About Craig Burns

Meet Craig “Burnie” Burns…

Craig Burns – Burnie, as he’s known on set – didn’t become the go-to lighting guy in Orange County, Calif., overnight. His journey in the industry started at age 50. After putting in a decade of hard work, climbing every rung of his profession’s ladder and learning everything he could about working on set, he started collecting lighting gear piece by piece until he had enough to fill several trucks.

With five large lighting trucks of his own, Burnie is now a premier lighting professional in southern California who is hired to work on commercial sets large and small across the country and internationally. His work can be seen in a variety of documentaries for channels such as Animal Planet, the History Channel and others.

Burnie is now ready to share his knowledge and tell you how to get into the media business… specifically as a lighting professional. His book, No One Talks About LIGHTING the Elephant in the Room, is a tell-all tale that lays out the steps and pathway to success in his industry. There is no other book like this on the market today and likely will never be another. Burnie wants you to be as successful in your career in lighting as he is; he wants you to be the best “self-producer” you can be. Armed with the extensive information he provides in this book, you can go as far as you want in media, one of the most-sought professions in universities today.
