Hi there! My name is Linda Hogstad. I’m a Norwegian portrait and landscape photographer currently based in Trøndelag, Norway, who celebrates the uniqueness and the beauty of nature. For as long as I can remember, photography has been my number one passion. I draw inspiration from the sun rays on the ocean and the magic in everyday life. I love creating magical things, and my biggest goal is to make people smile.
To make YOU smile.
“MY MISSION IS TO
TO TAP INTO THEIR
My childhood was a happy one, and I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world. It was filled with laughter and love, and I owe it all to my parents and my two siblings. Despite all of this, I was filled with a feeling that told me I wasn’t made for this world. Now, in my mid twenthies, I can see it all clearly. It wasn’t that I didn’t belong, I DO belong, but I knew that I had something more to give. I didn’t want a 9-5 job, and I was sick of living a life where the society was telling me what to do. I wanted to give back instead of always seeking for material things. That material life wasn’t for me, and I knew that I had to start looking for love inside of myself instead of always seeking for pleasure outside of my own body.
From there, everything changed.
