I had an opportunity to work with local theater and to shoot for their archive. So, I did my preparation – read the script, went to rehearsals, did some test shoots on a pre premiere and finaly did my job. Sometimes , I had to improvise when guest show was on, and do my work on “place”, on premiere.  So, sometime, on a premiere show, theater was full of newspaper reporters with small compact cameras – and I do understand them ’cause they were doing their job – but so much flash lights in dark theater was so annoying. Next day, a reportage in newspapers was pretty short and general with bunch of bad pictures and lot of cliche “nothing to say” statements.

I asked a theatre manager how come that he as a manager can allow such thing happened when he has so much pictures in his archives? And why didn’t he organize a press conference where he could give some samples to newspapers?

Was I wrong?

  1. I think this is only normal that you avoid flashlite in the theater. I’m not an expert on theater photography, but usually during te premiere all photography is banned. Theater usually hires a photographer to shot pictures on the rehearsal before the premiere and then distribute few best pictures for free. Of course photographer and theater forehand arranges a fee for his / hers service.
