Don Farrall opened Light-Works Studio, Inc. in Lincoln, NE in 1988.  Since then, Don has produced photography for local, regional, national and international clients. Being based in "fly over country", Don had to become well versed in a wide variety of photographic styles, with a wide range of photographic skills.  Fortunately for Don, a nationally recognized Advertising and Marketing firm, Swanson Russell ( is also located in Lincoln.  Since coming to Lincoln, Don has been the main "Studio - Product Photographer" of choice for Swanson Russell, producing award winning work for their clients. 


In 2019, Don added Video Production capabilities to the services being offered by Light-Works Studio, Inc.  Years of shooting stills are proving to be a valuable asset to this new endeavor.  The general activities involved in the production of images, moving or still, involve a lot of cross over activities and skills.  In either case, content is produced to capture attention and motivate the viewer.  Don's relentless pursuit for quality can be seen in the careful attention to lighting, and a genuine desire to achieve the highest quality final product.  Light-Works Studio  has invested heavily in the supporting equipment to achieve this goal.


In 2018, Madison Sobotka started working at Light-Works Studio as an intern.  Madison is currently studying photography at Metropolitan Community College.  As often as possible, Madison is on set with Don assisting with shoot productions, and at times operating the camera.   A review of the

Studio / Crew page will introduce site visitors to Madison and a few of my regular clients.  The Studio / Crew section, also provides a bit of a glimpse of our "behind the scene" activities; check back often for updates on our latest projects.

Since 1996, Don has been a Top Tier Image Provider for Getty images.  Through Getty, Don's images have been used worldwide, and through that exposure Don has received assignment work for National clients including:  Asics Footwear, World Financial Group, and Microsoft.
A review of Don's work will show a high level of attention to detail, and a style that is very clean and precise.  Beyond the basic product work, Don has developed methods for capturing objects and liquids in motion, and this has become one of Don's signature specialties that continues to attract clients from far beyond "fly over country".
