A little about our judge Linda
Linda Fury is a passionate 40-something year old Australian award winning photographer based in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Linda is a very active member of many photography groups and is currently the youngest President of the Kiama-Shellharbour Camera Club.
Linda has been an avid photographer from a very young age. She loved taking images with her little camera and then dropping the rolls of film off the camera shop then waiting weeks to have them returned to her. Opening the packet of photos was always a delight
Linda has been using Pentax cameras for the past 20 years and has been a regular featured photographer on the Pentax Facebook page.
She has been on many holidays both in Australia and over the world, and always comes back with thousands of photos. She gets to understand different cultures with the power of her photography.
One of her photos from her trip to Myanmar won the 2016 Changi Airport Photographer of the Year award – which she was awarded an overseas holiday.
She has taken out the double of Colour & Monochrome Photographer of the year in 2017 and Monochrome Photographer of the year in 2018 at the Kiama Shellharbour Camera Club’s annual awards.
Her latest trip to Scotland has produced some great results for her in various competitions, but most notably a finalist in the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards.
Linda decided to improve on her photographic journey by becoming a judge at club levels. She has judged at many local clubs and has recently judged at the Western Districts Interclub competition held in Parkes. She has recently shown her “Street Photography” presentation to many clubs and it has been received quite well.
Linda doesn’t have a favourite genre of photography but prefers to experiment and have fun with her camera.
You can see her work – Linda Fury Photography on both Facebook and Instagram.
