Here we have a Profoto ProFresnel Spot! This lighting tool is most often used to create gorgeous movie light or utilized in beauty and product photography.
With all of its amazing features, our client Rene Russo frequently chooses this as his main light source. However, he needed to have it shipped to Utah. After many calls looking for the perfect shipping solution (case), we found out that this Profoto ProFresnel Spot has an unfortunate Achilles’ heel: an 11″ lens that is prone to breaking during transport. No one in town would ship it anymore! Bringing this to Rene’s attention, “NO” wasn’t an option and we continued to seek a solution. Looking at our case inventory, we found the Pelican 0370 Cube case!
Originally purchased for transporting beauty dishes, this case provided serious protection from the weather and rough handling. This case was a critical element that helped this light shaping tool make the safe trip from the SYNC warehouse in Los Angeles to Utah and back!
We love being able to satisfy our clients and SYNC is prepared to go the distance to make sure their needs are met!
