enlight photo was founded in 2006 by husband and wife James and Naomi Madelin, to bring an idea James had for a new photography lighting accessory to market. In 2009 the orbis Flash launched to global acclaim. Since then, enlight photo has broadened its range with more of James’s inventions. In 2014, Naomi’s first invention launched. Multi-lingual and multi-nationality, James and Naomi are now based in Bristol, UK, where they work at enlight photo with their small core team.
