The Hunt’s Shopping Experience

As a major supplier to the consumer, professional, educational, law enforcement and government markets, Hunt's maintains a well-stocked inventory of photo, video and digital imaging equipment from every major manufacturer so you'll have plenty of options from which to choose.

Three generations of Farber family ownership have established Hunt's as a trendsetter in the imaging equipment industry. Begun as a pharmacy in 1889 and acquired by pharmacist Solomon Farber in 1952, Hunt's began building its camera business during the 1950s under the visionary leadership of Solomon's son, Jack. As interest in photography grew, Hunt's began shifting its emphasis away from the pharmacy business and into the business of cameras and accessories. By 1993, imaging equipment became Hunt's primary focus.
Led today by Jack's sons, Scott and Gary, Hunt's proudly serves a diverse audience of individual, corporate, educational, law enforcement and government clients as one of the country's largest retailers of photo, video and digital imaging products.
