Member’s Forum – Cruising the Southern Caribbean with Kevin Linde
December 22 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Kevin was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved to Canada in 1992 where he met his wonderful wife, Debby. In 1998 they moved to Northern Virginia with their 2-year-old son, Ryan. Their second son, Jared, was born in 1999 when they moved into their current house in Fairfax. The boys are now in college, with one at the University of Alabama and the other at George Mason. They also have two dogs that are wonderful photography subjects. Kevin currently work as a physical therapist at his own private clinic, which he founded in 2003, in Fairfax City.
Kevin became interested in photography about 13 years ago when he bought his first Canon DSLR. Prior to that he had a Pentax SLR, which he owned for about 5 years prior to switching to digital. Kevin learned the basics with this camera but was never that interested in photography. The change to digital provided instant feedback, which allowed him to learn beyond the basics a lot faster. Kevin also enjoyed the post processing which he is constantly learning to this day.
Kevin currently uses Canon equipment that he has accumulated over the years. His favorite subject to shoot is motor racing, which is influenced by his interest in the sport. Not far behind is anything else interesting to shoot. The great thing about photography is that you can take a photo of almost anything out there and make it something unique.
Kevin has been a member of NVPS for only one year but has enjoyed meeting some wonderful people and some great photographers. Kevin enjoys sharing his photos but also enjoy seeing the great talent of others. He is not sure at this point in time where his photography may take him, but until then, he will continue to learn as much as he can and will never stop learning.
