From the author of


Lindsay Adler

Job Experience:

I am a portrait and fashion photographer based in New York City. I have been published in dozens of international publications, am the author of three books, and shoot a variety of beauty and fashion campaigns.

Most Notable Achievement:

My most notable achievement is the ability to do what I love for a living! I spend all my time devoted to my passion in life, and I consider that quite and achievement. That being said, I am also proud to have my images appear in Time Square!

Favorite Camera:

The Good Ol' Canon 5D Mark II.


Don't be afraid to ask. You need to ask for opportunities. They won't just present themselves to you. Ask if you can shoot in a cool location. Ask if someone needs their portrait taken. Ask if you can borrow that amazing dress to photograph. Ask, ask, ask! Be comfortable with the idea you may be rejected, but if you ask enough you are bound to get some positive results! You create opportunities for yourself!
