About us

Profoto is more than a brand. Profoto is more than the world-leading light shaping products we make. 

Profoto is dedicated to making every image the best it can possibly be by helping the creator bring the very best quality of light to the image. And when you consider there are literally billions of images taken every single day, you start to truly understand the full extent of our commitment to light shaping excellence.

That dedication and passion have been imprinted in our DNA from the very beginning.

50 years ago, our founders Conny Dufgran and Eckhard Heine resolved to make the very best flash for the very best photographers, and they succeeded. That’s a standard that we don’t only aim to maintain, but to surpass.

Because we believe that light is the indispensable heart of all image creation, no matter what the camera, no matter what the situation, the ability to create amazing images is directly linked to the ability to master light shaping.

That core principle is the key to enabling a world filled with incredible images and the purpose of every single light shaping tool we make.
