BiographyEdit

At the age of 16 Vince began his first job after seeing the combined effect of lights, lasers, smoke and moving mirrors at a Genesis concert at Knebworth (UK) in the 1970s. He has since worked his way to the very top of his profession. Vince’s big break came when he worked as lighting designer on a 1993 Erasure tour. Since then, he’s designed for R.E.M., Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, Phil Collins, Steps, Jamiroquai, Travis, Basement Jaxx and Kylie Minogue, including her recent Showgirl tour which boasted a massive 250-plus ‘intelligent’ lights, all with their own processors controlled, via hubs, from Foster’s lighting console. He has also designed lighting the Duran Duran on Broadway shows in November 2007, and the band's Red Carpet Massacre Tour.

Vince approaches light design as an artform, viewing lighting as a poetic medium in which to work. His aim is to work to the highest visual standards, technical expertise and integrity, creating interesting work involving all forms of lighting and materials.
