An Evening with Miguel Jacob

A Vistek Pro Photography Event

We have a great evening planned featuring
Miguel Jacob

Event Overview

Talk about capturing knock-out footage! In one scenario, picture champions of martial-arts demonstrating their lightning-fast moves. In the other scenario, picture a pro fashion model demonstrating her runway moves. In both scenarios, you have one of Canada’s hottest fashion photographers, Miguel Jacob, capturing the action with his favourite camera and Profoto lighting products. Join us for an engaging, informative evening!

What you will learn

Using simple off-camera flashes, you will learn how to maneuver and light fast-action action, as well as light a stunning fashion model. Through a combination of casual banter and specific instructions you will learn how to capture a series of movements, emotions, looks and gestures.

About Profoto

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. Now, Profoto is the top brand when it comes to professional photography
