Hello and welcome to LT Visuals Photography!
I’m Tiffany Linden and I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to get to know us a little more. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and tell you some about my photography.
I’ve been photographing things for almost as long as I remember. My first camera was a little Jam Cam that took 6 horribly crappy photos and I edited them on the cheesiest little program, Microsoft Picture It! I’m laughing to myself just remembering how proud I was of my editing skills. In addition to the Jam Cam I also received multiple disposable cameras over summers, but when I was 9 years old I received my first real digital camera. It was just a little point and shoot, but I was so proud. As I remember it was actually supposed to be a compliment to the family newsletter I was trying to write on a regular basis. I loved taking photos with that thing, and used it for many years I was designated my family’s historian.
When I was in high school my love for photos began to take a more serious turn. Inspired by my dad’s own love for the medium and a family friend, I began to look into becoming a serious commercial photographer. My dad helped me purchase my current camera, and I began to drag my sister out into the yard for photo sessions. My photography grew throughout high school but it wasn't until I choose to pursue an art degree in college that I really found my stride. Thanks to my amazing photography professor, Karen Graffeo, I came to respect my choosen medium as a fine art, not just a way to document life. I learned so much in those years at school and by the time I graduated my understanding of photography had been narrowed into a specific vision for my work.
Today I label myself as a lifestyle photographer and strive to combine my historian beginings in the medium with the artistic training and understanding I received in college. My goal with photography, both that I do for myself and that I do for my clients, is to capture life in the most beautiful way possible. To make a photograph is a wonderful thing, but to make memory is even more special. At the end of the day I want to make photographs that capture the real lives, real moments and real memories of the people I’m photographing.
