The ballot is done and U.K. are leaving the EU. Yea Brexit is full on.
I am not really sure what will happen to our friends in the E.U and our friends in the U.K. but I think that photography gear from U.K. companies will have to be affected. I am not sure it the price will go up or down, or if stock will be easier or harder to come by, but changes are coming for sure. Here is a list of 7 U.K. based gear companies. Use at your own discretion.
Lee are kinda the gold standard when it comes for photographic filters, they’ve been making them for about 30 years. Not only they are based in the UK, but they do make of the production in their factory in the UK.
Bowens makes studio gear, mostly lights. And while they have been having a bit of a hard time lately, they are still considered on of the top strobe brands in the world. I am not sure if production is actually being made in the U.K. but HQ and the dev department are there.
Triggertrap makes camera triggers that use your smartphone’s features and turns it into a camera triggering tool. This means you can use all the sensors in your phone to trigger a photo.
Inspired Photo Gear
Inspired photo gear are small, but they make some of the cleverest/smallest light stand systems I’ve seen.

3 Legged Thing is a British Tripod Company, specializing in compact, stable, modular, multi-functional tripod systems
Ilford have been making black and white film and paper over the 130 years.
