Red Dot Cameras is run by Ivor and Elaine Cooper, with the help of three knowledgeable Leica users Brian Parkes, Francis Qureshi and Ash Smith.
Ivor has been selling cameras in London for more than 20 years, having worked previously for some of London’s top classic camera companies. He says, "Leica cameras have been my life, I’m an avid user of the cameras and have probably sold more new models during the past 15 years than anyone else in the UK. So it was my mission to open my own store dedicated exclusively to Leica, offering an unrivalled expertise in all things bearing the famous red dot."
