Lynda Mallett was born in England, in 1944. She studied art at school and university, and throughout her life. She has lived in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres and, travelled to, many places in the world. She now lived in Oyster Pond Nova Scotia on the edge of a tidal inlet.
She delights in photographing a place over and over again in all its seasons, looking for moods and reflections in the natural environment, studying the landscape to find the unusual in the usual.
To capture a moment of light, colour, mood and composition the photographer has to ‘be there’! That moment is often fleeting – requiring patience and technical knowledge – capturing an image that is utterly unique. To photograph wildlife you have to be there!
It all requires an obsession and skill to become familiar with the animal and its habitats and to stick it out in all weathers!
Lynda was a teacher and an historian and has been actively engaged in heritage interpretation both in the UK and Nova Scotia. She has many photographs published in heritage/history and archaeology magazines internationally.
Her photography flickr site has to date over 25,000 views.
She has recently had photography on a book cover published for Nimbus books in Halifax – L’nu’k The People by Theresa Meuse.
