Bloody hell! He's coming. Again! Denis Smith is a one man phenomenon. He is coming all the way from South Australia to help you create some light painting magic. You've never met a person with more energy than this individual nor a person more determined to make sure you have the time of your life on their workshop. He can paint in thin air, turn a pitch black room into a masterpiece and more importantly, he can teach you how to do it on his incredible Light Painting workshops. He’ll make you laugh. He’ll make you cry. He gets BFOP better than anyone we know. We couldn’t be happier to have him back. Legend.
CURRENT BFOP STATUS:
This year Denis will graduate to Veteran BFOP status and to be honest, with aspirations like his I’m actually a bit scared.
Like a moth to a flame, Denis gravitated towards the BFOP festival and made his mark as BFOP’s most enthusiastic presenter.
In 2017 Dennis spent most of the year in a pitch black room dancing with torches… it wasn’t until he emerged that we saw the light

2019 BFOP WORKSHOPS & PRESENTATIONS:
Light painting will always, without fail, fill our nights with love, light and laughs and Denis returns this year with an opportunity to get hands-on experience in this wonderful art! You’ll learn the basics of this incredible form of photography with hands on practice and play with Denis’ personal light painting kits. This is an awesome opportunity to put the tools in your hand to have a go at something you’ve likely never experienced before. This workshop is perfect for beginners who have never tried light painting before. This will be fast paced, and judging by last year, you might be sore in the morning.
If you did the Light Painting workshop at BFOP 2018, or you have done a bit of light painting, this is the night for you. Denis will teach you some more advanced techniques including Light Painting Portraits (which by the way is absolutely epic!) Take your light painting and long exposure photography to another level. This workshop is bound to be a festival highlight so jump in quick!!!!
