MPB’s fast-growing user community benefits from a unique end-to-end customer experience including a quality check on all items. Customers can instantly buy and sell either for cash, or trade against other items in one single transaction. Founded and launched in Brighton by a photography enthusiast during his studies, MPB has expanded internationally with operations in the UK, US and Germany and is on its way to become the world’s leading photo gear trading platform.

“There are over 20 million photographers and filmmakers in Europe and the US alone.  They look for the perfect bit of kit, but face a highly fragmented market which lacks transparency and trust in sellers. We offer them an innovative platform to buy and sell second-hand gear in a single transaction. In the near future, further developments will see MPB blurring the lines between ownership and rental.” (Matt Barker, founder and CEO)
