My name is Jason D. Page and I am a light painter. LightPaintingPhotography.com was born out of my passion and obsession with light painting photography. This is an educational website for the purpose of sharing the art form that I love and hopefully inspiring more people to light paint.
I have been a photographer since the late 1990’s and even before that I have had images in my brain that I wanted to create and could never figure out how to do it. That was up until a winter night in 2004 when I bumped my camera while taking a long exposure of the ocean. When I checked the exposure I saw the moon had made a streak across the sky, in that moment it all clicked for me. Immediately I began to try to draw with the moonlight in the sky; from that night on I have been a light painter.
In my quest to learn as much as I could, I began researching and documenting everything I could find about light painting photography. In 2009 I started seeing a lot more interest in light painting online. It dawned on me that I should share all this information I had compiled to help the art form grow, so I began building LightPaintingPhotography.com.
I contacted all of the greatest light painters from around the world, some of which I had become friends with and some I had never spoken to. I let them know that I was working on building a website for the promotion and progression of light painting photography and that I wanted to include their works and biographies on the website. Most were very enthused! It took a little over a year to gather the artist and compile all their information.
I launched Light Painting Photography in late 2010. Since then it has been an wonderful success. I never dreamed it would be as popular as it has become, nor did I see foresee the relationships I would get to build with people all over the world. All of the work that I put into building and running this website has been paid back to me by the friendships I have been able to forge with many incredible light painters around the world and from the random thank you e-mails that I sometimes receive.
Please don’t forget that I am a light painter first and foremost, not a web designer or journalist, so you web geeks and writers will probably find many mistakes on the site….. If you have suggestions or just have a question please send me an e-mail. If you would like to see more of my light painting work please check out my website jasondpage.com or my profile here on the site. Thank you so much for visiting and PLEASE spread the word!
