In 2012 Julian Cash created the group
The Aurora Light Painters, a performance troupe
who played for the first time ever on "America's Got Talent". They recieved a standing ovation from the screaming AGT audience in Austin, texas. Of their performance, Howard Stern said "I've never seen anything like this. I loved it!". Julian's portrait book
The People of Burning Man
became an instant "cult classic" with dozens of five-star reviews on Amazon, despite having no advertizing or PR.
Julian Cash creates fast paced light painting portraits at events. At the San Francisco Music Tech Summit, he photographed 63 people in just under 7 hours, averaging about 6 1/2 minutes per person.
When a complex light illustration is needed, Jackie (Julian's wife) jumps in to draw on request. Eso (the star from the Aurora Light Painters) busily picks the best pictures and puts them into an instant slideshow.
The fun part is making the photo match a particular topic. Sometimes, the more outrageous the request, the better.
Here are examples of what people requested and the images they got.
