Typepad Import Image

Adorama has always distinguished itself among photography’s big retailers by importing and/or actually designing and manufacturing some of the products it sells. And in the last few years it has enhanced that identity by adding an educational component to its mail-order website, one that features how-to and business-related articles by top photographers. Now Adorama is taking that concept beyond the virtual: It will offer an impressive series of workshops at its Manhattan Photo District headquarters, which have been newly expanded and refurbished for the purpose.
