Who am I? I am Dan McCreight
I am from Sperry, Iowa, I love starry skies, bodies of water yada yada yada… I am sure you could care less.
Next Question.

What makes me tick? Good question. There are a lot of things that trigger a response in me. If you ask my girlfriend she would probably tell you that I am all over the place. I get great ideas that sidetrack me daily, but one thing that really does make me tick is photography. There is one kind of photography that really trips my trigger and that is light painting.

In 2013 after graduating from college I began my photography business shooting portraits, weddings, and commercial work. During all of this my passion for shooting at night has just grown stronger.

I feel that your senses become more keen and alert when lugging a camera around in the dark.

Follow Stimulight the Night and see the adventures Johnny and I partake in and enjoy the ride!

Who am I? I’m Johnny A!
I love long exposure photography and the endless possibilities that light painting creates.

I discovered light painting when I was a sophomore in college and was instantly hooked. I began creating different tools with various lights to try to create unique images of art using my camera as the canvas, and light as my brush.

There are many light painters who inspire my work and who push the limits of what has been done or can be done. My goal is to contribute to the light panting community and to help spread the word of this amazing art form.

Teaming up with the talented Dan McCreight is the first step to this goal, so follow Stimulight the Night and enjoy the ride!

How it All Started

Johnny and Dan have teamed up after years of shooting light painting as a hobby to create Stimulight the Night. The two attended Iowa State University together were they studied Graphic Design. They both had an early passion for photography. One night Johnny invited Dan to explore some tunnels below the belly of Ames, IA and the rest is history.

The two believe there is a bright future in light painting and they would like to share their passion to as many people as they can.
