Time changes a lot of things, but after over 35 years K&M has proven it can stand the test of time. Opening our doors in 1976 our first store, located in the Gramercy section of Manhattan, was a mere 800 sq feet. Talk about tiny! Since those first days, business has boomed and we have expanded several times. Our current store, located in Tribeca, is quite the improvement! Our beautiful new showroom features different areas to explore and interactive displays to check out the newest gear. The updated boutique décor offers an inviting shopping experience while our knowledgeable staff answers all your questions. We are an authorized dealer for every item we sell, which means everything we sell is backed by the manufacturer's warranty. No tricks, only genuine products that you can feel confident buying for yourself or as a gift for loved ones.
While K&M originally started as a Camera and Photography store, the way our people interact with their cameras has changed and we've changed too! We now offer a complete line of Professional Audio equipment, Video Equipment, Apparel, Outdoors and Sporting goods... along with our famous selection of Camera and Photo gear. Our goal is to make sure you can get everything you need to explore your world, capture your moments, and live your life in one place.
From the beginning K&M has been a family run business and while we have been fortunate enough to expand and grow, we have never lost our connection to the community we serve and the friendships we have made. Many of our customers have been coming to us since the very begining, and we have watched them grow from photo students, to humble assistants, and finally into world renowned photographers in their own right. We are so proud of the accomplishments our friends have made, and are honored to have played a part in their success. So if you're just starting out, come in... ask questions... let us show you the ropes.
K&M is also one of the largest Rental Houses in NYC. One look at our Pro Rental Department and you'll know you're in good hands. We offer Canon, Nikon, Hasselblad, Mamiya, Profoto, Apple, and many more high end photography brands. From the smallest jobs to the biggest, our knowledgeable rental staff is willing to answer all your questions and will always treat you with the respect you deserve. From the biggest professional, to the person picking up a camera for the very first time; let us help you find what you've been missing. Working on a budget? We will work with you to make sure you get the best gear, at the best price.
