Linda took some of the most important images through the 1960's, she was the first female photographer to have her image on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine and snapped so many candid behind-the-scenes images of some of the best bands of the time, including the Beatles!
Before moving to London during Swinging 60's, she was photographing the likes of Janis Joplin at the Fillmore theatre, Jim Morrison & the Doors as well as Jimi Hendrix.
Her big break came from assisting on capturing The Rolling Stones for Town and Country in 1966 in New York.
After the success of her images of the Rolling Stones in 1966, Linda was commissioned for publicity photographs of touring bands, but also became known for more intimate, behind the scenes pictures.

At the shoot for the Abbey Road album cover photoshoot, Linda captured some candid, more relaxed images.
Throughout her career McCartney photographed many music luminaries of the 1960s such as Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, the Doors, the Who and Neil Young.
