BRIESE Lichttechnik

„We can make it better“

(Hans Werner Briese)

Experts say about him, he would be the shining light of photography: we are talking about Hans Werner Briese, photographer, engineer and entrepreneur from Hamburg. From frustration over the "muddy" Studio light of his time the successful fashion photographer and graduated physics engineer started developing his own reflector. The trick: the light source is on a movable axis in the reflector. The focus reflector was born- a quantum leap for the photography. From now on, studio light was suddenly "crunchy" like sunlight, while individual adjustable.

"HW" had this unique patented and perfected it in his own company. His invention soon became an insider´s tip. Until today, Briese lighting is famous for individual and high quality lighting in the area of film and photo productions. Many well-known photographer like Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Anton Corbijn, Greg Gorman or Peter Lindbergh  work with Briese.

Also inimitable: E-focus- the remote controlled focusing unit which allows to control a total of eight reflectors from the camera position- for an ultimate precision and atmospheric lighting.

Followed by further development of the Focus. A new patent has to be applied and the results are 4 new reflectors: Facer, Focus 111, Focus 115 and Focus 130. The Focus 115 is outstanding: focusable over 5 f-stops it offers you a unique spectrum and becomes an indispensable tool in lighting technology.
