What Our Customers Say

What Our Customers Say

“What can I say, Seawood Photo is the biggest small camera store I know.  I always make it a point to stop by whenever my travels bring me to the Bay Area.

For the last twenty years I’ve found the owner and staff to be friendly, and most importantly, have a true understanding in the mechanics and technique in all aspects of photography.  They have always had an amazing inventory of new and used gear.  It’s always a fun experience to shop there.

My relationship with Seawood has had a strong influence over the years that helped shape my career in photography.”

- Stephen Corley,  www.nicelightimages.com


“I have been a customer of Seawood Photo for over 15 years, and have found the store to be a remarkable, pleasant and at times amazing place to purchase or sell camera equipment. I am a semi-pro photographer and sometimes need reliable technical information.

Graham Law, the owner has been an invaluable source of help in this area.  We are indeed very fortunate to have such a a great camera store in Marin.”

- Mike Phillips


“Seawood is passionate about photography, particularly film photography, and the authentic service they offer is worth supporting their business.  I’ve never regretted buying my cameras from them–they’ve always been in excellent shape and they made sure I was an informed buyer.

I’ve never regretted having my equipment repaired there–they’ve always fixed my cameras quickly.  They’ve returned every call I’ve made to them and advised me on things I was simply thinking of buying (even if it wasn’t from them), just because they want their customers to have what’s best for them.”

Digital cameras are amazing, yet we love old cameras here at Seawood! 

This section of our world is dedicated to those machines, how they work, what you can do with them, and why they are still viable tools despite technological advances in digital photography.
