Her work has been published in numerous advertisements, books, calendars, and magazines such as National Geographic Traveler, Backpacker, Country, Outdoor Photographer, and Sunset. Londie has lived in the Eastern Sierra since 1982 and has photographed the Sierra wilderness extensively by foot and on horseback, often camping for several weeks at a time.
