My name is Maura van der Linden and I have a passion for storytelling. Though this passion first showed itself on pen and paper (or at least on screen and keyboard), I took up photography so I could try to tell stories in a different way. I'm a technical writer and freelance editor during the day, so it's a pleasure and a challenge to turn to a medium that doesn't use words at all.
I'm a relatively new photographer based near Woodinville, Washington and am focused on learning my new art at the moment, though I do take a limited number of local assignments since I learn extremely well on the fly.
I'll use this blog to showcase my work as I learn and to give my experiences as a self-taught photographer who is not doing this as my main job.
As you might have guessed from all the dust around here, I’m right in the midst of setting up this website to house my photography images, information and business. Stay tuned and I’ll introduce myself within the next week and get this show rolling.
