And Scene #7 - Theater Photography w/ Marc J Franklin

May 15, 2017

Welcome to this week’s episode of the And Scene Theater Podcast!  We are joined this week by theater photographer, Marc J. Franklin (@MarcJFranklin)! 

In Act 1, we talk about the somewhat surprising sweeps of the non-Tony awards handed out this week, some new theaters both home and abroad, and the announcement of NBC’s latest foray into televised musicals. 

In Act 2, Marc joins us to discuss his career as a photographer working in and around the theater.  Marc is the staff photographer for so you’ve most definitely seen his work — whether you’ve known it or not!  Marc gives us some hints on how to prepare for a headshot session, what equipment to buy if you’re a budding photographer, and what happens when a cruise-goer knock int your F-stop!

What are your experiences with theatrical photography?  Have you posed for a production photo call?  Any headshot horror stories?  Let us know!
