David at Learn Stage Lighting proved to be an invaluable resource for our auditorium lighting renovation and upgrade.

 Not only does he possess a wealth of knowledge with regard to lighting of all varieties, he took the time to hear our needs and walk us through the whole process...from which lights to buy, to where to position them.

He even offered ideas to incorporate some of our 'dated-but-functional' pre-existing lighting with the newest technology so we could stay within budget!

I have learned a lot from your program.

I'm a drummer and I run sound and lights for my small band (while I play!).

Your advice has helped me experiment with and find the best solutions as we grow. I like how you explore each aspect and angle carefully. Your mock stage is very helpful. Keep up the good work.

My Lighting Journey

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

Armed with no knowledge and little help, I began to self-educate the best I could.  I read manuals, books on theatre design, and heckled every single lighting professional, and soon enough, I began making lighting that actually looked decent.

Over the next few years, I began to get experiences lighting bands, church events, weddings, fashions shows and corporate meetings.  This was in-part due to the fact that I got a part time weekend job at a small, local lighting company.

This really began speeding up my lighting trajectory to professional.

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.

That’s why I began Learn Stage Lighting.

Over the past few years, I’ve learned to really enjoy teaching and listening to you, the Learn Stage Lighting reader, as we work to create great lighting together.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being in the lighting industry it’s this:

You don’t have to have a big budget to create great lighting.  You don’t have to have a ton of experience.  What you do need, however, is some knowledge and tips that will catapult you to lighting mastery!
