Atwater Kent Radio, and New Workshop Dates!


As always, if you’re viewing this in an email, please click the title of this post to see the blog, which offers a better viewing experience.

Many years ago, my brother gave me a beautiful vintage radio. The radio, which used six large tubes, was manufactured by the Atwater Kent Company, of Philadelphia, PA. Here’s an advertisement from those days:


Interestingly, this radio, a “Model 40”, was made the same year as my father’s birth, 1929. Unfortunately, I don’t yet have the speaker which was intended to be used with this radio, so as another compositional element, I decided to use this beautiful old globe, given to me by my friend and fellow light-painter, John Corcoran.

Light painting allows me to render these beautiful vintage objects with texture, dimension and depth, which can’t be achieved with “normal” lighting methods.

I like to say that the workshop is not about making a masterpiece, but is designed to teach a process and a way of thinking about light. I believe that my “Sculpting with Light” process is very transformative, and the images of ordinary objects shot by my students is a testament to that.

If you would like to learn my image-making methods, and much more, there are three ways to take a workshop with me, and we have just added more dates for 2019.
