Malinda Baum is a visual artist specializing in photography and film for change-making organizations and causes. Her unique professional journey has sharpened her perspective on the human experience, resulting in imagery that changes the way people see each other and themselves.
She also commissions fine art, with special collections on nature and portraits.
Mother of four and military wife, Malinda’s always balanced an innate drive toward service, family, and creativity. Pulled toward a greater purpose at 33 years old she trained as an EMT, later enrolling in the fire academy as the first female on the squad. She then spent 13 years as a firefighter and paramedic, as the first female on the squad.
With a belief that images speak more profoundly than facts, Malinda is driven to capture photography that explains topics and context when words often fail. She’s produced multiple series on homelessness and her work has been featured at SXSW.
