A Love of Photography Runs In Our Family.
Let Us Share It With You.
Harry D. Porter, one of Arlington Camera’s founders, was always fascinated by photography. While living in California, he studied cinematography at UCLA and later was employed by a Los Angeles camera store. Several years later, Harry became a Sales Representative for Interstate Photo Supply.
In 1972, Bill Porter, Harry’s youngest son, also began a photographic career working for Interstate Photo in the repair department, and later as a Sales Representative.
With Harry and Bill’s combined experience in the field of photographic sales and equipment, they felt the next logical step was to acquire their own camera business. In 1983, father and son invested in an existing camera store called Craig’s Cameras, located in Arlington’s Town North Shopping Center. The business name was officially changed to Arlington Camera on April 1, 1987. With that development, a dream became a reality.
