John Bishop Lighting Designer

Welcome to my website.

I am an award-winning, international Theatre Lighting Designer and Professional Member of the Association of Lighting Designers, the Society of British Theatre Designers and Equity.

I live in the beautiful Lake District in the north of the United Kingdom and work freelance all over the world designing lighting for large scale operas, ballets, musicals and plays.

I have created original Lighting Designs for more than 220 productions over an extensive and very successful 35 year career.
At the start of my professional career I also toured Europe for Vari*Lite with Eric Clapton, Tina Turner and Toto.

I have put this website together as an archive of my many Lighting Designs.
I have included my photos and lighting plans and some press reviews for most of the shows but inevitably not for all of them.

I have a large collection of reviews and photos still to add which I continue to do as time allows.

I am absolutely passionate about light and I am also a very accomplished theatrical, portrait and wedding photographer.
