Barkers Photographic has been established in the seaside town of Great Yarmouth since 1914 founded by Mr John Barker. It has been in his family for three generations and in 2012 was purchased by a management buyout. Although in 2017, the retail arm of Barkers was closed, in 2019 we have signed a 2 year lease on a property in Victoria Arcade in Great Yarmouth.
We also offer a lot of non-studio services (eg Event photography, wedding photography, cine and vhs to dvd, negative and slide scanning, photo restoration etc).
We offer a collection and delivery service as well as drop off / pick up points in Gorleston (Just Designed) and Great Yarmouth (Mocha, Regent Street) as well as in Lowestoft and Norwich. You can see our locations here: www.originals2digitals.co.uk/location
We offer a variety of Restoration Services - from simple copying or duplicating an old photo to a full restoration and re colourising photos. We have a number of customers in Gorleston and Great Yarmouth. We can take out backgrounds, take out people and do wonderful other things - just pop in to see some examples.
As well as restoration, we can also convert video cassettes (VHS) to DVD. For slightly older videos, we can also offer conversion to DVD for 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm and 9.5mm. In fact, if there is any format that we don't mention, call us and we will endeavour to find a way of converting your memory. We have a dedicated website for this here: www.originals2digitals.co.uk
Outside of the shop, we offer a variety of professional services, including wedding photography, school photography and we offer a variety of Event Photography services - from Black Tie events (including Proms, Round Table, Rotary and Masonic Ladies nights) through to Football, Rugby, Hockey and other sporting events. We offer printing on site (as well as after sales on line) with prints sizes available from 6" x 4" through to a massive 12" x 8". Our prints come in frames, mounts or folders depending on the event.
Unlike most small companies, we have 11 event printers which means that we can cope with most events, and can quickly rectify problems if there are any issues - which is one of the reasons that we work (or have worked) with companies including: Sainsburys, Shell, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Royal Assembly Rooms, Great Yarmouth Racecourse, The Ocean Rooms, Palliative Care, Great Yarmouth Masonic Association, Pontins, Vauxhall Holiday Camp, Sea Life Centres and so many more.
