Welcome to Photo Idō!

Hello, my name is Scott Wyden Kivowitz, and I am the founder of Photo Idō, the photography industry’s best-kept secret.

I am on a mission to have photographers like you support your local camera stores.

  • Independent stores
  • Mom and pop shops
  • Small businesses
  • Family owned and operated

Those are a few of the ways these brick and mortar stores are classified around the world.

In fact, on average, the participating stores have been in business for 50 years, helping photographers like you because they love it.

Your favorite independent camera store might be an hour drive away. Maybe less, maybe more. At Photo Idō we know Amazon, Best Buy, Target and more are so convenient. Because their stores are everywhere and their online experiences are hard to beat.

But the family down the street who owns that camera store, pour their heart and soul into what they do. The staff they hire are extremely knowledgeable, are ready and willing to help you however they can.

Photo Idō is the photography industry’s hidden treasure because with a Photo Idō membership you can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

From our experience, you can pay off your membership with your first visit to one of the participating camera stores.

Let’s say you are traveling somewhere new, or even somewhere you visit often. But you forgot extra batteries and memory cards. If you could visit a local independent camera store and save 10% on your purchase, would that be worth it to you?

How about this one…

Let’s say you need to rent a camera or lens. Or you want to take a photography class and a participating store has exactly what you need and you can get 10% off. Would that be worth it to you?

Sounds awesome right?

Well, that’s Photo Idō. An affordable online program that offers you the ability to save a lot of money, and supports local independent camera stores at the same time.

Shhh, don’t tell anyone. Just kidding, tell everyone!

Wherever you are making photographs, Photo Idō is there to help you get good deals from the stores you love. Join the movement.

Photo Idō. Photography deals wherever you go.
