Biggs Camera: A mainstay for film photography enthusiasts in Charlotte
In an ever-changing city like Charlotte, Biggs Camera carved out a role for itself that lasted 60 years.
CHARLOTTE, NC – Some things can be closely imitated, but never quite replicated. Cinema is making a comeback.
“We’re the oldest camera store in the Charlotte area and I think we’re the only place that actually deals with film,” Troy Tomlinson of Biggs Camera noted.
The texture, grain and color of the film attract young people to film cameras and film photography as a whole.
“When you’re shooting a roll of film, there’s not that instant gratification of knowing what you’ve got,” Tomlinson said.
