Garlinda started her professional career by doing her own film developing and printing. She now enjoys processing and printing digitally in her studio in Norfolk. Some of her work is in colour, but she prefers black and white.
She photographs without artificial light and as naturally as possible.
Her commissions include the portraits of past and present Treasurers of the Inner Temple, where her many portraits hang, and the Millennium documentation of the Houghton estate in Norfolk and the Cholmondeley estate in Cheshire.
Garlinda has always enjoyed working for charities and has worked extensively for RAPt (Rehabilitation of Addictive Prisoners Trust), Liberis (children’s homes in Romania) and the livelihood charity Shivia. She has travelled to Nepal and West Bengal where she has photographed for Shivia and the APAX Foundation.
Some of her photographs of older women are included in Harriet Walter’s book Facing It.
