Lighting Director

Imero Fiorentino was considered by many the father of pro-lighting! He began his career just as television was coming into its own in the early 1950s. He worked on live broadcast with new cameras that were not tested with many light sources, causing more than a few issues to correct. Many of the processes that Immie created to address those issues have become standard methods for professional lighting today. He also created standards for lighting music venues such as concert stages and within theaters. The only list as impressive as those he worked with over the years may be the list of those he has influenced.
