Lighting is meant to enhance what the Artist is trying to convey musically to the audience. Although we all have access to the same tools of the trade, it’s how he use’s these tools to develop multiple layers of lighting. He reveals depth and dimension to truly create a dynamic show for the Artist and audience.
His years of experience working with some of the top Artists in the industry, brings a wealth of knowledge that very few have. Understanding the Artist’s needs, their music and what light they want their fans to see them in, can make the show spectacular. Knowing the right way to light someone for the cameras is critical in today’s shows. Knowing camera angles and working with the Video Director, the lighting effects can have a dramatic effect for the screen when both are in unison.
Every design is unique to the Artist depending on scale, venues, budget and interest of the Artist. His years of touring in all types of venues across the world from theaters to stadiums, gives him the foresight to plan ahead for variances. Working directly with the Artist, Management and Production Manager is the key to success for a tour to run smoothly and effectively.
