Brighton and Hove Business Awards LogoPress Release:

MPB Photographic’s Managing Director Matt Barker walked away with the Best Young Entrepreneur Award, at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards (BAHBAs) 2008. Being a previous runner up in two categories in 2007, the judges were particularly impressed with the continual growth of MPB in the last year and how Matt’s dynamic approach to running the business has made 2008 an incredible year for MPB Photographic.

Now in their fifth year the BABHAs are one of the most recognised business award schemes in the south east. The Young Entrepreneur award is a particularly prestigious award, designed to reward young people who have a sense of vision and determination to create a business that is completely unique.

MPB Photographic, founded by Matt Barker in 2006, has grown to quickly become one of the market leaders in the UK for used photographic equipment, with a particular emphasis on Canon & Nikon digital SLR cameras and lenses. Through combining traditional values of photographic retail with dynamic e-commerce, MPB Photographic have taken the market for used photographic equipment in the UK to a new level.

MPB Photographic still remains the only website where users can be 100% assured that all stock levels are completely live and up to date, that condition descriptions of used equipment are accurate and all photographs of used stock are those of the actual items for sale. MPB have made purchasing, selling and part exchanging photographic equipment a fast and simple process, whilst maintaining some of the most competitive pricing in the industry today.

MPB will be continuing this growth path in 2009 with the launch of their best website to date which will have a brand new look, improved functionality and a vastly increased product portfolio.

Commenting on the award Matt Barker spoke of how thrilled he and the company are, "Everyone at MPB is completely delighted with the acknowledgment from The BABHAs. Although perhaps the award is designed for one person, the growth of MPB has been a complete effort by all the team and the award is a great recognition of everybody’s hard work and determination to drive MPB forward."
