About Us

We are UK retailers of photographic accessories, studio equipment and backgrounds. Based just outside the Lake District in West Cumbria, our love for photographing our beautiful countryside eventually led us to establish our photographic business.

We enjoy our job and pride ourselves in delivering the very best in customer service. All our stock items are genuine high quality products sourced entirely from the most respected UK photographic distributors. To our customers, that means getting the best products delivered quickly with the comfort of knowing you are dealing with a UK company.
