Schedule

Education: Modifiers

Lindsay will begin the day by taking you through more than a dozen different modifiers and light shaping tools, helping to understand when a particular tool is the ‘right’ one for your visual goals. Throughout the day she will explain how each light in a complex scene can work together for dimension, drama, separation and more. 

Education: Qualities of Light

Lindsay’s first demonstration will explore extremely soft qualities of light and extremely hard qualities of light. She will cover the tools and techniques for each, as well as conceptual approaches to utilizing each quality of light. 

Education: Specialty tools

Lindsay will demo specialty tools such as scrims, fresnels, optical spots, and lasers that will allow you to break away from the ‘typical’ lighting and create jaw-dropping imagery.

Portfolio Building

Now it’s your turn to capture these advanced setups with Lindsay’s guidance! You will work with professionally styled models in 8 different setups to explore what you’ve learned. Be inspired, learn, and take home beautiful results!

I would love to take another workshop with Lindsay! Everything was so efficient and well organized and I was blown away by the talented teams and models we worked with. Thank you for such a fun experience!

Top notch from A-Z!! You know how people will share a recipe you love, but then it never turns out the same...b/c they likely didn't include their special ingredient?!? Well, it's just the opposite at Lindsay's workshop! She breaks down every set up with easy to understand explanations of the hows and why behind every lighting/styling/posing/post decision she makes. She's an open book eager to make the commercial world photographers better! Lindsay and her whole team made this an incredible experience that will certainly help take my skills to the next level! Can't recommend this enough!
Jennifer
The workshop exceeded my expectations. Lindsay is an amazing instructor! And the creative team did an outstanding job
Alynn
Lindsay is the best of the best and can teach simultaneously to intermediates and advanced level photographers so that everyone walks away with what they need. She is full of energy but focused and determined to get through a ton of setups. As a studio owner and full-time professional for nearly a decade, I find her style and approach to photography refreshing and inspirational. Can't wait to work with her again!
Rick
If you're trying to become a fashion photographer, this is probably the most in depth workshop jam packed with information you'll need if you're serious about making this your full time job. Classes are small, staff is extremely helpful, and Lindsay is a joy to learn from and makes things simple enough for anyone to catch on quickly and get the most out of. This is the best "head start" into this industry you could ask for.
Andrew
If you are second guessing taking a workshop, I'm here to tell you to BET ON YOURSELF. This course taught me everything it said it would and then some and I am soaking it all up to perfect for my own business. Lindsay teaches you that it's possible to shoot and make money but also shoot for passion and I think many photographers have a hard time navigating the two, I know I did. But now I know it's possible and I am ready to make the changes. If you're unsure, don't be, trust the process!
Ashley
Lindsay's teaching style is very detailed yet in a very understandable and approachable style. She works with the attendees to individually to be sure they understand and if not, helps them correct what they are doing. Her creativity at combining photo techniques, suggestions for working with models and set ups is outstanding.
Jeff
The planning, choice of models, staff, assistants, and Lindsay herself were perfection. I extended my capabilities, image impact, creativity and overall quality substantially, and got great images for my portfolio.
