Adaptable lighting, using LED technology. Premium aesthetic and technical design for practical application in every day life.

A lot has happened since we opened our doors in 2015 with our first successful kickstarter. Working mostly alone and from his garage, our founder Samuel Granger brought the Adaptalux Studio to life to solve the problem of lighting macro photographs – an issue Sam was dealing with in his own photography endeavors.

Since then we have continued to improve our LED photography lighting range, as well as setting in motion many future (top secret) developments to expand our horizons!

We are a small UK based company and we pride ourselves on being able to produce premium quality products for our worldwide customer base. We are thankful for the support of each and every one of our customers as we couldn’t make these awesome products without you!

Our Mission

Our innovative design philosophy is at the core of everything we do. We strive to create high-quality, customisable and adaptable lighting products to raise the standard people expect from contemporary LED lighting.

We exhibited at the Photography Show in Birmingham for the second year running with an even bigger stand. This year we took even more stock and carried on building on our success found at the show in 2017. Again, it was a pleasure to meet so many photographers who use Adaptalux Studio and was great to welcome many more customers.

We accomplished another successful Kickstarter campaign. This time we set out to raise money for our latest additions to the Adaptalux Studio, the Adaptalux EFX Lighting Arms. These Arms bring even greater degrees of creativity to our customers, bringing UV, Laser and super bright white Lighting Arms to our customers. We raised £20,342 to bring these products to life thanks to our amazing community.

March 2017

We exhibited at the Photography Show in Birmingham and sold out within the first 2 days! It was a pleasure to meet all of the photography enthusiasts, professionals and industry insiders that attended the show. Some had already heard of us, some came to learn about our macro lighting – we had a fantastic response to our products and will be back next year!
