New Year, New Look, Same Soul
New H&H Logo

For 44 years, H&H has been trusted for our beautiful products, outstanding customer service and contribution to the photographic industry. When we decided it was time to update our look, we wanted a more contemporary logo that expressed what H&H stands for – customer focused; passion for quality; innovative and forward-thinking; leaders in the industry; trustworthy.

At H&H, we have been hard at work putting all the pieces in place to rollout our new look for you and we kicked things off with our new logo last week.

Start watching in the weeks to come as we spread our new look throughout our software, print ads, marketing and website. We are making things simpler and cleaner both in look and in the way we do things.

We hope you like what you see and that we can make your lives a little easier…enjoy!

H&H Connection

One of the many changes you will see this year is our monthly newsletter, Focus. It is now renamed “The H&H Connection.” We feel the name is fitting – as it is a source of connection for all of us. The H&H Connection will continue to provide you with important information designed to keep you connected with what is going on at H&H, and to help you grow your business.

Information on conventions, education, speaker events, software updates, products, schools and sports, and much more will be emailed to you the first week of each month. Whenever we have special information to share during the month, we will send a Connection Bulletin. Stay connected – watch for these emails throughout the month!

NEW hhschools Software Release!
h+h schools logo

12 years ago, H&H released ARCS eZevent. Over the following years, this package ordering software for school and sports continued to be developed into the deep and sophisticated image database and workflow workhorse that has served thousands of studios and schools, and millions of children.

Four years ago, we saw that before long, we would need a new platform – one designed from the ground up, using the latest software technologies and architecture to support the next generation of volume school and sports photography needs.

hhschools is the latest volume photography software platform. This FREE Mac and PC compatible software is for school, sports and volume events photography, and leverages the familiar and proven interfaces of eZsports and eZevent.

For more information, click HERE.

eZevent will be removed from our web site in the coming weeks. We intend to continue to support orders coming from eZevent for the coming months, but no further development will be done to eZevent and we will phase this software out by the end of 2014.

Download hhschools today!


If you are attending Imaging USA, we would like to invite you to join us for a special presentation walk-through of hhschools.

This informal event is designed to allow you to interact with our school and sports team, while previewing our powerful new workflow software…hhschools.

When: Monday, January 13

Where: Imaging USA – Phoenix, AZ
North Building, room 126b

What: Exclusive presentation of hhschools

If you plan to attend, please RSVP
