Photo 101 Class Announced for 1/11/17


We have scheduled our next Photo 101 Class for January 11th, 2017 from 7pm to 9:30pm at our store. Just in time to learn how to use that new camera you got for Christmas! Keep in mind we’ve moved to our new location at Quail Corners Shopping Center, 5039 Falls of Neuse Rd. Raleigh, NC.

This class covers the basics of photography- how to get off of the “AUTO” modes and take control of your camera. What is aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and when would you change one or the other? This is a good class for those with no experience or folks with some experience but they would like a refresher on the basics.

Space is limited for this class, so please prepay to reserve your spot. There’s even a discount for advance payment. Class fee is $65 at the door, or there’s a 10% discount for prepayment.

Farewell Old Friend

We’ve had lots of great feedback on the new store- we’re loving the new location and the Quail Corners Shopping Center. We’re almost finished cleaning out the old Peace St. store and feeling a bit nostalgic as we find stuff we haven’t seen in years. While we’re looking forward to a bright future in our new spot, we’ll always have a soft spot for our little building in downtown Raleigh. Lots of memories…

New Location Grand Opening This Weekend!


We are set up and ready for our Grand Opening this weekend at our new location in Quail Corners Shopping Center- come see us on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday or both! Lots of stuff is still on sale after the move, and Nikon and Canon are running some Black Friday Instant Rebates. We’re located at 5039 Falls of Neuse Rd. in Raleigh, and we will have new extended hours for the store- Mon-Fri. 10am-7pm and Sat. 10am-5pm.

Crazy 9foot seamless BOGO sale!


We have too many 9 foot seamless paper backgrounds and Kristen is pulling her hair out!

We’ve put select colors of 9ft seamless paper on super duper crazy sale- Buy one get one free!! Yep, that’s just $60 for a 9 foot seamless and you get another one FREE.

We literally mean SELECT COLORS- not white, black, gray, or greenscreen.

So if it’s time to stock the studio with color backgrounds for Easter, or if you’ve always wanted to pick up a bright orange for cheap- now’s the time! The ones that are on sale are up against the back wall in the store, come on down and see what we’ve got.

Peace Camera Yard Sale This Weekend!

This Saturday, September 24th we’re having a yard sale. We’re like Crazy Eddie- slashing prices left and right! You may have heard that they’re going to build a condo on our corner… Well, that means we’re going to be forced to move. The new location is still super duper top secret, but we can tell you this- we don’t want to have to move all this inventory!! That’s good news for you- there will be huge deals on most of our stock. There will also be free ice cream, so come on down!

Saturday, September 24th from 10am-4pm.

One Nikon D500 IN STOCK!

This morning I received a phone call from a customer looking for a Nikon D500 body. We didn’t have one in stock, and like an idiot I didn’t get his phone number in case one came in… Murphy’s Law- the UPS guy dropped off his boxes not a half hour later and you’ll never guess what came in from Nikon- one shiny new D500!!

So if you’re the customer who called and you’re reading this- yes, we now have one in stock. Even if you’re someone else who’s looking for a D500, we’ve already delivered to everyone on our wait list, so this one’s up for grabs!!
