25 years ago, Quest Couch and Heidi Kenny were operating Quest Productions, a company specialising in high-end corporate multimedia.
The still photography required for this type of work necessitated fast setups on location, under a variety of circumstances. These demands led to the development of the LumiQuest line of flash accessories.
“From our very first designs, the emphasis was on simple light modifiers that worked, rather than gimmicks that would sell.”
This mission has led to over 25 different devices designed to solve real lighting problems in the field.
“All of our light modifiers serve specific purposes by combining the photographers’ needs with the basic laws of physics to create simple, effective accessories that work. We continue to listen to photographers’ problems and share their vision … to help them create images that are beyond their wildest dreams.”
October 2010 saw the launch of the UltraStrap – the most secure non-adhesive flash accessory mounting strap ever manufactured.

“LumiQuest is proud of their new Ultra Straps, and wants to put one of the stretchy, grippy mod mounts in every bag. Oh, and if you have not tried one of these yet, you are gonna like it.”
“The LumiQuest Ultra Strap is the most secure way of attaching a light shaper to a small flash I’ve come across … it really works …”
2012 saw the launch of 3 new kits which include the FXtra compact gel holder & coloured gels as well as the UltraStrap:
