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.

About Our Guest

Leighton DaCosta, or “LD” as many know him by, is a Wedding and Fine Art Portrait Photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina. He started his photography business 15 years ago while serving in the Navy. Due to the military requirements, he learned to make his studio “interstate mobile” as he has operated for extended periods in Virginia, Florida, Utah, Georgia, and now, South Carolina. He’s conducted photo assignments in exotic and remote places such as Dubai, Jamaica, and Aruba; as well as several years flying over Afghanistan.
