“I’m a commercial and fashion photographer who enjoys capturing images that pop and tell my story with peak moments. Most of my work is predominately shot on location and the Dynalite Uni400 is my strobe of choice. It’s robust design, compact ability and consistent temperature output always delivers. Over the years I’ve used all the major strobes out there but my affinity for the Dynalite system speaks volumes. In the studio or out in a dingy dark alley with some new up and coming artist, my Dynalite’s always perform in a dependable manner providing results that are consistent and accurate which makes both myself and my clients very happy when I see the images. My creed has always been to exceed the expectations of my clients and with the help of my Dynalite strobe equipment I can boldly uphold this statement with the utmost confidence.” -Manny Cabo
