Grays of Westminster Article in BPI Magazine
Below is an excerpt of the first few paragraphs of the article in BPI (British Photography Industry) Magazine:
Legendary Nikon dealer Grays of Westminster has been presented with a heavy crystal trophy by the managing director of Nikon UK, Michio Miwa.
The trophy, which features a 3D image of the iconic Nikon F camera laser-etched into it, reads: “Presented to Grays of Westminster to celebrate their 25th Anniversary and their outstanding contribution to Nikon users.”
In a letter to the dealer’s founder, Gray Levett, Makoto Kimura, the President of the Nikon Corporation, Japan, wrote: “Grays of Westminster is a well-known and respected business that has become almost a household name amongst professional photographers during the past 25 years. This is no doubt a result of your commitment to your customers and understanding of the Nikon brand.
“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on such a momentous occasion and would like to express our gratitude for your support of the Nikon brand. I am looking forward to a continued mutually beneficial relationship during the coming years.”
Grays of Westminster was founded a quarter of a century ago by Gray Levett who had the idea of creating a world-class camera store which would offer a service second to none. The concept began to take shape and ultimately came to life as Grays of Westminster.
Among those joining Gray Levett and co-director Uri Zakay at a celebratory luncheon at The Goring Hotel, in Belgravia, were Richard Young, one of the UK’s most successful celebrity photographers; Mike Maloney OBE, Britain’s most decorated press photographer; Andrew Main Wilson, chief operating officer of the Institute of Directors; Gillian Greenwood, Nikon Owner magazine director and author of Grays of Westminster, Exclusively Nikon: In the Company of Legends, as well as senior staff from Nikon UK.
