All in all, it was an excellent article and a positive for the industry.
I'm not sure about the validity of one quote, however.
"But once you have the basics down, all you really need to do is take a few design courses and you'll be an artist in no time."
The article was one of the better surveys of the landscape lighting industry that I have read due to excellent input from several of our folks.
I think the point of that quote was to encourage those who are thinking of entering or are just beginning in the outdoor lighting field. There are basice that need to be learned in lighting design. Once you have an understanding of those the levels of design that one can aspire to are are only limited by imagination/creativity.....some physics, electrical engineering and gravity :). I have seen it over the years develop in our orginazation as well as other places such as this very chat room.
The online magazine is here. Check out the article. I believe this is the correct link
