Our Story


If you live on Long Island there's a good chance you bought a camera, perhaps your first camera, from Berger Brothers...

We’re a camera store, not just an online digital camera retailer, or a department store with a camera department. We specialize in cameras, lenses and the things that go with them that you need in your quest for beautiful images. We hesitate to say we're old-fashioned, though in truth, there are certain things about us which are just that. We still believe in offering a good value, in standing behind the sale, and that courtesy and customer service comes first - that if you're happy here, so are we.

We can't count the number of professional photographers who fell in love with photography with a Berger Brothers camera, nor how many still shop with us, for our selection as well as our knowledge of the products.

Started in 1951, Berger Brothers originally sold sporting goods and musical equipment, but quickly switched to cameras when the first generation of Bergers discovered that photography was more fun. As the popularity of photography grew, we were there, helping people discover new methods and technology.

Once upon a time, you could go into a camera retail store, pick up a camera and talk to someone about that camera. We spent long hours leaning against the counters, making friends with people who shared our interest in photography. And the people behind the counter had the same dreams, shared that same sense of excitement, and yes, magic. Decisions were based on the advice of people we trusted, people who actually use the equipment themselves.

In 1973, the second generation of Bergers stepped to the front when Brad Berger took over the reins. Brad has expanded our inventory, but has never forgotten what the family drilled into him from an early age - customer service comes first. The Berger Brothers dream has never been to be the largest camera store in New York. Just the best.

An almost fanatical dedication to customer service

With so many choices, you need someone to trust with answers to your questions. Someone who'll remember you by name when you come back and is as excited about your images as you are.

We hire people who are nuts about photography, and young people who eat new technology for breakfast. Ask around the store what’s the best camera, or best brand of camera and not only will you get a lively discussion, but a passionate one. You'll hear in detail why Nikon mops the floor with Canon, why Canon is hands down the best, why Pentax is now and always will be the most innovative, and of how the name Leica will at times be spoken of in almost reverent tones.

Take a look at our courses and you’ll not only see classes in Photoshop CS4, but Lightroom, Nik Effects and other cutting edge programs. Still think 35mm, 120mm, or even 4x5 film is the way to go? You'll find people here who agree, and Berger Brothers is still a full service film camera store. And if you still have the camera your dad bought in the eighties, there's a good chance we can still service that too. After all we are now servicing our third generation of customers.

We’re eager to provide hands-on demonstrations, and guide you towards making the right purchase. Buying a camera can be baffling, and we're here to take the guesswork out of it.

As the grandchildren of their original customers now shop at Berger Brothers, the commitment to help you find the right product has never been stronger. And with the advent of the internet, we want to bring you the same service. We still think there isn't anything more fun than getting up in the morning and talking about cameras all day. If you're on Long Island, come by one of our stores and lean against the counter. Feel how the camera fits your hand, see the features up-close and ask your questions. If you're not, call us at toll-free at 800-542-8811, drop us an email, or chat online with one of our people, and you will experience the difference that puts us above the rest.
