Light & Motion is the leader in portable lighting innovation since 1989.

We are a dedicated team of creative professionals, with over 30 years of experience developing the best lighting for cycling, scuba, photography and cinematography. We understand all the ways lighting enhances and elevates our experience doing and recording the activities we love. 

As an American manufacturer, we demonstrate through our daily work a commitment to building products with integrity. We have been designing and building our products in Northern California as part of our commitment to invest in our people and our community.

Our lights are designed by users considered the best at what they do and finished with a deep appreciation for design and build quality. Your satisfaction, delight and safety are our priority and are reflected in our design choices, material selection, testing rigor and warranty support.

StellaPro Lights from Light & Motion are designed for still and moving pictures. Our brightest lights power up to 10,000 lumens. All StellaPro Lights are lightweight, weatherproof and very compact. Perfect for location and studio applications. All lights can withstand up to a 1 meter drop test. All lights can weather any elements. A few of the models can be completely submerged for underwater imaging and/or used topside. 

Light & Motion is excited to offer APA members (at the Supporter level and above) a 30% discount for our line of camera lights (StellaPro), and our other product lines that include lights for bicycling and SCUBA diving.
