Posted on Feb 12, 2020

We’ve joined forces with Profoto to offer six readers a unique photo experience – and the chance to have your images featured in an issue of PN.


Want the chance to shoot professional models, in a variety of scenarios, using the latest Profoto lighting kit and the support of a Profoto ambassador and Profoto experts? Then Profoto Academy Live is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

This very special event is not limited to experienced studio users but to photographers of all levels, even if you have never shot in a studio before. All you need is an enjoyment of people photography and a willingness to learn.

Our exclusive shoot will take place at a well-appointed professional photographic studio in central England and the Photography News team will be on hand to lend support, as well as record the event for future issues.

The location and specifics of the day will be sent to successful applicants in due course, with the event currently scheduled to take place in late Spring.

Travel to and from the studio is at the applicants’ expense, but refreshments and lunch is provided. The event starts at 10am with wrap-up and a debrief at 4.30pm and departure at 5pm.

To apply for this exclusive photo experience, we’d like to see three of your best people pictures. See the section below for more details.

Good luck!

How to apply

Visit our Profoto Academy Live page, enter your details confirming your skill level as a photographer and upload three of your strongest people images. Terms and conditions apply. Visit our terms and conditions page for more information.

About the Profoto B10 Plus


Profoto’s B10 Plus is a battery-powered studio flash that delivers a remarkable amount of output for its compact size. About the size of a fast aperture telezoom lens and weighing just 1.9kg, the B10 Plus delivers a mighty 500Ws of flash output at full power and you get 200 high power bursts from a single battery. To give you an idea of output, a full energy burst gives an aperture of f/22.7 at 2m and ISO 100 with an OCF Magnum Reflector, and the unit is fully charged and ready to go again in just two seconds.

Equip yourself with an Air Remote TTL trigger – available for Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony – and you can enjoy the shooting convenience of wireless TTL flash and the creative opportunities proffered by high speed sync (HSS) flash. With the trigger comes a working range of up to 100m in TTL and HSS shooting modes and 300m in manual flash. The B10 Plus is fully compatible with more than 120 Profoto light-shaping tools including the OCT range, and works with the Profoto app too, which is available on Android and iOS.

With such an amazing specification in a readily portable package, the Profoto B10 Plus is without doubt a leading light of the modern age.
