Some of the best & fastest lights available.
I am often asked by fellow photographers what flash/strobes I use, so I'll do my best to explain my choice of lighting and my reasoning behind it.
My lighting setup has evolved with the need to stop action. While studying for my undergraduate degree in photography, I was exposed to many different lighting setups, from studio flash and pocket strobes to continuous lighting. I have tried many of them as a professional photographer. At one point, my studio kit consisted of a mix of several high-end strobes as well as many low-end choices easily purchased on Amazon. Therefore, I am uniquely qualified to understand the pros and cons of the many options available to photographers. That's how I fell in love with and came to use Paul C. Buff flashes exclusively.
To better understand my choice of flash, you must first understand the need for incredibly fast lighting to freeze motion when photographing dance. Paul C. Buff strobes are some of the fastest lights in the world, with flash durations as high as 1/13,500 of a sec.
Paul C. Buff, Inc. is an American company with a cult-like following of dedicated photographers that appreciate a quality flash at a price that doesn't break the bank. Paul C. Buff, Inc. engineers all of their flashes in-house and offers a product with the quality and capability of the most expensive flashes in the business but at a price point that is affordable for full-time professional photographers and amateurs alike.

If you are starting with flash photography, I can't emphasize enough that I would steer clear of all the cheap flash brands on the market. There's also no need to spend several thousand dollars on a single studio strobe when you can purchase a quality Buff strobe with all the same features for only a fraction of the price.
