theater photo workshop w Jon Sachs
Through trial and error, and with great help from modern technology, Jon Sachs has worked out methods to get successful theater photos, and decided to put these seminars together to share and to raise money for Quannapowitt Players.

Workshop 1 Watch How He does It

Note both sessions for Workshop 1 will be held on March 15th now

Workshop 1, Session 1 & 2 cost is $20, which we will collect at the door.

Session 1 March 15, 3:30 – 6 pm:  Attend the dress rehearsal of “Of Mice and Men” at Quannapowitt Players, watch the play, and see how Jon takes photos.

Session 2 March 15, 7-10 pm:  Watch as Jon does the critical next step,  post processing in Adobe Lightroom and explaining every aspect of the process. While this is not intended to be a workshop on learning about how RAW image workflow with Lightroom works, if you are curious about that, this might be worth attending just for an overview of RAW and Lightroom.

Workshop 2: Do It Yourself

Session 1 March 17, 7-10 pm: Take your own photos at a special rehearsal where each participant will get to shoot.

Session 2 March 18, 7-10 pm: Post processing: Select, crop, adjust your own images with guidance from Jon.

Workshop 2, Session 1 & 2 cost is $95, which we will collect at the door

Note: Workshop 2 requires that you have Adobe Lightroom on a laptop! (Free trial available from Adobe.)

Each workshop comes with a course outline that will be your checklist for theater photography. An interchangeable-lens DSLR camera is best for this sort of work, followed by a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, followed by high-end point and shoot with zoom. But the ability to shoot in RAW format is critical. The workshop will leverage the advantages of RAW, as well as the issues.

All workshops to be held at Quannapowitt Players at 55 Hopkins Street in Reading.

Please go to  to reserve your slot for either or both of the theater photography workshops.
