About Us

When E.J.Paxton (I) opened his business in Sydney in 1908, little did he know that his son, grandson and great grandsons would carry on the family business now in its 100th year and spanning four generations.
Originally operating as E.J.Paxton Opticians and then branching out to include selling cameras in 1957 E.J.Paxton (II) headed up Paxton Photographics.
In 1965 E.J.Paxton (III) (the current John Paxton) joined the firm and eventually changed the name to Paxtons Camera Video Digital Paxtons. The current stores are located in Chatswood, Hornsby and Parramatta.
John’s Wife Marcia and two sons Michael and Matthew also work at Paxtons making it a true family business as they continue the founder’s tradition of providing value, service and advice to Paxtons valued customers.
