Come and hear about michaels impressive history, from its humble beginnings as a pawn broker and gun smith to a mecca of Melbourne photography. Started in 1916, the business has passed through five generations and has traded continously in its heritage listed location on the corner of Lonsdale and Elizabeth street.

 

The michaels motto is 'for photography', and over these last 103 years we have evolved into a business covering camera sales, printing, film processing, gear hire and education as well as being home to the largest private camera collection in the world. During this talk you'll learn about some of the pivotal moments throughout this time, some of the significant people who have been a part of it, and the trials and tribulations that have changed the business into what it is today.
