    I worked at Calumet Photographic full-time for more than 3 years


    It's great to be able to work at a company that simply focuses on how to help the professional photographer the best way they know how.


    It's difficult to be able to get enough inventory to be able to keep up with the ever changing digital marketplace. The online retailers don't have the stock the fast amount of inventory necessary to keep brick and mortar supported.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on satisfying the needs of the true professional photographer and don't get distracted by the shade tree photographers.
