The workshop exceeded my expectations. Lindsay is an amazing instructor! And the creative team did an outstanding job

Julie L

The workshop was an extraordinary experience. Lindsay's teaching is very hands-on and I feel like she was giving everything she's got. She is super generous, as is her whole team

Rick B.

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!
