‘Axiom Photographic Agency Limited ceased trading on September 20, 2012, and was subsequently placed into Voluntary Liquidation at a meeting of the shareholders on October 23, 2012 due to its inability to meet its obligations to creditors.
The Liquidator subsequently accepted an offer presented by Design Pics Inc., to purchase the assets of Axiom Photographic, which became effective October 25, 2012. The business of Axiom Photographic will continue under the management of Tim Hook in Axiom’s London office as a division of Design Pics Inc.
