Let There be Light…Is what he believes in...
It was not very long ago when the events industry
of UAE found a new talent in Dubai. The talent of a young Lighting designer named Sonu. He started out as production crew
and made his way with diligence and hard work to where he is today. He has been in the Events Industry for over 7 years. He’s
known to almost all the Rental, Production, TV, Threatre, and corporate companies not only in Dubai but also in neighboring
GCC countries and overseas.
He has been an active spark in Lighting Events for some time now and has managed to bag the
title of The Young Achiever of the Year 2009 by the Sound & Stage Magazine. He cherishes this title
with pride and has his vision set on higher places.
Sonu is an LD who is
truly obsessed with his work; once he saw his potential in lighting events he never looked back or thought of any other career
no matter how difficult the economic situation was as a freelancer in the market. He has no qualms about working hard or getting
his hands dirty with menial work to get the desired effect he wants. Very often you would find him on top of the truss trying
to focus his lights himself or trying to fix the cables so that all is perfect.
of his quick learning abilities, creativity, tact to teach and quickly solve technical issues, he was recruited by MA Lighting
Germany to represent MA Lighting in Dubai. He has become one of the youngest technical support crew for the company, and since
then has been the representative for MA lightning in Middle East and India. This role allows him to share his knowledge and
expertise with peers in the industry. This also gives him an opportunity to mingle with likeminded people in his industry
and share war stories about shows done by them.
As we all know Dubai has a very limited season for the events industry and he was soon introduced to the television
field. He is proud to say that he has been the Lighting Operator for the most award winning television show in UAE called
the Prince of Poets and Million Poets. He started lighting the television show in 2009 and also Mahaba Awards which also won
the title of Best Art and Cultural event in 2009 by Middle East awards. He is currently
working on projects of providing enhanced, creative and more meticulous lighting designs.It is true, that success has a way of making one want more and more of it. Sonu
has come a long way and intends to go further.Thanks for reading a brief about my career in the industry.
