  • “Awesome company that offers outstanding professional lighting tools to get the job done. They have the best customer service and they stand behind their products. Einstein, Alien Bees, CyberSync, Vagabond, fast set-up octaboxes, strip lights, softboxes, and beauty dishes from PCB; they all work great for me and my photoshoots. I am happy to recommend them and their products anytime!”
