The Lindsay Adler Workshop - 2012 Philadelphia

For the May 2012 event, the Philadelphia Glamour Photography Group and Sigma Photo are proud to once again host a very special workshop with renowned photographer and author Lindsay Adler.

About Lindsay...

Lindsay Adler has become a modern day icon in the photography world. Having been published and featured in over 15+ magazines, and now a leader in the fashion and glamour photography genres, Lindsay is one of THE photographers that many models want to work with, and one that many photographers look up to for inspiration. Sponsored by the likes of Sigma Lenses, Calumet, Lensbaby, Broncolor, and Unique Photo, Lindsay has earned her place among the greats in contemporary photography. With her second book now available on Amazon and on many retail shelves (Fashion Flair for Portrait and Wedding Photography ), Lindsay Adler is a regular contributor to publications such as Rangefinder, Popular Photography, Shutterbug, and Professional Photographer. She is a frequent speaker at conferences such as the WPPI and Photoplus.The name of Lindsay Adler resonates in the photography circles as one who is both an innovator, and a photographer of skill and passion. Pick up any current photography publication, and you will likely see an advertisement of Lindsay in there, as she is on the cutting edge with photographic technique, marketing, and is a leader in the field of photography. This workshop will be another unique and profound experience for everyone, as Lindsay is again presenting material that will benefit all artists involved.

Lindsay will be conducting a two-part workshop, focusing on both those behind and in front of the camera. By providing makeup artists, hair stylists, and models with the essential information that they as contributing artists need to know in order to have a successful fashion/glamour photo shoot, Lindsay will address such components as the number of looks, the required number of images, and other essential preparation needed to be performed by the makeup artist, the hair stylists, and the models. This workshop is the first to address the people who play a key role in making a successful photo that are not clicking the camera, but instead playing an extremely important part in the development of the image. If you are a makeup artist, hair stylist, model, or another type of contributing artist who is serious about working in the fashion and glamour industries, then this workshop is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for succeeding in a very competitive environment. Learning directly from someone who is published nationally and internationally on a regular basis is not a regular occurrence, so don’t miss out on this special opportunity. Lunch and networking time are provided for this portion. Lighting equipment for this event will be in part supplied by Bron Imaging.

Part 1:

Essential Need to Knows for Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, Models, and other Contributing Artists


(lunch/networking 11am-12pm)

-Lindsay will discuss directly with the makeup artists, hair stylists, models, and attending photographers the components that go into executing the photographer’s vision for a glamour/fashion shoot, the number of looks expected, the anticipated number of images, and other essential preparation for a successful project execution. Makeup artists and hair stylists will benefit directly from learning firsthand what the professionals require in order to conduct a high level fashion shoot. Makeup artists and hair stylists will gain insight on what is needed to help make a fashion or glamour shoot be the best that it can be. Models will learn how to prepare for a shoot in a way that makes them more competitive, as they acquire a better understanding of what is needed by all parties involved.

Part 2:

Creative Studio Lighting


-for the second portion of the event, Lindsay will present and conduct an intensive creative lighting workshop, focusing on the basics of glamour and fashion photography, and how to make the most of studio lighting. This will be a hands-on workshop with live models addressing the elements of fashion lighting, including an explanation on why these techniques are used, a demonstration of each, along with several hours of hands on shooting practice with select models as subjects. Vintage Beauty Clothing will be providing several models and designs to be featured in the photography portion. Photographers are encouraged to be prepared to take notes, as this will be a very active workshop. Sigma Lenses will also be on hand to provide loaner lenses to the photographers. If you have ever wanted to try a different focal length, this will be the best opportunity. Sigma will have many 50mm, 85mm, 28-70mm, and others on hand for photographers to try out for free while participating in the workshop. Lindsay’s links are listed below for your review. One glance through them will clearly show why she is an exceptional photographer, and why she is such demand from photographers who want to network with and learn from.

