Richard Walch Puts the Profoto B1 Flash to the Test


We call the new B1 an off-camera flash, because it is not a speedlight and it is not a monolight. It is a new kind of flash that brings a whole new way of shooting.

It has TTL, so you get a perfect exposure in a flash. It is battery-powered and cordless, so you can take it with you wherever you go and put it wherever you want. Add to that the power, speed and light shaping possibilities that Profoto lights are known for, and you have an off-camera flash that makes great light easy.

Photographer Richard Walch brought a couple of B1 off-camera flashes and two top-ranking BMX bikers with him to a marble quarry in Italy for some serious action shots. Click play and prepare to be amazed.

Hi everyone, I am a freelance commercial photographer and specialize in actions sports/lifestyle imagery. For me it’s all about putting my vision in front of the lens to get unique photos. What makes a photo unique for me is not only the photo itself, but also the way I capture it. This kind of mentality has gotten me dangerously close to the action and into some amazing situations. I have a great passion for action sports, and photography helps me stay close to the action and involved in the industry. Photography is not only something that I do, it’s my lifestyle.
