Light Painting Photographer Tim Gamble, a.k.a. Fade To Black Light Art, has been creating his inspiring light painting work since 2013. Tim creates other worldly images that look like they are from a scientific fantastic future world. Tim's imagination shines through in his incredibly complex light painting images. He loves to shoot in tunnels and in the middle of nowhere but its important to note that many of the complex worlds he creates are made in the simple setting of his kitchen!

What is your favorite part about the Light Painting Art Form?
Capturing an idea and moment in time which essentially didn't happen. It'll never get old.

What is your favorite Light Painting Brushes attachment?
The Black Fiber Optic Brush is by far my favorite Light Painting Brushes attachment. So versatile and paired with a good torch can give so many different effects. I couldn't do without mine.
What or who inspires you and your light painting work?
The Optical Nirvana group on Flickr Inspires me to improve and push to be a better light painter. As for an artist I'd have to say TCB who's body of work is nothing short of mind blowing.
What is one piece of advice for someone who is just starting out Light Painting? The same as I was told when I started. Find your own path and don't follow the crowd. Most of all have fun.
