International Women’s Day; March 8th, 5-7pm

How We See It: A Panel Discussion; March 19th, 2-4pm
On Sunday, March 19th, Dorie Hagler will be hosting a panel of female visual storytellers. Two still photographers and two filmmakers will discuss how they broke into their fields, what are current opportunities in the industry, and what the future may look like. Stay tuned, the final list of panelists will be announced soon!
Women’s Shopping Event; March 22nd, 5:30pm to closing (8pm)
In an effort to support women with cameras, on March 22nd, Adorama will be hosting a shopping event dedicated to female photographers and filmmakers. Adorama will be offering fantastic savings, giveaways and gift cards, while personal shoppers will be on hand to assist with any questions. Come for the wine and cheese, and build an amazing photography community along the way. All are welcome!
We Got This: A Hands-on Lighting Workshop; March 27th, 10am-12pm and 2-4pm
$25 to attend
According to Dorie, “This is the workshop that I wish someone had offered me a long time ago. I learn by doing. A lot of us do. Let us help you get past that initial fear of setting up lighting on your own.” These small, hands-on workshops are limited to six participants, creating a level of intimacy that will ensure attendees walk away with a deep understanding of photography lighting techniques. Each person will assemble a lighting set-up from start to finish, with an instructor and assistant on hand to coach along the way.

In addition to events held at the Adorama store throughout the month of March, Adorama will be launching a series, #WomenWhoWander, which will feature women photographers covering global topics and issues all around the world.
