One Decade of photo fun.

July 19th  was the birth of something special and I am not talking about the birth of Brian May from Queen, Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch or ER’s Anthony Edwards.  Back on that day in 2004 Peace Camera was born.  We have been your source of photographic goods ever since.  We are so thrilled to to have made it this far and we look forward to serving you for another 10 years.

In celebration, there will be deals on lots of items. We’re not announcing which ones, you’ll just have to stop by to find out.  If you come by between 11am and 3pm you can have a scoop or two of free ice cream!

Print Contest submissions due this Sat. June 7th!

Last year we sacrificed a bit of floor space in the store and built a gallery to display some of our customers’ awesome photography work. We’ve really been enjoying everyone’s submissions, and we’ve even hosted a month-long show for the Raleigh Outdoor Photography Club.
