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, Profoto is the world’s leading manufacturer of photography lighting systems. We have subsidiaries and distributors in more than 50 countries. We constantly refine and improve our equipment, driven by the same ambition that once drove Eckhard and Conny – to inspire photographers to explore the endless light shaping possibilities of Profoto.
That’s why we build state-of-the-art units with an easy-to-use interface. That’s why we never take any shortcuts when it comes to absolute consistency in output and color temperature.
That’s why some photographers still use the units that Eckhard and Conny built. That’s why the units we now build will stay with you over the years, as you continue to grow.
