Hey there!

I'm Linda Holt

A photographer-turned interior designer-turned smartphone photography educator

My story is all about looking through the lens


from top headshot photographer turned interior designer turned digital course creator 

I loved¬†taking celebrity¬†headshots of those like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon *truth*,¬†but severe chronic neck pain, from years of lifting heavy cameras, lenses and lighting equipment lead to a career ending diagnosis. It was either put down the heavy camera equipment for good ‚Äď or face invasive spinal surgery.¬†No thank you!

I decided to focus my lens on my other creative passion ‚Äď interior design.¬†After design school, I wanted to¬†photograph my projects but I had a CHALLENGE.¬†I could no longer use my heavy DSLR camera to capture¬†my design process



I honed my skills and captured my design essence with my smartphone. 

I was determined to make my smartphone photos match the quality of my DSLR ones. It was a frustrating and long learning curve.

After a year long deep dive into learning every nuance about smartphone photography, then practicing and refining my technique, I FINALLY cracked the code.

And now? I’m on a mission to share this knowledge.

The joy I get when a student succeeds in using their own phone to take a magazine worthy photo, is incredibly fulfilling and rewarding. 



is to help YOU ditch your DSLR (or professional photographer!) and make your smartphone your primary camera. 

I've tailored my courses, talks and tutoring to my fellow interior designers, influencers, travelers and seekers of beauty!  

I can't wait to take you on this journey 

so you can take magazine worthy and scroll stopping photos yourself!

Podcasts, speaking and sharing my love of photography!
