Emmy™ Award-Winning Lighting Designer John Gates

John Gates is a Lighting Designer & Consultant with over thirty years of experience in helping clients create attractive lighting for their television, film and special event projects. His work has appeared on almost every domestic broadcast and cable network and several foreign networks. He has lit seven U.S. Presidents, one Pope and other world leaders, won many awards and worked in various film & video formats, including 3D.

Explore the latest LED lighting technology for television and motion pictures with John Gates. As the LED technology continues to evolve, we now have more choices for LED lights with good color rendering, good light output and beam shaping capability. 

John Gates tests various lights for the projects he designs around the world and will share the results of his work and testing while guiding you through many of the LED light choices that might be appropriate for your work. 

A wide range of lights will be demonstrated live and on-camera, including lights that John has used on his projects. We will also be discussing some new LED technology. John is a long-time SMPTE member and Fellow of the society.
