Linda set up the original and first ever Street Photography Meetup Group named We Shoot People in 2009. A successful group with over 2000+ members. "I set up We Shoot People because as a novice I was looking for a local photography group with like-minded people into street photography in the London area, however there wasn't one, so I set one up myself!" Since then she has inspired dozens of other Street Photography groups which hosts budding street photographers.
Linda was the first ever street photographer commissioned by Airbnb to become an 'Experience Host; when they launched their original concept in 2016. Linda worked with them in the months leading up to the official launch by testing the idea and and hosting guests from all over the world, who visited London and wanted a Street Photography experience with a professional photographer. There are now 100s of international photographers adapting this Experience host concept.
