Kupo Dealer – Unique Photo

Unique Photo Banner

Their Superstore stocks over 20,000 top brand name products for both the still and moving image maker, from the hobbyist to the top professional. All their professional sales staff highly trained in imaging to help better serve your needs. Their contemporary superstore boasts NJ’s best photo lab, NJ’s largest rental equipment program, NJ’s premiere camera trade-in program, free technical support, and a Kobricks gourmet coffee bar with a wifi lounge. If you bring them your media, they will process your images for pick up, or you can have them processed online at and they ship them to you. And finally, the jewel of their photography center is their Unique University photography education program.

We are proud to have such an imaging icon be a Kupo dealer. When asked why they chose Kupo Grip Equipment, this is the quote we received:

“The reason I use KupoGrip products is because they are affordable and durable. I recently purchased a few 30 inch Turtle base C-Stands in black for fear of reflections when doing some video projects. Also, the reason I picked the turtle base, as opposed to the sliding leg, it’s the unique spring lock feature of the turtle base make it easy to set up and pack. To top it off the 30″ fits in my Scion xA when broken down, whereas the 40″ does not.”

Bernard and Harriet Sweetwood were driven by the American Dream. Determined and hardworking, they opened a small photographic supply outlet in Brooklyn in 1947. Soon after, they opened over 20 retail outlets in department stores across New Jersey and then the Hoboken Camera Center in the 1950s. In time, Unique Photo became one of the largest privately owned photographic supply distributors in the world. Unique Photo is no longer a small Brooklyn storefront; we are NJ’s Only Camera & Video Superstore. Our facility here in Fairfield, NJ was conceived by Jonathan and Matthew Sweetwood, CEO and President respectively, who took over the daily operations in the 1980’s. Alexander Sweetwood, V.P. Operations and Purchasing, became the third generation to join the company and he recently graduated with an MBA from Montclair State University. While Unique Photo is a modern company, constantly on the cutting edge, we have never forgotten our roots. By running a family owned business, the Sweetwood’s have maintained the fundamental values that have kept Unique Photo at the forefront of the industry.
