As a Westcott Top Pro Elite photographer, Bruce Dorn has designed multiple innovative lighting tools for photographers. The Bruce Dorn Asymmetrical Stripbank was the first self-feathering softbox available in the industry. Inspired by wedding portraiture, this stripbank is designed with a gradual three-stop light falloff. This creates ideal lighting on his models face while allowing for even highlights for the body and clothing. When positioned horizontally, the Assymetrical Stripbank can also act as both a main and fill light.

Bruce was appointed as a Canon Explorer of Light, a prestigious group of the world’s finest photographers devoted to inspiring and educating the next generation of creative students. He has shot for magazines such as Glamour, Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Architectural Digest, has created commercials for a variety of Fortune 500 companies, and was inducted into the Director’s Guild of America in 1984. As he continues his career as director, producer, and photographer, Bruce has not only dedicated himself to developing invaluable tools for photographers, but has also committed himself to sharing his extensive experiences with photography enthusiasts.
