Camera & Photographic

Flints Camera & Photographic department holds Fine Camera Auctions twice per year. These sales are very well publicised, with advertisements in all the leading trade publications, social media and at trade fairs. The catalogues produced for our fine sales are in full colour and fully illustrated. We send them collectors, institutes and museums across the world. Furthermore, all of our auctions are available for live bidding, giving you access to the global market. We use www.the-saleroom.com and www.liveauctioneers.com, enabling maximum exposure.

Jonathan Brown heads the camera department and has a long history of being involved in this field. As a result of being a professional photographer, he has an exceptionally high standard of presentation which he carries into his cataloguing. The catalogues produced by Flints are valuable reference works used and trusted by leading collectors and institutes.
