I sit with longtime friend of the show, Leighton DaCosta, to discuss photographers in movies, television, and other media. How is the profession portrayed? What is it about these portrayals that photographers love? And hate?
From Peter Parker/Spiderman to Jimmy Olsen to Dexter and more, we take a deep dive into the world of fictional photographers.
