A high performance system for the professional photographer

Our professional photography system has been designed to offer the ultimate in performance, tuned for use in Photoshop and Lightroom but also able to handle video editing and many other productivity and content creation tasks. Each component has been chosen to offer the best performance; we use our many years’ experience to choose the very best performing specification.


The new Intel Core i9-9900K CPU is the fastest available processor on the market today.  It powers through just about any task you can throw at it and really excels in content creation.  With a high 5.0GHz clock speed, it offers the best performance in Photoshop and Lightroom whilst its 8 cores and 16 threads help it power through demanding multi-tasking workloads such as video editing too.


The Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Ultra is one of the very best motherboards available and includes just about every possible feature you could ask for.  Of note to photographers is the inclusion of a third M.2 NVMe slot so the storage array can be upgraded at a later date if required.  Also, the board comes with superb built in audio including a high quality DAC.


The inclusion of dual Thunderbolt 3 ports enables the connection of high speed external storage devices.  If you record and store large volumes of data on an external shoot, Thunderbolt 3 storage devices are ideal storage medium.  The high performance of Thunderbolt 3 has made it a favourite of Apple MAC users so the inclusion of the Thunderbolt connectivity also allows easy transfer of content between camera, MAC and PC.


The included AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 professional graphics card helps enable superb GPU acceleration in a growing number of effects. The large 8GB video memory is able to cope with the largest images and offer superb performance.  It also has support for 10-bit colour for high levels of detail and colour precision. Couple this with a 10-bit capable photography monitor for superb colour accuracy and image quality.


The system retains the incredible performance of the new Samsung 500GB 970 EVO boot drive.  The secondary SSD drive is where you will keep most of your work in progress images so its important to have a high performing drive.  This system uses the best drive available on the market today, the Samsung 970 PRO.  The PRO version of this drive builds on the already strong performance of the EVO model but utilises super fast SLC NAND memory across the whole drive.  This means there is no performance degradation when writing large quantities of data.  Whereas the EVO model will begin to slow and lose performance when writing more than 13GB of data in one session, the PRO version can carry on and write the full 1TB in one session at its maximum performance. The storage drive is the 10TB Seagate Ironwolf Pro offering incredible performance – (24/7 rated, 5 years warranty, 300TB/year workload rating) – Register for 2yrs FREE Data Recovery on


The immensely impressive chassis with huge scope for future expansion of the system is also notable.  Its built using high quality materials and offers excellent cooling for high performance equipment.  Fans are low noise yet extremely efficient.  An excellent choice for the professional photography studio. The Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 chassis provides a professional grade workstation chassis that is clean and uncluttered. Its a true pro chassis made from the best materials and is designed to house the highest performance components and keep them cool. The inside of the chassis side panels are lined with noise isolating materials to reduce noise and vibration. We also equip this chassis with 3 x 140mm SilentWings 3 cooling fans which ensure your PC components are adequately cooled while their low noise design ensures the system remains quiet.
