Linda Mackie, who shot our cover feature, is a professional makeup artist. She began expanding her business into the world of photography a few years ago when people started taking notice of portraits she had done for a few actor and musician friends. Her evolving photographic repertoire includes smaller scale commercial assignments, fashion, editorial, headshots, scenics, weddings, and personal portraiture. Linda combines her talents in both makeup and photography, giving her clients the best of both worlds. <www.lindamackie.ca>
