Hear What Attendees Are Saying

"I had such an amazing time at the Timeless Workshop with Lindsay and Chris. It was incredible to see what goes into creating images like the ones we did, not just in lighting and the photographic elements, but in wardrobe, hair and makeup and set design too. I've never taken shots like these before - and consequently the level of photos in my portfolio has just gone up and up!.. I can't wait for the next one!"

Upcoming Workshops

Our workshops cater to a variety of different experience levels ranging from beginner to advanced level topics and vary depending on the format.

First and foremost you’ll need a camera, since the majority of this workshop is about portfolio building and we’ll be taking plenty of photos. 

You’ll also want to bring plenty of memory cards, and batteries.

You do not need to bring any lighting equipment or modifiers as that is provided. 

We prefer attendees not bring tripods as they can be obtrusive and get in the way of others. If you do require something to stabilize your camera, we recommend bringing a monopod.

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