Our Company History
In 1965 Derek Gardner, a schoolteacher decided to set up a photography business, following his passion for taking pictures.
He became a wedding photographer and set up Derek Gardner Ltd. This company offered his customers good old fashioned service, which we at Tekzone still hold as a key aspect of our company values today.
Derek Gardner Ltd developed and the photography studio started selling equipment to its customers, and this transformed the business into a flourishing retailer which was eventually sold to Debenhams plc.
Walton Cameras was established in 1980 and is still open to this day in Walton-on-Thames.
Today our name has changed, and at Tekzone we aim to continue Derek Gardner’s commitment to offering high quality products at the best prices and continue our dedication to high quality service.
