Name: Darren Pearson
Who has influenced you and your work?
My family, my life, my friends… and many, many photographers
What are some interesting projects you’ve worked on?
A light painted animation about the ghosts of Pacman, a light-painted campaign shoot for Barack Obama before he won the office (was never publicized), and various band photos
What are some of your upcoming projects?
More road trips definitely – I’d like to illustrate the Native American god of fertility ‘kokopelli’ surfing ‘the wave’ in Arizona. (Google that for sure. It’s a trip.) More art shows, possibly around the theme of the afterlife - I’d like to put together a book at some point in the near future on what happens to the energy in our bodies after we pass.
Do you have any advice for people who want to get into light graffiti?
Yeah, peep this tutorial I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeTzUzPfleU. Take a lot of pictures - it’s trial and error mostly. Remember that anything that produces light is fair game! That means prisms, 3D glasses over the lens, gels, flashlights big & small, sparklers, fireworks, any flammable materials for that matter, etc. They all have different looks… Combine them together!
Why do you love spotlight?
Because you never have to replace the batteries and they’re tough as nails
Who do you want to give a shout out/big ups to?
Shout out to my family for their love and support. It means everything.
