We Make Awesome Photography Easy

Our mission is to make awesome photography easy, by making tools that get out of the way of being more creative.

We believe photographers can better improve their craft when technology is no longer a mental barrier to feeling, seeing, and expressing. Photography comes from the heart, and behind every magical photograph is a perfect symphony where art and technology become one.

Kickstarter

The Birth of Magmod.
Our Kickstarter History.


In April 2013, Spencer Boerup woke up one morning (after shooting a long wedding) with an idea of gelling flashes instantaneously. After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (and money!), Spencer began prototyping his ideas for MagMod. After multiple rounds of tweaks and tests, he launched MagMod (with the MagGrip, MagGel, and MagGrid) on Kickstarter to raise funding for mass development.

MagMod reached its $35,000 Kickstarter funding goal in less than 5 hours, and completely obliterated this goal by raising over $210,000 in 30 days. MagMod was officially born, and ever since then we’ve been developing new products and expanding the company.

On our one-year anniversary in October 2014, we returned to Kickstarter to launch the MagSphere, MagBounce, and MagSnoot. Again, photographers responded in droves and helped us raise over $310,000 in 30 days with enthusiastic fans in over 90 different countries. Since 2013, MagMod is widely accepted by photographers worldwide as the fastest, easiest, simplest, and strongest speedlite modifier system ever created.

    Spencer

    Spencer

    President

    Spencer invented MagMod after a long and successful career as a wedding and portrait photographer in Tucson, AZ. He currently manages product development for MagMod, and his brain is full of wicked awesome ideas that we can’t wait to bring to life. While he’s passionate about photography, his favorite role is at home as a husband and father to two adorable daughters. A serious car enthusiast, Spencer loves spontaneous road trips. He also enjoys serving others in his community and church and has the best singing voice in the office.

    Travis

    Travis

    Wholesale Director

    As B2B Sales Director, Travis manages relationships with MagMod’s distributors. He’s got mad people skillz, and if we had a Team MagMod yearbook, Travis would win every vote including “biggest kid in the group,” “easiest to scare,” and “most likely to convince an invading alien army to call off an attack.” He enjoys spending time with his family, especially as a youth basketball coach (Go, NYS Tucson Tar Heels!). He’s also an accomplished wedding and portrait photographer with hundreds of shoots under his belt.

    Trevor is our Operations Team Leader. A walking Swiss Army Knife, he can do (and does!) just about everything. Every team wishes they had a Trevor. From managing inventory, logistics, trade shows, and everything in between, Trev is our go-to guy for getting stuff done, and winning at Mario Kart. Even though he’s partially color-blind, Trevor’s a talented photographer and cranks out some impressive images. Trevor and his wife welcomed their first child in January 2016.

    JJ

    JJ

    Growth Team Leader

    JJ is awesome and leads our Growth Team. A former full-time Youtuber, he’s the dude behind a lot of the early MagMod videos. Ask him about his job, and he’ll tell you that “MagMod is the best place to work, EVER!” You know he means it since he has the distinction of having held the most job titles of any team member since joining the company. In the past, JJ worked with Travis as a second-shooter and also as a wedding videographer. He and his wife welcomed their first daughter in July 2016. (There was something in the water that year.)

A Tucson native, Kendle assisted Spencer for years on photo shoots, is the world’s best aunt and holds a degree in Fine Arts. She has an incredible talent and a budding business as a cake artist. Seriously, she could be on a TV show for this and would win everything. (Hey, Food Network: have your people call our people!)
