As a 14-year-old youth, Walter was transfixed by his first Broadway show, the original production of Grease. His journey to celebrity photojournalism began that fateful night.

Meeting, photographing and getting to know the cast inspired him to spend his professional life doing what he loved… Recently, he made his Broadway debut sharing the stage with Hugh Jackman in Hugh Jackman on Broadway as well as receiving the Actors’ Equity Association Gypsy Spirit Award.

Via his official website blog “Beyond the Pink Carpet,” McBride also blogs about some of his assignments. To view last night’s Sardi’s snaps, click here.
