Who we are

MPB is the world’s largest resale platform for digital photography and filmmaking kit.

What we do

Launched in 2011 by Matt Barker, MPB was born from a desire to provide more freedom and flexibility to photographers. Barker, an avid photographer, set out to improve the speed, reliability and experience of trading kit online. By combining the power of an end-to-end technology platform, rigorous testing and validation by product experts, and top-notch customer service, MPB has become the most convenient and trustworthy way to buy, sell, and trade digital photography, videography, and filmmaking kit online.

Unlike most other camera resellers, we focus exclusively on used kit. With over 160,000 cameras, lenses and accessories traded each year, MPB offers buyers and traders unrivalled choice of digital photo and video kit. The MPB platform provides more than £250M in quotes to sellers per year and ensures that sellers are paid the same day. We carefully monitor supply and demand to ensure that sellers receive the highest price possible, and that all items are priced correctly for the market. With MPB, users get more money for their kit, and more kit for their money. By inspiring photographers and filmmakers to choose used, we're making creative industries more sustainable and driving the circular economy.

Backed by leading investment firms Acton, Mobeus Equity Partners, Beringea, and FJ Labs, MPB has continued to increase its global reach. Headquartered in Brighton in the UK, we launched US operations in Brooklyn, NY in 2017 and will establish operations in Berlin, Germany by the end of 2020. MPB employs a talented global team of 150.

MPB has been named to the Sunday Times Tech Track 100, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, and the Tech Nation Future Fifty.

Who we do it for

Over 250,000 photographers, filmmakers and creatives in Europe and the United States trust MPB for their kit needs.
