Aputure was founded in 2005 by a team of inspired photographers and filmmakers who wanted to create high-quality content, but struggled with steep cost of equipment needed to do so. Determined to create professional-grade equipment at an affordable price, they started Aputure: the first company to provide truly affordable camera accessories with the quality and functions needed to fully realize any creative vision.
Today, Aputure sells in over 70 countries with offices in the US and Asia. We specialize in a wide variety of accessories for both digital filmmakers and photographers including, but not limited to: LED Lights, Monitors, Shoulder Rigs, Follow Focus Systems, Microphones, External Flash Units and Lens Adapters.
As a part of the creative community, Aputure continues to develop for ever-expanding needs of budding artists and professionals alike. Each member of our team has felt the burning desire to bring a creative vision to life so no matter your project–we’re here to help.
Among the employees at Aputure are actual photographers, using our very own products in the field, studio, at home, and on assignments. We’re here to talk about all aspects of photography – from news to reviews to photographer profiles to the ever-changing world of creative work. Of course, we’ll also keep you updated on our latest and greatest products, as well as what’s going on with our company – from our excursions to our office happenings to even the odd interview of one of our employees every now and then.
