This is a documentary about my Light Painting Photography work. This 7 minute film explains what light painting is, how I discovered the art form, and why light painting is so significant in my life. This turned out to be a much more personal piece than I originally expected it to be and I had some difficulty in releasing it. After much debate I am glad that I did release the film in its original form. I think if you follow my work hearing my story can help people to better understand my passion for Light Painting and why this art form has been so significant in my life. I have received a lot of good feedback after the release of this documentary and I hope that it can continue to inspire people, or at least interest someone to give Light Painting a try.
