A photography business has reached a historic landmark after successfully developing its business over the years.

Last week Lords Photodigital, on Commercial Street, Brighouse, saw the one millionth digital print roll off its production line.

Lucky customer Noel Gardaner, who brought in the print, received a free voucher and picture frame to commemorate the historic occasion.

Mr Gardaner has printed all his images at Lords over many years.

“I was amazed when I heard I’d ordered the millionth digital print,” he said.

“I find ordering prints from my digital camera very convenient and the staff at Lords always look after me.”

Over the last ten years the digital capture of images has revolutionised photography.

Lords, which was established in 1966, has been at the forefront of photographic technology and in recent years has invested heavily in digital photo printing equipment.

It now offers a fully digital service with state-of-the-art Kodak equipment able to print in seconds, with printing photos from phones being especially popular.

Steven Lord, owner of Lords, said: “We are very proud to be at the forefront of photo technology and the millionth digital print is a truly astonishing figure.

“We always spot new trends, and with smart phones now established as the most popular image capture device we have made an app available for people to easily order prints from home and collect in the shop.

“We are the leading Kodak Express shop in the country for producing prints from this app.”

The family business was established by local photographer Bill Lord and until recently was run by Jim Lord. The company is now owned by his brother Steven Lord and managed by Emma Starkey. For more information, call 01484 713869.
