In 1972, Craig Stevens, followed his passion for photography and his entrepreneurial instinct, and opened a photo shop inside his father’s pharmacy in Newcastle. Craig was at school at the time, and so the hours of operation for his new business had to be limited to 3pm to 5pm on Fridays, and on weekends and school holidays. Craig‘s business boomed.
When Craig finished school, he qualified as a Pharmacist, following in his father’s footsteps, and eventually bought Broadway Pharmacy in Durban North from his father in 1985. After extensive research into the market, Craig took his next step in the photographic industry and installed a mini-lab at the pharmacy. The business was well supported and it became time to establish a separate, fully fledged Photographic Retailer. So in 1994, Photo Freedom was born. There are currently 3 branches in KwaZulu Natal – Durban North, Kloof and Shelly Beach.
Craig keeps the business up to date by attending Photographic conferences and trade shows all over the world, ensuring that Photo Freedom has the newest products, and can offer the latest trends to our customers.
