About Miguel Jacob
Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Miguel Jacob is now one of Canada’s hottest lensmen.
His portfolio includes high profile clients like FLARE Magazine, The Bay, Sears, Universal Records and Warner Bros., and he has photographed many celebrities including Michael Bublé, Jay Manuel, and Alexa Chung.
He has been an avid and loyal Profoto user since 2005 and is now the PPC trainer for Canada. Miguel is currently based in Toronto.
Profoto was founded in Stockholm in 1968 by photographer and engineer Eckhard Heine and photography equipment retailer Conny Dufgran.
Their relationship began when Conny sold Eckhard a flash unit that didn’t work. Annoyed with the faulty unit, Eckhard went home to invent a new type of flash. He returned a couple of weeks later with a superior unit. A few years after that, Eckhard and Conny exhibited the first Pro-1 generator at the Photokina trade show in Cologne.
It was an instant success. Profoto was born. With a bang. Now, Profoto is the top brand when it comes to professional photography
