Showcases / Camera Centre: Take great Up-Helly-Aa Pictures

Create your picture products using one of the five state-of-the-art Kodak Kiosks with staff on hand to assist.

Camera Centre is Shetland’s very own specialist in everything photographic, just what you need to take great shots of Up-Helly-Aa. Established for over 30 years, the company has been an innovator, bringing a host of new products and services to the Islands.

A Kodak Express store, Camera Centre is recognised as one of the best outlets in the UK. This outstanding achievement has been driven by the staff and management’s determination to always remain at the forefront of technology.

Earlier this year Camera Centre was purchased by long-time Manager, Ben Mullay. Besides being a well known professional photographer, Ben has been instrumental in leading the company into an exciting new era which includes online photo prints, photo decor and gifting products.

Cameras and accessories have always been a speciality. Recently Camera Centre became an accredited Fujifilm camera dealer. This joins their comprehensive range which includes Kodak, Sony, Sigma and Canon. Their buying power means pricing will always be competitive with stores on the mainland and even many web deals. Ben Mullay encourages all islanders to always ask for a quote locally before buying elsewhere.

Signifying its commitment to bringing the very latest technology to Shetland, Camera Centre recently invested in new photo print equipment and kiosks. The professional photos, enlargements and photobooks this produces cannot be matched by home prints. Consequently the company has seen a huge increase in customers printing in-store and online.

The best part about choosing Camera Centre is that all photo products are produced right here in Shetland. From canvas, through to photobooks and photogifts, your order is ready within days – some even within the hour. 

A great deal of the Camera Centre’s work is helping preserve people’s memories through photography. Scanning old family photos, restoration – even saving and organising more recent digital images is a speciality. Their experts recommend Picture Keeper – a unique device that enables anyone to find, save and store their most precious photos.

Ben Mullay and his team understand that not everyone can make it in to Lerwick. That’s why they developed a comprehensive website where customers can buy equipment, print photos or create a wide range of photo products. Ordering online is easy as many satisfied Island customers will attest.

From passport pictures through to the latest cameras – indeed everything in the imaging sector, talk to the friendly folk at Camera Centre in Commercial Street. You can also check out and order their products at
