DE Photo Shoots Ahead With Its Regional Reach Event photography specialist open 11 new branches across the UK
August 03, 2005, Press Dispensary. DE Photo (http://www.dephoto.co.uk), the Surrey-based digital sports and event photography specialist, is experiencing rapid growth of its business. Following the launch of its successful franchise operations in the Midlands and North earlier this year, the company has opened a further 11 new branches nationwide, in a move that vastly increases its UK coverage and photo sales.
The new DE Photo branches will be located in Middlesex, Berkshire, South London, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Avon, and Kent and are part of DE Photo's established franchise scheme.
DE Photo has already received over 500 event bookings in 2005, and demand for its on-site photo sales service is increasing. Events covered by DE Photo's photographers include football, rugby, athletics, motor sport, golf, gymnastics, netball, horse and dog shows, martial arts, and special events such as award ceremonies and charity balls.
Event organisers can use DE Photo's service to raise additional revenue by offering photo sales to their attendees, who can view and buy images on the spot at DE Photo's mobile unit. Photos can be printed on-site in less than a minute or ordered from http://www.dephoto.co.uk after the event and despatched by next day recorded delivery. At each event, the photographers take between 500 and 2,000 photos, giving customers a wide selection of shots. DE Photo has more than 230,000 photos in its online database, where they are stored for posterity.
Mike Moore, managing director of DE Photo, comments: "During 2005, we've significantly increased our capacity and added franchisees to our team who have proved a great asset. And now the opening of 11 new regional branches puts our professional and affordable photography service in reach of an even wider target audience. It seems that event organisers can't get enough of us
- so we must be doing something right!"
