Both David and Derek achieved high accolades with in the area and also the BIPP and MPA (Masters Photographers Association) following the high standards set by William.
After David retirement in late 2000 Derek invited his son Andrew to join him in running the business.

Andrew has been involved in photography from a very early age and can always remember having a camera in his hand. Gaining knowledge from helping both David and Derek in his teenage years. Andrew went on to study art and photography during his college years. Achieving his BIPP qualifications at an early age of 22. From the age of 24 Andrew left the business to gain experience abroad, only returning in June 2000.
