Occasionally, something comes along that changes everything, opening new doors to creative possibilities that were previously out of reach.

Introducing the Profoto Pro-10. It’s the perfect fusion of breathtaking speed and the sort of incredible power that makes it possible to think and create bigger.

This is, quite literally, the fastest studio flash ever made. Having the ability to freeze a moment captured at 1/80,000 of a second is incredible in itself. But the real magic of the Pro-10 is the power to also generate enormous light output in the blink of an eye. So regardless of how much light you need, you’ll always get a faster flash duration.

Also the recycling time between one flash and the next has never been shorter. The Pro-10 is fast enough to easily match the fastest cameras even when the light output is set high. All of which makes it easier to capture the perfect moment by shooting in bursts.

The controls are minimal, easy to handle and illuminated to simplify workflow in a dark studio environment. And you can add AirTTL, which also includes High Speed Sync (HSS), to your workflow toolbox.

Ultimately the Profoto Pro-10 is so much more than the world’s fastest studio flash – it’s your imagination set free. It’s the speed to exceed.

Spanish photographer Roberto Garver got commissioned to shoot some images for Real Madrid C.F. and Brazilian national team player Marcelo Vieira’s social media accounts. He took the opportunity to test some technical and conceptual ideas with different Profoto generators. This is his words about the experimental shoot.

The shoot I did with Marcelo was somewhat improvised. As you might imagine, the agenda of a famous footballer is pretty tight, and we had to plan the shooting with less than a day in advance. I was requested to take some pictures form Marcelo’s social media accounts. Knowing that he is a generous and easy-going person, I thought I ask him if we could play around a bit and execute some technical and creative ideas I had wanting to try out. I wanted his cheerful nature tom really come out with these images. And it did.
