Learn Stage Lighting Founder
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.
