About Us

Park Cameras was established in 1971 in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. For over forty years we have forged a reputation across the photographic industry as one of the top independent photographic retailers in the UK, serving the needs of all photographers, from enthusiasts through to professionals, through the very highest level of customer service.

In 2008 we radically altered our business approach, creating a bespoke, purpose-built showroom which successfully married the very latest instore experience with our staff’s unrivalled level of photographic knowledge and customer care.

November 2013 saw another milestone in Park Cameras history as we set about opening our brand new store in London, run with the same ethos as Burgess Hill we're well on our way to becoming London's best camera store.

We aim to replicate a consistent, unrivalled level of customer service across our various purchasing platforms ensuring that, no matter what your buying preference happens to be, you can always expect the very highest level of service.

Specialist Pro Dealer

As a Pro-Dealer, our knowledgeable staff receive regular training to ensure that the buying advice and technical assistance we can offer is second to none - for both photographic beginners and pros alike. In addition to this, our Pro-Dealer status helps us to ensure that we continue to only supply UK stock to our customers and ensures that we are amongst the first to receive stock of the latest digital cameras, camcorders and accessories in the UK.

Touch and Try Showrooms

Burgess Hill - just outside Brighton

Since its Grand Opening in 2008 by none other than David Bailey, our Showroom has gone from strength to strength. Adopting a fresh approach to photographic retailing, our Showroom adopts a ‘touch and try’ ethos, designed to put the very latest photographic products and technologies into the hands of the customer – the ideal way to choose the right product for your needs. Home to over 7,000 imaging products, including 250 within our branded ‘touch and try’ zones, we have made it our aim to ensure that we can provide a product and/or service solution across both imaging input and output. With over 50 of the world’s leading brands all under one roof, including the likes of Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung to name but a few. With a huge selection of cameras, lenses, photographic accessories, studio lighting, printers, scanners and software we are confident that, combined with our staff’s excellent level of product knowledge, photographic solutions to meet every need can be found all under the one roof.

In addition to the very latest products available at Park Cameras we also offer a range of added value services. Our award-winning Fujifilm processing lab combines traditional and modern forms of mass photo printing, complemented by the presence of instore self-service kiosks and extended printing options, such as canvas prints, all managed and supported by a dedicated section of our team.

Further to this we are able to offer vital services such as a range of sensor cleaning options as well as acting as the conduit between the customer and the manufacturer when it comes to dealing with repairs and faulty items.
