Working with a Lighting Designer has many benefits.

Professional Lighting Designer Caprice Carter’s specialty is keeping abreast of the most cutting edge lighting technologies on the market and finding clever (appropriate) applications for them. Every space is different and, therefore, requires it’s own approach for a lighting solution. In this Small Firm Forum, Caprice Carter addresses functional as well as aesthetic aspects of Lighting Design, and will detail how this can enhance the architecture and magic of the space.
