The Photographer’s Toolbox is an online store for photographers of every kind. A place where you can find professional quality photo albums, portrait boxes, gift boxes, backdrops and studio equipment at affordable prices.
We offer a huge range of styles, colours, fabrics and DIY options. Super fast delivery - most of our products are ready to ship, and we pride ourselves on having fantastic customer service. We understand how busy you are, so our online store is easy to use. Find the products you need, see the price you'll pay and go straight to checkout.
We design our own products and get a lot of feedback from our customers, to make sure we are on track. If you'd like to be kept up to date with new products and info, please join our email list. There’s a form at the bottom of this page. If you are looking for something, and you haven't found it here, please contact us and tell us about it. We might already have it in the design pipeline. Or we can help you find it. We can also look into adding it to our range for you.
Who Are We:
A small family business, focused on good quality products, honest, reliable service and a genuine interest in helping photographers of all types.
Desleigh was a newspaper, wedding and family photographer for more than 18 years. Now I’m a mum of 3 ratbags, Ryan (7) Georgie (5) & Roxy dog (11).
Before the Toolbox, I had been using Peel'n'Stick albums for years - our ‘Classic’ range. When my supplier announced his retirement in 2015, I wondered what I’d do. I’d always printed and assembled my own albums, and I couldn’t find another supplier that made what I used, so I decided to buy his business! Being a 'customer' and a photographer for so long helped me understand the industry, the products and how to know what photographers were looking for.
I don’t shoot anymore. The Toolbox keeps me busy enough. But I still love designing and helping photographers find their way in the photography world. Photography businesses and enthusiasts are all welcome at The Toolbox. We have something for everyone, no matter what you shoot. We’ve been going for 4 years now, and we’ve added so many new and unique products to the range. We’re always working on something new, so please stay in touch.
Jason is Desleigh’s husband and right hand man. Jay joined us in March 2019, and it was the best decision we ever made. He’s kept busy with running the warehouse, stock control and dispatch. He also does most of the running around for the kids. Drop offs and pick ups, excursions and bush kinder keep him super busy, and he loves every minute of it.
Rory is the 'quiet' one in the team, and Desleigh’s big brother. You won't always see or hear him, but he's there in the background, helping things run smoothly. Rory does a lot of our website maintenance and marketing. When he's not at the warehouse, he's busy shooting annual reports & architecture around the world for his clients.
Rainbow is our packing queen. She takes great pride in carefully preparing your orders for dispatch, and handwriting your thank you notes. She loves dogs and rollerskating. When she’s not up to her eyeballs in packing orders, you’ll find her spinning around on roller skates, practicing for her next big comp, or down by the river, relaxing with her pooch and some friends.
