In Get A Grip On Lighting Podcast’s recent episode, BDP’s head of lighting, Mark Ridler, shares how his love for theatre and the arts has helped steer a highly successful career in lighting design.
Taking much of his inspiration from set design and applying this to a variety of sectors ranging from workplace to retail, Mark explains how theatrical lighting techniques can be translated in the real world.
Mark is an award-winning international lighting designer who leads the lighting profession across BDP. He has over 35 years’ experience and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA). Mark tells us about his fascinating journey from theatre – operating a spotlight – to an international, award-winning, architectural lighting designer. Listen to Mark’s philosophy and, as he says, “the awards will come.”