A quick breakdown of the day’s events:

Essential Need to Knows for Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, Models, and Supporting Artists

    Had an amazing time!! Shot with many great photographers, worked with some very talented MUA's, and learned a lot from Lindsay's presentation. The whole experience was wonderful and very informative. Many thanks to Albert for organizing this event!

    May 16, 2012

  • AGH,, -extra kudos for our muas for this event. The feedback is overwhelming...they were just amazing, and deserve so much credit. MUA's work hard and are easily overlooked, so please credit them where possible. The post event doc is being sent in just a bit, and will have a break down of who worked on who.

    May 15, 2012

  • Tina K.

    This was absolutely amazing- Thank you Albert for working so hard to put this together! Lindsay was great- so knowledgable and talented, along with the photographers, models, and my fellow MUAs. Super collaboration- thanks all!

    A very big event it was; 16 models, 16 photographers, w/supporting family and friends to listen to Lindsay lecture and instruct on a variety of techniques and topics. Many thanks of course to Lindsay, and to Dave with Sigma for being on hand to loan lenses, insight, and more; to the absolutely hard working team of muas (Diane, Tina, Bree) for being core components of the team; the event could not have happened without them; to Karla for bringing such wonderful clothing; Frank, Christian, Steph, and the others who helped w/set up & tear down. Workshops of this magnitude have many components, and the patience and help to round things out was greatly appreciated. The models who attended, and the muas who worked on them, they are the cream of the crop. They set themselves apart from the rest because they wanted to be part of something that propels them forward. The photographers who attended showed a skill level and receptiveness to knowledge that is extraordinary. This group rocks. :O)

    Thank you to Albertr for organizing such an awesome event. Lindsay is amazing! so knowledgeable, gifted in her skills, friendly and down to earth. I met new models and photographers and saw some friend from previous events. I truly loved the ROOF!! It felt freeing :) I cannot wait to see the pics from the day! AGain Thank you to ALbert and Lindsay Adler:)

  • Aaron O.

    Instruction was good, though there really should have been more of it. The models were not well-managed--they had to wait A LOT and many got cranky. Some organization and ground rules from either Lindsay or the organizers would have gotten things off to a much better start. There were also some issues with the lighting & computer equipment which ate up time--better tech presence could have addressed those issues.

    May 14, 2012

  • Randy S.

    It was extremely well done. It was a true workshop in that it included two informative presentations, lots of actual demonstrations of various types of beauty lighting, great models, MUAs and wardrobe. Having a chance to use a Sigma lens allowed me to get better shots...and they will have a new customer! Plenty to eat, drink, lots of interaction. Al did a terrific job. Lindsay Adler was great.

    Lindsay gorgoeus, talented, and great. Everyone was amazing from photographers, wardrobe, modelss, hair, make up. Thanks all Professional, fun and AMAZING!OMG HOW COULD I EVEFR FORGET MR> THE ONE AND ONLY ALBERTO!

  • Ross B.

    Thanks to Albert, Lindsey Adler, the sponsors and the staff at the Power Plant Studio. This was by far one of the most informative workshops I've attended. Lindsey Adler is a published artist, well respected in the photography community and the information she shared today was very well presented. The models, Make Up Artist and every one who participated seemed to benefit from todays session. I really enjoyed having the sponsors equipment on hand to test and use in a real time setting. It was a very productive day of learning and shooting.

  • AGH

    The post event doc will go out late tomorrow night, possibly Tuesday afternoon. All participants will have the references needed to distribute the images, credit the muas, etc. This was quite an interesting day, and you ALL shined.

    Regarding parking, there is an affordable garage directly across the street from the studio. I don't know how big it is, but there were never any space issues there before. I don't think they extort you like other Philly parking lots do, where you need to leave one kidney, a big toe, and two pints of blood just to park. They might only need just a pint of blood, that's all. :o)

    May 10, 2012

  • AGH

    For any questions after Thursday morning, please text or call [masked]). Minimal email access while on the road from Thursday morning through Sunday night.
