Rollie’s Camera Shop has been serving customers with all kinds of photography needs for a very long time! Rollie’s was established as Bradshaw’s Photo Shop in 1949, 60 years ago, which makes our Camera shop the oldest continuously operating camera shop in all of Arizona! This is quite amazing for a independently owned business in a town that wasn’t incorporated until 1988.
During the camera shop’s 60 year rich and illustrious history, it has only seen 4 owners. Bob Bradshaw was the founder, and then in 1961 the namesake, Rollie Houck, purchased it from Bob. In 1976, Ernie and Lorraine Cousins purchased the store from Rollie when he retired, and in 2005, the current owner, Bud Johnson who also owns The Blue Eyed Bear next door purchased Rollie’s Camera Shop from Ernie and Lorraine.
In keeping with his own motto; “Dedicated to tradition with an eye on the future”, Bud has chosen to keep the namesake while updating and improving the camera shop itself. Currently, one can find almost anything in the camera shop that is a camera or has to do with cameras from the high end models like the Nikon D90 to the Canon EOS 5D and accessories for nearly any purpose imaginable.
Currently our website is going through some changes, and we would ask that you bookmark us so that you can keep up with the changes and important workshop events that we will be hosting.
