Tell us about yourself
In 1988 I started working in a small shop in Hove that specialised in selling new and collectable Leica equipment. After six years I moved to a company in Worthing selling mainly Minolta cameras.
Whilst working there I became very good friends with Anthony Sinfield, who is our resident Training Manager here at Park Cameras.
In 1997 I teamed back up with Anthony and started working for Park Cameras and I've been here ever since. Digital was still in its infancy but we embraced this and the market has grown ever since. In just this short period of time we have seen a lot of changes in the photographic industry and it's great to work in such an evolving market. It really makes my job very exciting.
Martin, what does your role involve?
My job involves the smooth running of the showroom floor on a day to day basis, keeping our staff well informed of sales promotions and special offers that our customers can benefit from. Training our staff is key to the success of Park Cameras, so I ensure that the team are kept up to speed on the latest products by delivering training and coaching them. We continually strive to make the Park Cameras experience pleasurable, informative and worthwhile every time.
What's your favourite photographic product at the moment?
To be very honest all new products are exciting, but the new Nikon D4 camera is my favourite product at the moment.
Tell us an interesting / funny fact about yourself
Well not funny but strange! Being in the trade for so long I have a habit of naming a camera, brand and model number, just by the sound of the shutter, and not by sight!
