Repair Centre celebrates over 40 years of supplying
quality service and knowledgeable workmanship to the photographer,
from hobbyist to professional.
Repair Centre does not repair digital cameras.
Tony Tavener started his career as a technician at Carl Zeiss Scientific Instruments in New Cavendish Street London W1. After two and a half years he commenced work for Wallice Heaton, photographic supplier to the Queen, 127 New Bond Street London W1.
Arriving in beautiful Cape Town in 1970, Tony worked as a technician at Photographic Repair Services, 82 Maynard House, Shortmarket Street. Four years of faithful service saw him taking over the reigns as owner. The now Camera Repair Centre has been his pride and joy, and under his capable management to the present day.
Sadly, Tony's daughter Wendy who was a camera technician with us for many years lost her struggle against cancer and passed away in October 2003 at the tender age of 29. She is surely missed.
