A Vision of Creative Education



We offer creative education as well as creative problem solving to help you find your voice and refine your message.



Creative Lighting is a philosophy of image making that sees light as the primary force in imagery. It’s about learning to see and think about light as a photographer or cinematographer does, and the craft of image making as a painter would. It is an approach to image making that favors the artist’s vision over technical knowledge.


We are experts, innovators and visual storytellers. Our goal is to teach you how to paint with light creatively and create emotional, inspiring imagery of architecture.




Twelve years ago, Damian Fennell put his fine art and sculpture career on hold to join Cityscape Digital, a leading architectural visualisation house. He and Nikos worked closely together during Nikos’ five years at Cityscape, and Creative Lighting was born out of their partnership. Damian is passionate about image making and the play of light and dark.


Nikos Nikolopoulos is a visual storyteller who loves teaching and lighting. His unique cinematic approach to lighting is shared in the CGI community all over the world. He believes that inspiration can be found everywhere and is particularly passionate about the ethereal nature of the morning light and magic hour.



The focus of this Masterclass is not only to give you the tools and knowledge to read and understand the importance of lighting, but also the skills and confidence to master your lighting and scene setup in any scenario or software. Nikos Nikolopoulos breaks down the science of light and will show you why it's important to make light and color a driving force behind your image making process.


Our vision is to help you with design communication and translate your ideas into powerful images. We believe that knowledge is to share.
