“I’ve been blessed to combine my two greatest passions – photography and veterans. To me this isn’t work, it’s a calling.”


Stacy began taking portraits of veterans in a local VA hospital while she was recovering from combat injuries she sustained as a military combat photographer in Iraq. She didn’t know it then, but this project would come to be called the Veterans Portrait Project and grow into a passion born from an innate need to tell someone else’s story by creating beautiful images. 

As with most passion projects, Stacy never anticipated where it would eventually take her - the fact that she was telling veteran’s stories in a local VA hospital was enough. However, as her need to capture images for the project grew, Stacy began traveling throughout the United States and even went as far as the United Kingdom to capture her images. In the end, Stacy went to over 50 locations and captured more than 5,000 veterans’ portraits, creating an anthology of history image by image, veteran by veteran.

She didn’t have too much gear at the beginning – just a Nikon camera, a few lenses, and a handful of Nikon Speedlites. As the project matured and moved around, her need for lighting equipment that was both portable and versatile grew. Stacy experimented with a variety of light shapers and lights to see what gave her the most amount of flexibility. She eventually settled into using four Elinchrom BRX 500 compact strobes and three different light-shapers: the Rotalux 39” Softbox, an Elinchrom 14x35” Strip Softbox, and an Elinchrom 8” Standard 50 Degree Reflector. These tools allowed Stacy to creatively tell the story of each veteran that she photographed and it’s clear they’ve served her well.

Whether it’s standing in a local VA hospital or packing up her Elinchrom Lighting Equipment and traveling thousands of miles to tell someone else’s story through her images, one thing has always remained consistent. To her, this isn’t work, it’s a calling.

    Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon

    EL19367

    The Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon represents the latest evolution in Elinchrom's venerable wireless ecosystem. It combines compatibility with three generations of transceivers and flash heads with cutting edge features like Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec two way visual feedback and TTL with Manual Lock.

    Two Way Visual Feedback Interface
    The large LCD display of the Skyport HS features two-way control via a Visual Feedback Interface that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. The individual strobes show up automatically on the screen, and users can control each light's power level and modeling lamp settings directly from the Skyport transmitter or on the strobe itself, which instantly shows the updated power settings.

    Hi-Sync and HSS
    Go beyond the X-Sync of your camera with two different flash synchronisation technologies; Hi-Synch and HSS. Hi-Sync is optimised for power and while HSS is easier to use and more consistent. The Transmitter Pro uniquely integrates both Hi-Sync and HSS so photographers can simply access sync speeds up to 1/8000s to freeze motion, overpower the sun, darken backgrounds, or use a wider aperture for a shallow depth of field.

    Hi-Sync is only achievable with Hi-Sync enabled flash heads and the Transmitter Pro must be used in manual mode while HSS only works with TTL enabled units with the Transmitter pro in either manual or TTL mode.
    Note: both technologies may be used simultaneously when the Transmitter Pro is in manual mode. (ex. ELB 1200 with Hi-Sync + ELB 500 TTL with HSS)

    Impressive Wireless Range
    The Skyport Transmitter Pro has 20 channels and 4 groups that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode, and a wireless range of 656' outdoors and 196' indoors. Users can instantly distinguish what sync mode they are in since the backlit display glows green for normal sync mode, and red for speed sync mode.

    Compatibility
    The Skyport Transmitter Pro is compatible with previous generations of Elinchrom flash units including the EL- Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems and the integrated EL-Skyport modules for the BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB series. The Skyport Transmitter Pro adds synchronization capability and two-way control functionality to all Elinchrom lights with EL-Skyport capability.

    User Updatable Firmware
    Designed to be a future proof, users can update the firmware of the Transmitter Pro via included mini usb cable. Current Skyport Plus HS owners can update to full Pro functionality via a free firmware update on Elinchrom.com
