Lynsey Weatherspoon

#FOTS20 Schedule


Lynsey is a commercial, portrait and editorial photographer based in Atlanta and Birmingham. Her client base is the person next door, the startup still in incubation, the established brand or business, and media. Capturing heritage is important to her and evident in such personal projects as portraits of former members of the Negro Baseball League, Ronnie the shoe repairman, the Gullah Geechee culture of the Sea Islands (featured in Issue Four of Confluence Magazine), and Birmingham’s historic Ensley neighborhood.

Her editorial tearsheets include The New York Times, NPR, AFAR Magazine, The National, Sierra magazine, ESPN The Undefeated, The Bitter Southerner, and Birmingham’s B-Metro magazine as well as a number of trade publications. Commercial projects include Cox Communications, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Google, Blue Cross Blue Shield Alabama, and Wells Fargo.

As a portraitist, Lynsey can see where people sitting for her have come from, and where they are going. Using her experience as a public speaking instructor, Lynsey enjoys helping others face their fears to make presentations and tell their own stories.
