Lorinda Gray earned her first camera at the age of ten by collecting 30 proof-of-purchase labels from Scott Towels. Today, she shoots with a digital Canon 60D, Canon Rebel, a Nikon Coolpix, and a 30-year-old Pentax Spotmatic F. She enjoys capturing God’s creation with the camera and sharing it with others as a testament to His creativity and faithfulness.

She worked for ten years designing newspaper advertising for Conway’s Log Cabin Democrat and the Arkansas Gazette. While at the Gazette, she won several Addy awards for advertising design including the National Addy.
A resident of Siloam Springs for 21 years Lorinda has worked as a designer and photographer in Northwest Arkansas. Her photography has won several awards at the Art Center of the Ozarks in Springdale and with the Photo Society of Northwest Arkansas.
