, a 6 year old, my husband and two dogs since last December. Our first day in our camper it was negative 12 degrees F outside! It’s a good thing we all get along so well! The ONLY thing I miss is a dishwasher… We are building a new home on our acreage in the woods and hope to be in our new home by Christmas; with a new dishwasher, hooray!
