Photographer Linda Pedroso grew up believing that climbing the corporate ladder was the only
way to achieve success. So, that’s what she did. Forgoing college, she worked her way through
the fashion industry, eventually landing a position as a Production and Sourcing Manager. But
after 17 years, having worked for several high-profile companies including Ralph Lauren, Calvin
Klein, and Betsey Johnson, Linda realized that the world of fashion wasn’t the place her heart
longed to be.
Determined to find her calling, Linda decided to build a side business as an event planner. Once
again—as is her way—she taught herself about the industry and began planning fun and fabulous
events all across NYC. Yet even this new success she’d created for herself didn’t completely fill
Then one Christmas day, she received a Canon Rebel T2I camera. Eager to expand her
knowledge and skills in the field, Linda began taking classes with Hoboken, NJ based
Photographer and arts educator, Craig Wallace Dale. Enamored with his way of using images to
tell stories, Linda’s fun and relaxing hobby quickly morphed into a passion she couldn’t see her
Eight years later, Linda’s love for capturing memories led to the development of her own
company—Linda Pedroso Photography, LLC. Behind the lens, she aims to create breathtaking
images for private and corporate events, real estate, and portraits. Her expanding list of clients
includes Healing Hands Scrubs, Comedian and SNL writer, Sam Jay, and Lifestyle International
Realty as well as (commercial) development companies and resorts.
Linda currently works from her home studio in Jersey City, NJ and is diligently making strides
toward her dream of building a one-stop media shop—an inclusive and safe space for other
artists to create, learn, and build community.
Though going from corporate worker to business owner was not without its challenges, Linda
hopes her journey inspires her nieces, nephews, and other young people to follow their intuition
