Join Mia McCormick for an inspirational conversation with Lindsay Adler, a portrait and fashion photographer based in New York. Over the course of an hour their conversation touches on topics ranging from how Lindsay got started shooting fashion to how she found her own unique creative voice, and from how to use visual tools for finding inspiration to the importance of transforming your personal projects into paying opportunities that fit your style of shooting.

Video transcripts available with a subscription.

From starting as a teenager in the photography business, Lindsay grew into fashion photography while in college.
Realizing that she needed to start shooting the types of images that she wanted to be hired to shoot, Lindsay began re-creating her portfolio on her own terms.
A moodboard can be a very helpful tool for visually expressing an idea to a client that can get everyone on the same page. Once on set you can work on getting the safe shots, so that you are free to push the creative envelope.
It is important to take the creative opportunities that come from personal projects and elevate them into advertisements for your style and abilities. This allows you to feed the part of you that got into photography as well as showcase your abilities for the world to see.

    Loved seeing the images during the interview with Lindsay’s info on them. I have told photographers for years that photo processing (Photoshop) is about 50% of making my image. Its good to hear that she thinks along the same line. Thank you Lindsay!
