“I've been using Photoflex products for nearly 20 years and I actually still have the first OctoDome that they produced! That speaks volumes to the longevity of a great modifier. Whether in the studio or out on location, I've come to rely on my Photoflex gear to accomplish whatever challenges are thrown my way. “
