Light Painting Artist LAPP-PRO was made up of two men, JanLeonardo Woellert and Joerg Miedza. Together they are the fathers of modern day Light Art Performance Photography or LAPP. Light Art Performance Photography differs slightly from standard light painting in that the camera is capturing an artist’s performance. The artist’s light movements are generally choreographed and rehearsed prior to the exposure being taken. In 1996, Joerg began shooting long exposure photography and JanLeonardo began experimenting with night photography in 2003. It wasn’t until 2007 that JanLeonardo discovered light painting, when he found himself trapped overnight inside an industrial complex. During his overnight stay in the complex he used his camera and LED lights to create his first light painting images, soon after that Joerg came onboard and LAPP-PRO was born. They have had great success with their Light Art Performance Photography, LAPP-PRO are sponsored by Canon, Zeiss, and LED Lenser. They create light painting imagery for commercial clients and in 2010 they worked with industry giant Nike to create an ad for the World Cup.
