Clamshell lighting is a favourite of headshot photographers. It is a simple and forgiving way of lighting that produces stunning results, which keeps your focus on your subject rather than moving your lights around. The Portrait Illuminator takes this beautiful lighting to the next level with its unique crescent-shaped catchlight. Our big and soft 33" Rapid Pro Beauty Dish is the Strobepro staff pick to pair with it.
In order to get your light overhead without crowding your camera position, we recommend a boom stand for your key light when using the Portrait Illuminator. The Portrait Illuminator itself does best with a stand that can get low to the ground, such as our 7' 2GO Light Stand. Choose either or both options from the dropdown menus.

Love the set-up! Great results for headshots, simple to set up. Very satisfied.
I love the fact it is high quality, easy to assemble and dismantle. I do feel this will have a huge return of investment! I am pleased with the excellent communication and shipping as well!
It was fun to set up and i did some self-portraits to test it out. A great addition!
Haven’t received these items yet but the company is worth leaving feedback early. Last year I changed out my light stand bag, strobes, softboxs, and light stands including 16' ROTATABLE BOOM LIGHT. The quality of all these products are remarkable and the customer service is outstanding!! I haven’t used any of there competitors since I found this A+++ company. It’s totally worth the wait from Canada to Florida!!
They have good products at fair prices and outstanding customer service. I'll definitely buy from them again. In this particular case I bought the combo 33" Beauty Dish / Softbox & Curved Reflector (they call it "Portrait Illuminator"). The beauty dish is solid, good material (white reflector on the inside, comes with double diffuser and honeycomb grid) big enough to give beautiful catch lights and small enough to be portable. The plate is removable, so it can be turned into a nice softbox, The curved reflector is quite big and gives great catchlights (if placed in the right position). Also, it comes with two fabrics: one silver and one white. It's quite easy to assemble / disassemble (must be careful, though, not to force the seams when stretching the fabric!). The items come in two very nice bags for easy carry to location - I found that a really nice addition! I contacted them about some small imperfections (one of the seams wasn't reinforced properly and popped) and I've got a replacement shipped to me overnight - that was impressive!
