About the Store
PHOTOSHACK is proudly New Zealand owned and operated.
It is run by a Multi Award winning New Zealand professional photographer of 20 years shooting experience and his qualified and experienced team.
We take great pleasure in introducing people to photography by educating and removing the “mystery” that sometimes surrounds making images and video with products that are pleasantly priced. Our team constantly strives to bring the best products on to the market in terms of value and quality.
Most of our products are sourced direct from the manufacturers which means you get the best deals.
