The Magical Art of Light Painting with David Gilliver

RPS Digital Image welcome David Gilliver who has agreed to present his Light Painting Talk to us. David is regularly creating new work and it features in this talk, and this has not been seen by any camera clubs / photographic societies to date.

Date of the Talk:

Wednesday April 24 2024

Time of Talk:

11am to 12.30

Prepare to enter a world where surreal light-sculptures inhabit familiar landscapes. David's colourful imagination will be on full display during this presentation. He will be discussing in detail both his inspirations and the technical considerations he makes when creating this style of work.

Over the last 15 years David has amassed one of the largest collections of Light Painting tools on the planet and he will be discussing what camera settings he uses, as well as covering what tools can be used for creating different effects on different shoots.

Forget photoshop and the editing process in general for the night – this is all about what a photographer can accomplish through the magic of long exposure photography when combined with a sprinkling of imagination (and a little patience) 

This talk will be recorded and made available after the event.

About David Gilliver

David is a respected professional photographer and artist who specialises in macro photography (his ‘Little People’) and long-exposure photography (the art of ‘light painting’). His work has received some very welcome attention over the years which has led to him becoming involved in some very exciting projects all over the world. Highlights of the past few years include working on bespoke commissions for Adobe, Lexus, ThreeUK, Sony and many other brands.

In 2018 David took the plunge and became a full-time Photographer and Artist. As well as regularly exhibiting his work, the backbone of his business is centred on running Creative Photography Workshops which he teaches to fellow photographers, and in late 2018 he also started travelling the country and teaching his Workshops in schools across the UK.
