When you think of Texas the stereotypical thought is real cowboys, vast land, large lakes and Longhorn Cattle. So we were surprised to learn upon watching this 5 minute clip that Armand Kohandani opend up, Denton Camera Exchange. It’s the only camera retail outlet in Denton, Texas, a city of around 110,000 people and the 27th most populous city in Texas.
In the video below Kohandani explains how he came to make his camera store by buying some inventory with a loan from his father, and how he’s trying to preserve the unique history of film photography.
“There’s lots of folks out there that don’t even know that film is still available, and it surprises them that I still carry it.”
