Blind Light Painter – Pete Eckert

I first ran across the images of Pete Eckert when I was doing research for my eBook on light painting.  The reason I stopped and really studied his photos is because Pete is totally blind!  Not just legally, but actually blind!  I highly recommend after viewing this video that you check out Pete’s website at

Pete also was hired by Playboy magazine, but his images of nudes were considered to be too “artsy”!

Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of Artists Wanted: Exposure 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.

Artists Wanted is proud to present this truly inspiring portrait of the artist.
