On Stage Lighting is Free
On Stage Lighting is full of genuinely useful, unique and free stage lighting information that has helped many people in their quest to learn more about the subject including console programming, moving lights or traditional lighting design. I’ve never viewed OSL as a one person site, but the fact is that 95% of the stuff here is written by me, drawing on over 20 years of professional lighting experience.
The quality of content at On Stage Lighting is on a level that you would normally expect to have to spend £££s on buying a stage lighting textbook. I’d like to think that access to the site was a must have for anyone learning lighting design and technology. And hey, it’s free too?
As well as the website here, what you don’t see is that I also spend a lot of time helping readers personally with their questions via email, Facebook etc. as well as through the comments on the site.
I enjoy it!! But is does take my time and money.
I trust On Stage Lighting readers to make an appropriate donation if my knowledge or insight as helped them in to gain more understanding of a complex subject.
Articles do not write themselves, servers and web development all have a cost, both in time and financially. Since 2007, I’ve put countless hours into creating and maintaining On Stage Lighting and have written the majority of the articles, drawing on my years of professional experience to help you, the interested reader.
Without the advertisements and donation income, On Stage Lighting wouldn’t be able to provide great stage lighting related content for free.
How much is 20+ years of stage lighting experience worth to you?
