P & G Photographic Centre – Service with a Personal Touch

home top

Quick Introduction
P & G Photographic Centre is not new to many professional photographers in Singapore. After all, they have been in the photography business for over 30 years now. Trust me, 30 years is a long time in the photography industry. Managed by the Phan Brothers (Andrew Phan & David Phan), the friendly duo are famous with their craft. Their skills & expertise are well-known across the industry & well-respected by both veteran photographers to beginners.

Advice is Free, Honesty is priceless
Although most camera repair shops offers free advices & checking, how many are honest advices?
P&G is reputated to be one of the best used camera shops in Singapore to get real world advice on photography equipments.
I am sure many of you who had visited P&G before can relate to that. One thing I personally like about P&G is that they do not beat around the bush just to inform you that your camera is going off to meet its maker soon, or the fact that your terminally-ill lens has only 3 more shoots to permanent retirement. What they saw or discovered from checking your equipment, they will tell you directly while offering the best available options at the same time. Unlike other shops that will try to pressure you into selling your “dying” gears to them or repairing at a cut throat price, P&G will offer you options and then leave it to you to decide. Such honesty is priceless and very much commendable by today’s business standard.

One Stop Solution Centre
In today’s fast-paced society, convenience is an important factor when it comes to photography – especially for those that makes a living out of clicking shutters. Every visit to P&G always have me smiling without fail. For the simple reason that every time I walked in with a problem, I walked out having the problem solved or at other times, I simply left my “problems” behind only to return when P&G had solved it – professionally. You see, P&G is indeed a one-stop solution centre as I called it. From repairing cameras & lenses, they also buy in used equipments, sells a great comprehensive lot of inventory ranging from vintage cameras/lenses to the latest models in the market. And that’s not all, amongst those equipments on display, there are many rare & limited editions items that many of us dreamt of owning them one day. In short, there’s something for everybody!

Expertise, Experience & Engineering
Ask P&G how many cameras or lenses have they dismantled in the last 30 years, likely they will smile at you and their minds wanders into lala-land. Their experience in camera equipment repairs can easily make it into any book of records for the highest number of cameras/lenses (of many brands) – dismantled & repaired. While many photographers out there will take this 3 decade-long experience for granted – citing that this is a norm for camera repair shops, I would like to clarify and add that – yes, this may be a norm, but how many actually does a good job too?
All the vintage cameras that I had sent in, all came out of P&G in tip top condition and became fully operational after that. To sweeten the deal, P&G even offers warranty for the repaired item and that gave me (and many others) an added confidence and a peace of mind.

Best of all, P&G also does an excellent job in modifying cameras & lenses! Using their knowledge on camera engineering, they also offer modification services for your equipment to serve your shooting needs and working requirements. Now, pause a second and think, who else does this in Singapore? No one except P&G!

Beyond Business
It’s just like friends meeting up every time I visits P&G. The Phan brothers are also widely known by the industry for their friendliness and hospitality. I enjoy chatting with them on every visit. They are two of the very few humble people in the photography industry who are willing to share their experience with beginners, share industry updates to the regular customers, simply helpful and just being themselves. Talking to them makes me feel that as if I had known them forever (although I’d only started visiting P&G in 2010).

As I write, I am already looking forward to my next visit to P&G. You should check them out too.
