Ask the expert: lighting

Put your questions to lighting expert Stephen Cannon-Brookes
Should your museum invest in LED lighting?

What impact will the new SLL Lighting Guide for museums have?

How can daylighting also meet conservation standards?
From November, Museum Practice is launching a new monthly feature called Ask the Expert.

Every month readers will have the opportunity to put their questions on a particular issue to an expert in that area.
The first expert is architectural lighting consultant Stephen Cannon-Brookes, director of Cannon-Brookes Lighting & Design.

He specialises in designing high-quality lighting systems in museums, historic buildings and art collections throughout the world – such as the Center for British Art, Yale; the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; and the east wing of the General Staff Building at the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg.

Share your questions in the comment box below or email them to by 27 October. The questions will be published online in MP on 15 November.
