Sam Squires

London, UK


Sam is a Lighting Designer and Programmer based in London UK, and is currently studying at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance in Sidcup, Kent. He has been involved in the industry for around 5 years, originally through amateur dramatics and building up to be in a professional venue. He loves how every production is completely different from the next, but you can take the same technical knowledge you have from previous experiences and apply them to a new situation. Ever since being young, Sam found himself going to the theatre or a music concert and during a performance, looking up, looking at all the lighting and the technicians. Sam is currently studying BA Hons in Creative Lighting Control.
