New to Profoto
Welcome to us and the world of light shaping
Since 1968 the world’s best photographers have been using our ﬂashes 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 photographers can use our products thanks to the launch of battery-powered, compact flashes 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 and make the best products.
Get started with light shaping
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'.
