Bentley Meeker Creates a Unique Brand of Party Enhancement

There's a good chance you have never heard the name Bentley Meeker before, but if you're the type of person that regularly attends upscale Hollywood galas or parties at fancy New York hotels, there's a chance you've been privy to his work.

Bentley Meeker is the President and creator of Bentley Meeker Lighting & Staging, a company dedicated to creating unique and upscale lighting for major events. Meeker began his lighting career by chance, when, at the age of 14, he began learning lighting techniques from veteran still life photographer Peter Vaeth. Soon after, he parlayed his knowledge of still life photography lighting into a career as a lighting man on major motion pictures, television shows, and commercials.

Now, 20 years later, he's one of the most celebrated lighting and staging men in the world. Bentley Meeker's services have been used by a veritable who's who of Hollywood and entertainment, including Oprah Winfrey, Eddie Murphy, Bill Joel, Chelsea Clinton, and Clive Davis.

After all of these incredible accomplishments, Bentley Meeker is releasing a book that offers a searing insight into the importance of lighting as a mood-setter for any event. "Light X Design: 20 Years of Lighting" by Bentley Meeker is available for purchase now. Take a look through the gallery to see some of Bentley Meeker's most memorable work.
