Live at the Bike!


Introducing the new and improved Live at the Bike website! Completely redesigned logo, majority of photography AND website development were all done by Lynq Media (that’s my business name). It feels great to finally have this site up and running. I’ve been working on this ever since we got back from our Asia trip. More time and effort than originally expected, but it was worth it because I learned a lot of new coding tricks. Kudos to Nichoel Jurgens for her direction and facilitating the content, and the LATB team and their subscribers.


Will the real Lynda Tran please stand up!

So I finally figured out what’s been going on. The fake Lynda Tran submitted a request to Google to take down my @lyndatran Twitter account from showing up in the results, thus bumping her up to the #1 spot. How dirty is that. Freakin politicians. Argh.


Beware of SEO Companies

Family and Friends – Please don’t fall prey to SEO companies promising they will increase your Search Engine rankings! They convince you to completely redesign your website and then charge a monthly fee which can be quite costly. What they do is install a very ugly template which they use for a lot of other companies, and then they do practically nothing every month and hope that you forget about the fees.

This has happened to many people I know. Just ask me and I will tell you what you need to know, FOR FREE. It takes a little time and work but will save you a lot of money in the long run.

Google Search Ranking update:
Ironically, while writing this, I happen to be struggling to be on top of searches for “Lynda Tran”… but at least I’m on the first page again. I can’t wait for the Presidential Election to be over so this other “Lynda Tran” will fall off the grid. She’s some political commentator or analyst. *yawn*


My Favorite Buffets in Vegas

Since Vegas is like my second home, people always ask which buffet I like the most. Honestly, I prefer not to eat at buffets when in Vegas, but if I had to pick 3, they would be:

1) Wynn Brunch (Saturday & Sunday): $34.99
2) Caesar’s Bacchanal: $30-50
3) Cosmopolitan’s The Wicked Spoon: $24-40


Free Photo Sessions

I’ve decided to take another year to refine my photography skills. There is still so much to learn and I have yet to find my ‘style’. So, I will be giving away free photo sessions for the rest of the year to family and friends! And for referrals I will evaluate them case by case, so send over their requests. Please contact me if you would like to book a session.


Hello 2016, It’s Me

2015 was filled with ups and downs, but it was definitely a great one overall. We traveled to Paris (twice in one year!), Spain, Italy, Mexico, and just recently Vietnam, and Thailand. My immune system has been telling me I have been traveling too much, so I decided to stay home and rest up instead of joining Turbo in Japan and the Philippines for the holidays (and poker).

I am very fortunate to be in a place in my life where working is optional and every day is a vacation. I am also lucky to have found someone who is also ambitious and with a good heart to join me in this journey. Believe me when I say – hard work, dedication and POSITIVITY goes a long way. You can’t expect good things to come to you without putting yourself in a position for happiness and success.

Google Search Ranking Update:
Oops… I did it again! I stopped blogging for two months and now I’m back to Page 2 on Google Search. Argh! Darn you, Other Lynda Tran ::shaking fist::


Ana Marte: Actress/Model

Believe it or not, I found this Dominican beauty online and we contacted each other to collaborate for a photo session. Ana made her acting debut on ABC Family’s “Startup U” recently so she may look familiar. We met for the first time in front of the Pie Hole (my favorite dessert joint in downtown) and made our way towards the LA River Bridge.

Back from Hiatus

Just a quick post… I’ve been busy working on my photography portfolio and closing out some really big online projects. Can’t wait to reveal what I’ve done these past couple of months. My Instagram for photography is @capturedbylynda.
