Toy Store for Photographers

Maybe toy store isn’t the proper adjective to use when describing my favorite photography store – Midwest Photo Exchange – but whenever I go there it is like a toy store to me.  They have gear galore there.  Camera bags from simple to serious hard cases.  An entire section dedicated to lighting.  The rental department for just about anything photographic you could ever want or need and of course the cameras and lens – new and used.  Oh and a great and fun knowledgeable staff.

They are getting ready to move in a couple of weeks to their new digs where there will be more space (does more space mean more goodies???) and better parking (thank goodness because the current parking bites). Plus their learning studio, where they have all sorts of photography related classes, will be in the same quarters as well.  One stop shopping and learning; works for me!  Now I just need to figure out how to get to the new place.

This is not a sponsored post, just sharing some photos I took at the store after they cleaned my camera’s mirror which is something I do not have the nerve to do myself.  I now know never to wear a certain shirt when changing lens 🙂  Have a great weekend everyone!

    The toy store analogy is quite apt – whenever I go into a camera store I just want to buy the whole lot and take it home! 🙂

    Very cool. I think Camera & Darkroom is the only photo equipment and supply store we have left in Albuquerque.

  4. Me want!!!!! What kind of shirt or material should we avoid ?

    Gotta love it – I am in need of a new camera and I hope to find a “toy store” like this one!

  6. I wish we had a store like that nearby here. I’d be spending a lot of time . . . and money there.
