Condor Foto's birth
Condor Foto was born in Milan in Via Sassetti on 2 August 1965 by Mario Capozzi with the production and sale of chemical sprays for photographic use that have entered the history of world photography, some of which are still in production today.
In the foreign market
In July 1968, on Mario's death, his son Alberto took over and launched the company on the foreign market, starting to participate in the Cologne Photokina fair with his own stand.
Thus began exports to all continents. In 1970 Alberto founded Assofoto, the association of Italian photographic industries in order to facilitate the export of his products abroad. Over the years he will participate in fairs in USA, CHINA, RUSSIA, GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE, SPAIN, ARAB EMIRATES, CANADA, CZECH REPUBLIC. This led to an exponential increase in the demand for chemicals and special effects and therefore an increase in production.
Also in the 70s, some products for the darkroom were added to the chemists, including the famous "CONDOR TIMER E" which is also exhibited at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, then in the 80s the first radio controls for cameras and flashes in the world and the first solar cell photocells.
For photographic studios
In the 1980s, the sale of stands, lights, flashes and professional equipment for photographic studios also began.
A new headquarters
In 1990 Condor Foto moved from the historic headquarters in Via Sassetti to the current one in Via Prinetti 32 in a building of over 600m2 which allows it to start producing and selling cotton and non-woven backdrops; at the same time it became the official importer and distributor for Italy of BD paper backdrops made in USA recognized by moti as the best in the world.
The commercial push
In 2019 Lorenzo, Alberto's son, joins the company who brings a further commercial boost to the company with over 20 years of managerial career as commercial director.
56 years in business
In 2021 Condor Foto celebrates 56 years of activity thanks not only to the work done by all employees but above all by the trust that every single customer has always placed in this historic Italian company.

Servizio Eccellente - Mi hanno salvato la Vita in un Servizio Fotografico
Conosco il team di Condor foto ormai da più di un anno e si è instaurato un rapporto
professionale e di amicizia. Qualche settimana fa ho scattato per un noto brand di moda
e c'è stato un problema con il fondale di carta dello studio. Ho chiamato subito Condor
foto e nel giro di 20/30 minuti è arrivato Lorenzo a portarmi un nuovo fondale e a
salvare la situazione e così sono riuscito a terminare il lavoro davanti agli occhi
meravigliati dei clienti. E non solo.
