This Friday 9th and Saturday 10th December 2016, CameraPro Newstead is unveiling its innovative new store, which has doubled in size and now includes a 'touch and try' camera station and café-style collaborative workspace for photography enthusiasts.
The exciting two-day launch event is highlighted with interactive workshops and informative presentations facilitated by ambassadors from high-end industry brands such as Nikon, Canon and Fuji.
There will also be a fantastic array of in-store entertainment, food trucks and even live lizards and snakes for a 'Reptiles and Wildlife' photography workshop!
CameraPro managing director, Jesse Hunter, says the refurbishment is focused on creating the perfect destination for photographers to work, shop and socialise.
"The new store will be so much more than just a camera shop," Jesse says. "We're hoping to create a hot spot for members of Brisbane's photography community to work, either individually or collaboratively."
Beyond the collaborative workspace provided in the store, Jesse believes CameraPro Newstead's real point of difference is the 'touch and try' camera station, which provides photographers of all levels the reassurance they need when investing in their new camera via professional lighting and a pop-up photography studio to trial the products on offer.
"We want our customers to choose the right camera," Jesse says. "They need to feel comfortable with the entire device, whether it's the weight, interface or just the location of the buttons".
"To make this possible we have designed the store to be as photographically pleasing as possible to ensure any test shots they take truly reflect the ability of their new device."
CameraPro Newstead is located at 232 Arthur Street, Newstead.
