Elliot Baines

Hi there! Thanks for clicking the learn more button! My name is Elliot Baines and I am an award-winning lighting designer! I started lighting when I was only six years of age and I first did lighting at Rios in Bradford which has unfortunately shut down now. I have been doing lighting for a while! I can’t ever think of a day where I haven’t thought about lights!

After almost a huge 10 years of experience, I have explored the industry in and out learning expert and professional lighting consoles starting from Chamsys to Avolites. I have used Avolites for quite a while now and I know my way around the console. I have worked with huge clients starting from working on the Ben Phillips tour, Hawklords, Jimmy Cliff, Wolf359  and much more!

I have also worked on some of the biggest festivals I have worked on is starting from Glastonebury Festival in 2014, Shambala from 2017 to present, Boomtown from 2018 to present and Bearded Theory. Sadly not all pictures make it to the site but now we have upgrade our social media equipment, you will see a lot more very soon!

I love lighting and it has been my passion my whole life! People always tell me “Elliot, do you think you ever going to do something different in your career or eventually get bored of lighting?” and I don’t think I would ever work as anything else or get bored of lighting. I have always been interested in lights generally when I was young around three! That sound very hard to believe but I used to just stare at lights, I absolutely loved it! And so then, I used torches and incense sticks in the fireplace and mess about!

Now, I have achieved so much and I wanted to thank everyone so much for all your support! I am absolutely amazed at how far I have come and almost ten years of being in this industry! I can’t thank every single person enough!
