About us

Hi there, and thanks for dropping by our blog.

We also have a facebook page where you can follow us.

I’m Scott – owner and operator of Mainline Photographics – official importer and supplier of high quality photographic supplies and accessories, in Sydney Australia.

Mainlinephoto is like the old corner shop… friendly, helpful and offers old style service…

Mainline Photographics is a family run and owned business that has been serving the photographic trade for nearly 50 years. Started in 1970 by John, it has now been in the family for two generations.

Our focus has always been on delivering quality products which work, bringing them into the Australian marketplace, and then providing the best back-up service possible.

Over the years our business has gone through several changes; transitioning from its days as a chain of retail stores into one of the few Leica specialist stores, and then toward its current format: importer and wholesaler coupled with a direct online arm. Whilst our business model may have changed over the years, one thing won’t, and that is our passion for photography and our customers.

We are not your “usual camera store” – in fact we don’t even sell most of the big brands of digital cameras and lenses. But what we do sell is a very high quality, niche range of the best accessories to enhance your photographic experience.

Our focus is on you.

We sell our products direct online or through a select and highly specialised set of stockists.

We also have a sister business in New Zealand, Progear Ltd, and almost all of our products are available from them, so if you are located in NZ then please visit their site here.


Scott and team.
