Lindsey grew up on Vancouver island on the west coast of Canada, surrounded by the pacific ocean, old-growth forests & inspiring artists. She has a strong connection with nature and authentic environments. Lindsey has a long journey as a photographer, producer, teacher and mother. Her photography career was composed naturally as her twin sister trained her over eight years ago so they could always have a connection that would keep them together. Today, Lindsey is living between Stadland, Norway and tropical destinations. She has never liked the idea of a permanent address.
