About David Honl

David is a photojournalist and entrepreneur. David lived and worked in Turkey for five years, and often travelled to Iraq to cover the war for magazines including Time, National Geographic, The Financial Times, People Magazine and Newsweek. He became frustrated with the amount of lighting equipment he had to carry, and realised the need for a lighter, more effective system – so he came up with his own brand of lighting accessories. Often copied, it has never been bettered.

“Photojournalist David Honl has covered some of the most important and dangerous stories of our time” – Popular Photography Magazine

“It’s not often that a range of products comes along that changes the way photographers work. The Honl kit has done just that!” – Digital SLR Magazine

“David Honl: A 2010 Mother Of Invention” – American Photo Magazine
