Wex Photo Video turns 25!

We can’t quite believe where all the time has gone, but Wex has reached the grand old age of 25. A lot has changed for us since our humble beginnings in Norwich, including a couple of rebrands, several iterations of our website, multiple new store launches and a good few awards, but the one thing that has remained constant is our dedication to serving passionate photographers (and, more recently, filmmakers, stargazers, audiophiles, birdwatchers, studio managers, drone operators…) across the UK. As we enter our second quarter of a century, we are hosting a range of activity to celebrate all the things that have made us who we are.

  • Howard Utting launches Warehouse Express following success with the Uttings brand, specialising in Optics, Telescopes and Cameras

Wex Ambassador Network

Wex Ambassador Network

Alongside the people and brands who have shaped Wex over the last 25 years, a major factor in our longevity has been the talented professionals with whom we've collaborated. To celebrate the fantastic community we've built, we’re launching our first ambassador programme. Throughout the year, the Wex Ambassador Network will be promoting and supporting six incredible creatives through their endeavours. Check our website and social channels for a range of content offering practical advice, unique insight and inspiration from a diverse group of photographers and filmmakers.
