Louis Pang is an international, award-winning photographer based in Malaysia. On the Profoto Blog he has previously written about his different shoots. Now he is back with some behind the scene images from a Corporate Shooting in a shopping mall in Borneo.

I was tasked to photograph Dr. Raymond Yu, CEO of IMAGO, the swankiest shopping mall in Borneo. My goal was to walk away with three different shots. The versatility of the Profoto B1, power-cord-free, all-in-one package of hardware makes it a great light for location shoot.

Rising Light is an article series highlighting promising photography students from all over the world. This month we introduce Sylvana Burns, at the ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Sylvana Burns has spent the last 3 years learning everything she can about the art of photography as a student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Her interest in photography began while taking snapshots on a family vacation in Africa, and the mystique of picture taking has only grown since then.

Sylvana applied to several schools but fell in love with the Art Center College of Design after taking a tour of the facilities and its surroundings. By day’s end, she had canceled all of her upcoming appointments with other schools and she hasn’t looked back since.

Profoto b2 lighting for adventure weddings

Charleton Churchill is an explorer, adventure and a destination wedding photographer. In 2015 he did a series unique weddings shoots on Mt. Everest, just above Basecamp. Here are his own words about the Mount Everest project.

I love to travel to adventurous locations with my couples, from engagement sessions in northern California where I live, to weddings on Mt. Everest. What’s important to me is carrying light and powerful gear, enough to carry on a hike. That is why I use both the B1 and B2 Off-Camera Flashes for my adventures. If I’m hiking or I need less weight, I pack my B2 Off Camera Flash, like I did on this year’s Everest Base Camp wedding. It fits in my bag just fine. For the image above, which was an adventure engagement session, I used the B1 Off-Camera Flash for extra power, just in case my vision morphed into something even darker and more dramatic. I had scoped this location earlier, so I didn’t need to hike but 30 yards down from my vehicle.

What do you do when you’re stuck in a rut and feel that your work no longer represents you or what you stand for? Photographer Filip Cederholm experienced that recently. So he decided not only to do something different, but also to use his creativity to make a difference. 

Before changing his path, Filip Cederholm from Sweden had a successful career as a commercial photographer with many big international and Swedish brands on his list of clients. But after spending years zooming in on people’s faces to remove pimples and wrinkles, he started questioning what he was doing. He asked himself: could I do something else? Could I use my creativity differently to make a difference?

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.
