G.F Smith and SIM Imaging are aligned with their drive and ambition to supply professional photographers with beautiful, hand made products produced to the highest quality right here in the UK.

The dedicated team at SIM Imaging are committed to meet the needs of each and every customer, so we’re on hand to provide guidance and information on how to continue to provide your clients with excellent quality handmade products.

We’re committed to ensuring your move to SIM Imaging is smooth and easy, so we will be accommodating requests from G.F Smith customers to ensure you can fulfil any existing orders with your clients.
