Studio Lighting Secret for Underwater Photographers [VIDEO]

By John Brigham

We love it when our gear does double-duty - saving time, money, and energy. Take one minute to find out how easy it is to repurpose your Ikelite underwater strobes for studio, indoor, and outdoor photo shoots. 


As you've heard me say many times before, lighting is an excellent investment in your underwater photography equipment. So why not double the value and start shooting your strobes topside?

All you need is an Optical Slave Converter and a 1-inch Ball Mount for Studio Light Stands and you can set your strobe up in a studio environment or on a remote location.

Now you have a very rugged, portable, wireless and rechargeable strobe system that you can trigger using the speed flash that's mounted on top of your camera.

If you have any questions about shooting your strobes below the water or above shoot us an email to

John Brigham is the Vice President & head of product development at Ikelite. He was born with a flair for design and an entrepreneurial spirit as son of Ikelite founder Ike Brigham. He worked his way up in the business and is a natural fit in the R&D side of things. John dives the equipment as much as possible to test product and put himself in the "fins" of the user. You may also find him on the other end of an email or phone call when you reach out for product advice and support. When he's not underwater he's flying drones, setting off rockets, training his German Shepherd "T2", and spending time with his family.
