Based in Geelong, Australia, Lynden has been capturing images since last century and switched to digital photography in 2004. Since then Photoshop has become as important to him as his beloved Canon camera, and while he has mastered both, he says that nobody can ever fully conquer Photoshop!
Setting himself an initial goal of publishing 365 photos in 365 days on his webpage and various social media sites, Lynden kept on going and has now passed 4,000 daily images with accompanying blogs. He says that the discipline of crafting a picture every day has dramatically improved the photographs he produces, while reaching 33,000 followers on Google Plus was all the endorsement he needed that his work was being appreciated.
Lynden was born in the Wimmera but has lived in Geelong at the beginning of the Great Ocean Road for more than twenty-six years.
His wife, Christine, is also a photographer and artist, and both can be found at their respective computers most evenings creating art pieces from their previous photographic expeditions.
Lynden was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the Queen's Birthday 2019 Honours List "for service to the communities of Geelong and Ararat".
