Gender-Pay-Gap Discount:

As a whole, our industry is largely dominated by men. This can create a challenging environment for all those who are not, or do not identify as men. Add to that a substantial wage gap, and it becomes even more detrimental to diversity.

CatLABS is excited to offer a Gender-Wage-Gap discount. With this offer (extended to all non-male buyers) we will provide a 10% discount off listed prices of all used (and in stock) large format camera kits, and Jobo processor kits.

While we know that this offer will not change the gender imbalance in the photography world, we hope that it at least creates more awareness of it, and encourages other retailers to consider how they might be able to take part in this conversation.


Simply email us at info@catlabs.info and tell us that you’re interested in taking advantage of the discount and what gear you’re thinking about. We will provide you with the promo code, which can then be applied at the time of check out on our website. Feel free to include any questions, thoughts, concerns or details that you wish to share with us.

Please note, we will not ask you to prove your gender. We just ask that you do not abuse this program, as it is built on trust and bettering our community.
