so many high streets are filled with characterless multiples that rely on self-service rather than personal human contact.
however, there are still a few independent beacons shining in bishop’s stortford; and photosound is one of the brightest. photosound is an independent photographic retailer with surprisingly high stock levels and an even higher level of staff expertise.
we know how to use all of the cameras and lenses that we sell and we enjoy passing on that knowledge to our customers.
in addition, we are part of the kodak express network of independent photographic finishers. this means that you get the best of both worlds when you order prints and picture gifts – your order is handled by an experienced individual whilst being backed up by the worldwide kodak brand.
photosound can be found at 20 bridge street, bishop’s stortford, herts cm23 2jy.
