Welcome to the world of light shaping
Since 1968, the world’s best photographers have been using our lights and light shaping tools to create stunning, iconic images. For a long time, we were known for heavy-duty studio lights. Today, more and more talented image creators can use our products thanks to the launch of battery-powered, compact lights with TTL. At Profoto, we are wholeheartedly committed to lighting – or light shaping, as we like to call it. Our mission is to push the boundaries, make the best products and share our knowledge to inspire all those who are passionate about creating great images.
What’s light shaping?
We believe light is the essence of every image. The word “photography” literally means painting with light. Our products allow photographers to do exactly that – paint with light and create images rather than just capture what is already there. We call this “light shaping.”
