Celebrating our 50th year of trading as an independent photo retailer, we are laying on a whole range of free photo seminars for you to attend with the aim to inspire and teach customers about new aspects of photography they may not have previously considered.
Over the last decade, the Imaging Festival has been a regular fixture on the photographic calendar that photo enthusiasts from all over the country have looked forward to attending, and the entire team at Park Cameras are delighted that the environment has now allowed for the event to be hosted once again.
In addition to this, by visiting on the day, you can get hands-on with some of the latest gear to have been announced, including the Canon EOS R3, GFX 50S II and the compact Ricoh GR IIIx.
The Imaging Festival will be held on Saturday 2nd October at their Burgess Hill store in West Sussex, and Saturday 9th October at their Central London store, located just off Oxford Street.
The Imaging Festival has been carefully curated to suit photographers of all levels – whether you’re a beginner, enthusiast or a use photography to make a living, you will leave the day feeling inspired.
We have two of the largest photographic stores in the country with dedicated areas to allow customers to try out the latest products available on the market.

Visit on the day and they’ll help get your questions answered, no matter how obscure they might be!
Upon visiting the Imaging Festival, it’s also a great opportunity to take a home a bargain as there will be a wide-range of exclusive in store only deals to take advantage of, on both cameras and lenses, but also accessories such as tripods, bags, filters and binoculars.
There will also be a number of talks from professional photographers focussing on various topics including how to give your images impact, how you can try out new genres of photography, and how photography can help with your mental health from top experts such as David Clapp, Glyn Dewis, Chad Gordon Higgins, Ron Timehin, and Paul Sanders.

With so much going on throughout the day, at our Burgess Hill store, we have also teamed up with local charity St. Peter and St. James Hospice to offer refreshments including tea, coffee and some light bites. There will also be the opportunity to enter their raffle and win some fantastic prizes with all proceeds going towards the hospice, who provide expert and compassionate care to adults in Burgess Hill, and the surrounding towns and villages.
We are really looking forward to seeing photo enthusiasts at the Imaging Festival 2021, but appreciate that things are a little different at the current time. However, we have taken steps to ensure that customers, brand representatives and colleagues enjoy their time at the store, but also feel safe and comfortable. We have hand sanitising stations located around the store and are encouraging the use of face coverings when visiting. You can learn more about the procedures put in place at www.parkcameras.com/now-open.
With all this in mind, a visit to Park Cameras on the 2nd October (Burgess Hill) or 9th October (London) will not only be worth it, you'll pick up some great tips and tricks to improve your photography and it will save you money on a range of your favourite photographic kit, too!
