About Us

Photoprints is owned by Gary and Alison Ashton.  

We are a family business and have added Photoprints to our long established Shoe Repair business, One Step Ahead on Auckland's busy Ponsonby Road.

With photography being Gary's hobby, we noticed that a lot of stand alone printing businesses had closed down.  We had a few long chats with Alison's cousin in Sydney who is a certified Hahnemuhle printer and framer.  We spent some time with him to discuss the idea of adding printing to our existing business.

After some great information and a long list of what we would need, we decided to start Photoprints and run it from our premises in Ponsonby.

We started to get asked about framing the images we were printing.  After another round of calls to Sydney and another trip we decided to add framing to the services we can offer too.

We have since brought all the equipment needed and are now offering a cost effective, high quality custom framing service alongside the photo and canvas printing.

So please either pop in, or send us an email with any questions and we will be happy to help.
