Matthew Ascough

Currently studying Creative Lighting Control at Rose Bruford, I am a freelance live events technician specialising in lighting. I have experience setting up, programming, and operating lighting and video for a wide range of events including corporate, opera, theatre, dance, and concert.

I have had a passion for lighting since a young age when I designed and operated the lighting and visual FX for a high school performance of Wizard of Oz. I’ve spent the last few years working as a casual technician in Middleton Hall at the University of Hull, working on a variety of events from conferences/talks and classical concerts to rock concerts and dance shows. I am now in my first year at Rose Bruford studying Creative Lighting Control while doing freelance lighting work alongside the course.

Alongside lighting I enjoy photography with the majority of the photos on this site being my own.
