Happy Holidays From Lighting Design By James Bedell

2012 has been a wild year for many of us. The tragedy of Hurricane Sandy should give us all pause and help us to reflect on what's truly important. Personally, I couldn't be more thankful for my family, friends and all of the wonderful opportunities 2012 has brought my way. It's been a big year for my little venture. My first complete calendar year as an independent lighting designer has seen some incredible high points. This year I was fortunate enough to...


Burned the bacon one morning...this is what emerged. Just in time for the holidays, I've together a coffee table book full of photos that I took with Instagram. It's called Lightstagram and the idea behind it is simple. When I design projects I try to draw on inspiring lighting I encounter in the real world. Whether that's the sunlight reflecting off skycrapers or the shadows leaves cast in the early morning. 

The book is available at blurb as either a print on demand soft/hardcover book or a downloadable PDF. I hope you consider it for yourself, or as a gift for the interior designer, architect, or creative in your life.

Project of the Month - Press Event for the Carlton Hotel

The Carlton Hotel is a revered NYC institution. Like all great organizations it's always in a state of renewal, so when it came time to announce the creation of four themed suites throughout the hotel, the team at DKC Incite looked to me to "punch up" the existing lighting and help create a lasting impression for editors and members of the press. The event was an enormous success as visitors entered the amazing billiard suite, then snuck away into the speakeasy before meeting a broadway diva. On a tight timeline we put this event together to rave reviews.
