Marc has a real (and rare) talent to photograph beneath the surface – he seems to find the inner life of his subject. I have collaborated with him for the best part of a decade and during that time, he has consistently delivered beautiful, insightful and perfectly composed images. He is a pleasure to work with and actors love his calm, quiet artistry.
Michael Grandage, director and producer, MGC
Marc is a superb theatre photographer. His instinctive understanding of the rehearsal and production process enables him to work with discretion and sympathy, and is much appreciated by directors and actors alike.
Lucinda Morrison, head of press, National Theatre
Marc has taken some terrific production and rehearsal shots for the Donmar and at the Bush Theatre, where I was previously Artistic Director. He is a sensitive presence in the rehearsal room and at dress rehearsals and works considerately to deliver strong shots.
Josie Rourke, artistic director, Donmar Warehouse
Marc's photos have beautiful clarity, contrast and composition, and he is wonderful at capturing a mixture of moments that convey the mood and emotion of a production. He's also lovely to work with and provides an excellent range of group and individual images, and is an easy recommendation for visiting directors.
Simone Finney, marketing officer, Almeida Theatre
It's hugely reassuring to know we have Marc with us for rehearsal photography. He's brilliant in the room with the actors - sensitive to the process, and gets the job done without intruding on the work. He turns the images around swiftly and goes above and beyond in catering to all the various needs - photographs for the programme, press and pre-production purposes. And on top of that the pictures are always great.
Kate Morley, owner, Kate Morley PR
Marc's pictures are beautiful. He captures the spirit of the production so that his pictures are full of life. They are works of art. He is a lovely, friendly, encouraging person to have in a rehearsal room or dress rehearsal.
Abbey Wright, theatre director (Mrs Lowry and Son, Dublin Carol)
Marc’s photography of our rehearsal process are a work of art. In the space of one short rehearsal he caught the intimate inner qualites of the students at work. Marc just got on the with the job, capturing the life in the rehearsal room with beautiful precision and awesome composition. From the outset, we all knew we were in the room with a very special talent.
Louise Shephard, Programme Leader Musical Theatre Course Royal Academy of Music
Thank you so much for your incredible photographs of the show. They're just extraordinary. They're easily my favourite production photos of anything I've made and quite possibly of any production images I've seen. You've not just taken great photographs, you've contributed to the vision of the piece. I feel like they form a part of the show as a whole.
Adele Thomas, director (Thomas Tallis)
Marc took some beautiful photographs of Gone Too Far! and The Kitchen. There was a lot of movement in both productions, and he brilliantly captured the energy of each of them.
Bijan Sheibani, theatre director (A Taste of Honey, Emil and the Detectives)
Marc took some stunning photographs for The El Train at Hoxton Hall. In a single viewing, he captured the essence of the production, both in wide and close up images, and worked in perfect harmony with a detailed lighting design by Neil Austin. He also possess the vital quality of direction, enthusiasm and the skill for putting actors completely at ease.
Sam Yates, theatre director (The El Train, East is East)
Marc has a talent in getting the best from his subjects and the events he covers, a recent shoot covering a major board meeting has resulted in us having images that are both professional and animated and we know we will be able to use the results extensively
Jane Frost CBE, CEO, Market Research Society
Marc is a truly wonderful photographer and person to work with. He is able to capture beautiful transient moments in rehearsal and in performance that as a producer you can then use to show people the essence of your production. He is an artist with a unique eye who has given me many wonderful images which have helped tremendously in the success of our productions.
James Bierman, producer, MGC
Marc is one of those rare photographers who instinctively knows how to seek out and capture the best shot. He is a natural storyteller and a delight to work with, being sensitive to the needs of rehearsals and productions, but still able to deliver the ‘killer’ picture needed for press and marketing purposes.
Julia Hallawell, PR and press consultant
The ideal collaborator. Not only is Marc a gifted photographer, he's a true facilitator - a warm and generous presence in the room, adding to whatever's going on within it. To hear him discuss his work with such wit and wisdom, explaining it to young people, is to be genuinely inspired.
Dominic Francis, education associate, MGCfutures
A wonderfully intuitive photographer who produces great work in record time at reasonable cost. Always my first choice.
Anthony Biggs, artistic director, Jermyn Street Theatre
Marc's great: he's a very sympathetic presence in the room and always gets great shots, accurately reflecting the atmosphere of the production.
Jeremy Herrin, theatre director (Wolf Hall)
Having used Marc on many occasions now, we are always pleased with the results of his rehearsal and production photography. He has an effortless rapport with the creative team, enabling smooth working in the rehearsal room. He provides a wide variety of sharp images, suitable for press, marketing and programme usage. And is able to capture that lively studio spirit, which is such an important part of the story.
Fran Eyles, head of marketing, Shakespeare's Globe
We wish we'd found him sooner!
Paul Roberts, producer, Phil McIntyre Productions
