Hello, my name is Natalya Shalneva and I am the founder

"Shadows" light studio.

I’m a practicing lighting designer and artist. For me is important to create  lighting concept not only in the picture, but also to continue the “game” with light in reality, perfectly understanding how and with what to do it.

Synthesis of creativity and technologies

The creative component and knowledge of technologies, many years of various experience and constant study of the market. Visiting and participating in national and international light exhibitions and events, gives the company all the opportunities to constantly improve and create a comfortable light space, satisfying the needs of customers.

The personal support of each project allows to fully realize the plan, from sketches on paper to the implementation, sometimes, of the most incredible ideas in reality.
