Without supporting businesses, organizations like PPSNYS couldn’t exist.
Hunt’s Photo and Video will be the centerpiece of Focus NY 2018’s trade show, and is generously sponsoring two of our speakers – Mark Bowie and Joe Edelman.
 
We appreciate Hunt’s support of PPSNYS and look forward to continuing a long and prosperous relationship.
Without supporting businesses, organizations like PPSNYS couldn’t exist. They support our educational programs, and they offer us goods and services that we can’t function without. They also introduce us to new and better equipment and software we would not otherwise be aware of.
 
Every now and then, we are fortunate enough to create a strong relationship with a single vendor who recognizes that we can really help each other.
And as it is with so many things in PPSNYS, it all began with Owen.
 
About 15 years ago, Owen Kassimir began working with Gary Farber of Hunt’s Photo and Video, which has developed into a mutually beneficial friendship, and a close partnership with PPSNYS. As anyone who attended the Photo Workshop last summer can attest, Gary is a very “hands on” guy, and an enthusiastic supporter of PPSNYS as well as the Professional Photographers’ organizations in each of the New England states.
 
Hunt’s started small in 1889 as a pharmacy / soda fountain in Melrose, MA. In 1952, Pharmacist Solomon Farber purchased the business. His son Jack Farber began building the camera business within the pharmacy. As cameras began to be more available to the masses and interest in photography grew, Hunt’s moved the focus of their business toward photography.
 
Today, Hunt’s Photo and Video is led by Jack Farber’s sons Gary and Scott. Gary began working in the store at age 14, and after getting his degree in business is largely responsible for developing the film business. Now Hunt’s is one of the largest retailers of photo, video and digital imaging products in the country. Their main store is in Melrose MA with another seven locations throughout New England.
With an operation that large, you would think that personal service would be lost – just the opposite is true. You will be well taken care of at Hunt’s, whether it is in person, by phone or even ordering on line at www.huntsphotoandvideo.com.
I asked Gary what makes Hunt’s special. His response: “Family, knowledge and personal experience. We don’t just “sell stuff”, we are enthusiasts and enjoy building relationships.”
