Lindsey earned her B.F.A. in photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2005 and has played many roles as a freelancer in the commercial photo industry ever since. After an internship with a food photographer and photo assisting throughout the city, she shifted her focus to stylist assisting at the Crate & Barrel and CB2 in house catalog studio in 2007. Here she learned invaluable tricks of the trade from top prop stylists, food stylists and photographers and became one of the company's main soft goods stylists. Lindsey gained representation by Ford Models and Artists in 2010 as a lead prop and soft goods stylist, but then decided to leave the agency in 2013 in order to better hone her culinary skills and focus on propping for food photography. She took night classes (in a hot kitchen after long shoot days) and earned her Culinary Certificate at Kendall College of Culinary Arts in 2015. This additional hands on experience and technical culinary knowledge enable her to be an even more well rounded stylist for creative recipe propping. She has a unique relationship with clients as well as food stylists and works closely with them to understand the prop needs of each recipe and brand's identity. Along with her love of photography, styling and culinary, Lindsey also loves collecting. Her collection of culinary props and surfaces at Throop rental studio grows by the week! She enjoys collaborating with local ceramicists, woodworkers and artists to get the perfect look, shape and size props for her most discerning clients. She also loves estate sales, flea markets, dirty digs, shopping of every kind and making photography surfaces in her spare time. Lindsey is currently self represented in Chicago as a tabletop, interiors and soft goods stylist.
