My name’s Linda.
I am a Freelance Photography and Travel Journalist and writer.
The better looking half of Moving Sushi, a team of two that drove for two years from Cape Town to Japan and back through the more stranger, wilder and overlooked places across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Arabian peninsular photographing, writing and documenting people making a difference in the ocean environment. My content centers around travel, conservation, ecotourism, ocean issues, the natural world around us and how we as people interact with it. As long as it has nothing to do with snakes. Snakes give me the willies.
If I’m not packing a bag and sitting in airport terminals I can be found working with passionate and driven people writing, photographing, film making and on expeditions across Africa and abroad.
I am available for commissioned pieces and assignments (including copywriting) anywhere in the world, with a heavy focus on dedicated long term journalism assignments such as my work with Operation Smile, Smart Fish, GreenPop and Mission to Seafarers. I am also happy to discuss dedicated assignments and campaigns as Moving Sushi. My work has been published in various magazines and newspapers in both South African and International media including; Marie Claire, Safarious, Sawubona Magazine, Sunday Times, Prestige Magazine , Africa Geographic, AFK Travel, Fodor’s online, Elle Magazine and many others. Part of my writing work has involved pieces on a monthly basis for various online platforms , examples of which are in my detailed CV. As Moving Sushi myself and my partner have appeared on South African television shows like Expresso and radio shows around the country talking about ocean conservation and our travels.
I write guides for Fodor’s, specifically updating Tanzania in the 2015 and 2018 Fodor’s Guide to the Complete African Safari.
