Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

LONG SERV­ING Syd­ney-based pro­fes­sional photo sup­plier, L&P Dig­i­tal Pho­to­graphic, has closed its doors af­ter 38 years of op­er­a­tion. L&P was the Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor for a num­ber of brands in­clud­ing Phase One, Sekonic, Pocket, In­duro, Ro­den­stock and Alpa, but over the decades has rep­re­sented many oth­ers, in­clud­ing Pro­foto, Tenba and Think Tank Photo. The com­pany has also been very ac­tively in­volved in in­dus­try events, pro­vid­ing both spon­sor­ships and tech­ni­cal sup­port.

L&P’s de­par­ture had the po­ten­tial to leave a gap in Syd­ney’s pro­fes­sional imag­ing mar­ket, but Mel­bourne-based Specular has an­nounced that it will be open­ing a new show­room in the city. Specular has been closely as­so­ci­ated with L&P and has taken over the sales and sup­port for some L&P prod­ucts, most no­tably the Phase One dig­i­tal medium for­mat cap­ture sys­tems.

Specular’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Rory Shin­ners, com­ments, “We have an 11year his­tory of sup­ply­ing and sup­port­ing some of Aus­tralia’s best pho­tog­ra­phers from our Mel­bourne show­room. Now it’s time to bring our unique of­fer­ing to Syd­ney”. Rory also thanked L&P for its “…long-time com­mit­ment and ser­vice to the Aus­tralian pho­to­graphic com­mu­nity. L&P have been great friends, and their pres­ence in the in­dus­try will be sorely missed”. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit
