25 with Charles Stone - President of Fisher Marantz Stone
58:02Mr. Stone’s parents sent him to the Harrisburg Community Theatre, hoping to keep him out of trouble while Charles was trying to become a singer and trombonist in a rock band. And there, at the stage door, he was transfixed by the Magic of Light: Lekos and Fresnels, colored gel and dimmers – emotion and passion. From that day, whether on, off, or backstage, at science fairs, or writing term papers in school, it was always about the power of light to change the human experience. His parents continued to worry for another 25 years that he might never have a career. Mr. Stone received an AB in English and a special Certificate for Lighting Design from Princeton University in 1976. He is Lighting Certified by the NCQLP, a LEED AP BD+C, a Fellow and Past President of the International Association of Lighting Designers, a member of the IESNA, serves on the IESNA Lighting for Outdoor Public Spaces Committee, and serves on the Project Candle advisory group at Penn State University. Mr. Stone’s Traveling Light speaking tour visits universities and professional conferences around the world, and has landed in 20 countries since its founding in 2005. In addition to lectures, Charles regularly serves as a leader for educational and public outreach workshops including Ålingsås, Sweden, and cities worldwide with The Lighting Detectives. Mr. Stone joined FMS in 1983, became President in 2003, and has led design teams on hundreds of successful and award-winning projects with loyal and satisfied clients on five continents. In this weeks Light Lounge Charles and I speak about the challenges in the lighting design industry, how to set up a culture for success and what is important in life to be successful. https://www.fmsp.com - You can also find the Light Lounge Podcast on Anchor, Spotify, Apple Podcast.

24 with Women in Lighting - by Light Collective - Sharon Stammers and Martin Lupton
36:02Light Collective consists of Sharon Stammers and Martin Lupton who have both been involved in the lighting industry for over 20 years. Based in the UK and essentially architectural lighting designers, their portfolio of work has diversified in many different directions – light activism being one of them. Women in Lighting is an inspirational digital platform that profiles women working in the field of lighting design. It aims to promote their passion and achievements, narrate their career path and goals, celebrate their work and therefore help elevate their profile in the lighting community. There is a need to increase the profile of successful women working in lighting to help encourage, support and inspire the next generation. There is no doubt that women currently have a lower professional profile despite making up approximately 50% of the lighting design profession. Let’s change this. I was fortunate to sit down with Sharon and Martin on a rooftop in New York and get their insights about their work and women in lighting.
