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.

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.

    Tim is our intrepid eCommerce Manager and Web Developer. He’s a former Army Ranger who used to jump out of airplanes, so managing our website, sales data and automated marketing systems is no big thang to him.
