Who Writes This Stuff?

My lighting journey began back in 2005, when I almost simultaneously agreed to help with a school play and run lights at my church.

Over the next few years, I began to get experiences lighting bands, church events, weddings, fashions shows and corporate meetings.

This launched me into my first job - a entry-level employee at a small lighting company.

Over 10 years later, I've had the opportunity to light all kinds of events, and have found a love for sharing what I know with others, so that you can create great lighting too...​

6 weeks ago, I knew nothing at all about stage lighting but knew that somehow I wanted to create a decent 'mini stadium' light show for my band.

Fortunately I came across David and LSL online.

He has a very practical, clear approach, explaining which systems and products to use, essential lighting techniques and how to create a convincing show when you're starting out on a budget.

I'm now confidently programming and sequencing quite complex DMX light shows for the band.

Am I an expert at it?

Far from it.

Have I discovered a new lifelong passion?

Absolutely!  I strongly recommend this site.

Learn Stage Lighting has helped me create an overview of which "tools" are available when creating a light show to support and enhance the mood and audience experience of each individual song and the whole show in general.

Good lighting elevates the total perception of a performance compared to just focusing on the music.
