As a long established family business, we are committed to providing our customers with the best customer care possible. Ron Harrison formed the company in 1970, and he is still proud to say that personal customer attention, along with the best advice is the key to a successful business. In his eighties he still maintains an active interest in the company. These are values that we continue to hold, as the key to our success, both in-store and online.

The shop covers a floor area of 245 square meters, and is still located on London Road in Sheffield. Although we have changed premises over the years, we are still within 75 metres of the original shop that Ron founded, forty years ago. The shop is bright, modern and extremely well stocked with all thing photographic, including optical products. We offer a warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome, and we are totally dedicated to offering all our customers the widest possible choice in photographic equipment, at of course competitive Yorkshire prices. We have an enviable reputation within the North of England , and we are determined to extend this to our online service. We are committed to staff training, and with the help of our suppliers we ensure the product knowledge of our staff is kept up-to-date in this fast moving, digital world.

In October 2013 the online side of the business moved into new premises. The new offices and warehouse were needed to continue the expansion of the website, and to hold stock for the store.. Our dedicated warehouse allows the increased number of staff to dispatch your order quickly, easily, and efficiently pick and pack your orders. While our new office space provides our online team with a pleasant working environment and better facilites.

We also have a commitment to limit the company’s impact on the environment. We have managed to reduce our use of electricity by around 20% over the last few years. This has been achieved by installing more energy efficient lighting, including LED’s, better air-conditioning and also by installing 44 solar PV panels on our buildings, with a combined maximum rating of 9.5kw. All electricity used is purchased from a 100% renewable supplier.
