The Okko Story


Born in New Zealand for big, beautiful adventures

In 2015 Simon Apperley @simonapperley7 returned home to New Zealand and was inspired by the pure southern light and epic landscapes.

Simon had a great camera and a growing collection of lenses. But he struggled to find quality filters. In every store he was faced with a confusing wall of badly packaged, jargon heavy, average glass & expensive filters.

He thought, there has to be a better way!

'So Simon took the challenge and set out to design filters with the highest quality materials, he tested, then tested again and worked on a range that would cover all aspects of photography.

Then he added the Lifetime Professional Warranty.

After launching the brand Okko quickly grew with over 38 stores in New Zealand stocking our products. Okko has now expanded to Australia and the USA. 

Okko. Simple. Strong. A lens filter for life.
