Who am I? … well I am Linda, the one who gave up College, to be precise University of Science of media and entertainment, only 5 exams before the end, because I dreaded the idea of being labeled as publicist. For all my life I have only been interested in animals indeed….
I am the one who, nevertheless, didn’t study Veterinary cause I can’t even bear the sight of a syringe.
I am the one who has worked as an assistant to a very talented photographer, my dear friend Livio Moiana ( is “Muse” right also for men in English?), confirming beyond all doubts, that photography was something important to me, but then just gave up to go and work in dad’s company, trying to do the “right” thing. In logistics.
I am the one who, fortunately, one day had a serious fight with dad and so decided to flee in Africa, where came full circle and eventually definitively reunited with photography, wildlife photography this time. And with animals, of course. Special thanks go to another talented photographer I travelled with, Federico Veronesi (always the same doubt about men’s use of “Muse”).
Among all I have experienced in my life, Africa Blues is the only thing I really wish to everybody.
I got it immediately, during my first journey, and it got worse and worse, so much to take me to live in Johannesburg, to get closer to my heart, which I lost in the African bush years ago. Sometimes I meet him, in the silhouette of an elephant at sunset on the Chobe, or feel it in the mighty roar of a lion, in the dark African night. But I leave it there. Because it is his place.
Unconditional love for Africa and for wildlife photography are therefore the reasons I traveled tirelessly for years, trying to learn everything I could on the field: all about animals and their behavior (also working as a volunteer in wildlife rehabilitation centers), all about photography, editing and finally, about the organization of photographic trips, the way I expect a photographic trip should be done.
In Johannesburg, together with my husband Andrea, I founded WildShot Safari, a company that organizes photo safaris. Now I take passionate photographers around Africa, in search of the perfect light and enchanting scenes, sharing what I know about photography and post-production.
And I am sure that everyone, once back at home, covering hundreds (ok, thousands) of pictures taken, will realize that they have brought back a lot more….
