My name is Jake Brookie and I am the owner of Retro Cameras Limited. I supply second-hand photography equipment through online auctions and am a licenced second-hand dealer. In the last decade, there has been a revival of analogue photography- instant cameras are in vogue, 35mm film is in fashion and even Super8 movie film is back with a brand new camera! I have collected over 1,000 cameras from glass plate models to the first generation digital cameras so can accurately describe each camera to its prospective owner.
I moved to Hawkes Bay in 2011 and absolutely love it here! Retro Cameras Limited has partnered with the Art Deco Trust to deliver a vintage camera rally event for the 2018 Art Deco Festival and I am always looking for ways to be involved with the local community. Using a camera made of cardboard for the first time is far removed from today’s digital cameras- but it is a fun hobby and an art form!
As well as owning and operating Retro Cameras Limited, I am an educational contractor who supplies environmental education resources and programmes in Hawkes Bay. I have an interest in marine conservation and a passion for learning more about our native wildlife- something that I am keen to pass on!
I am excited to be part of the Hawkes Bay Chamber of Commerce and look forward to meeting you all and working together for business in Hawkes Bay.
