About us

Profoto is the leading company in light shaping systems for professional photographers around the world with a growing turnover of around 700 MSEK. Today, we have subsidiaries in New York, London, Tokyo, Paris, Hamburg, Toronto and the Nordics and over 50 distributors worldwide.

Profoto was founded in Stockholm in 1968 by photographer and engineer Eckhard Heine and photography equipment retailer Conny Dufgran. Their relationship began when Conny sold Eckhard a flash unit that didn’t work. Annoyed with the faulty unit, Eckhard went home to invent a new type of flash. He returned a couple of weeks later with a superior unit. A few years after that, Eckhard and Conny exhibited the first Pro-1 generator at the Photokina trade show in Cologne. It was an instant success. Profoto was born. With a bang.

Today, our products are used by the best in the industry. Whether it be on a billboard or in a fashion magazine, there’s a good chance that the image you are looking at was created with the help of our lights. But even though we continuously refine and improve our equipment, we stay true to Eckhard’s and Conny’s ideals.
