How We Got Started

Desmond Kolean-Burley, started CameraMall as an internet business in 2011, selling as an independent merchant through Amazon. It started as a summer gig while attending the University of Michigan. He recognized that high-quality customer service was the key to setting his business apart from other online sellers. After graduating from U of M, Desmond wanted to plant his roots in Ann Arbor and opened a store front for his thriving online business.

While online vendors grew, having a keen sense for the customer experience in today's fast-paced world, allowed CameraMall to stay successful. We focus on high quality photo archiving, and not just listening but reacting to customers' needs by curating a modern selection for today's photographers.

Today, CameraMall has moved away from Amazon selling and has its own thriving online presence. We're a go-to favorite for Michigan photographers because of our transparent approach, service driven management and knowledgable staff.
