Welcome to Junk Store Cameras!

Because Focus is Overrated

ABOUT

I refer to them as Junk Store Cameras.

Some are toy cameras. Some are plastic cameras. Some are metal. Some aren’t even cameras. I find them at junk stores and camera shows … folks give them to me. My place is the land of misfit photographica.

2023 marked the 20th anniversary of junkstorecameras.com. 

 

The two most important days in our lives: the day we’re born and the day we figure out why. I don’t remember the day I was born but I remember the day I was first moved by a camera in a junk store. It was May of 1996 in Spuzzum, British Columbia. We were on a road trip to Alaska. I had my Nikon F3 loaded with infrared film when we made that fateful pit stop. The tin Rocket camera I found there revealed to me my destiny. 27 years and 100s of Junk Store Cameras later, you’d think I’d be a better photographer … or at least take better photographs. But, alas. Please enjoy this growing collection of camera-related chatter and, please, raise a glass to the 20th anniversary of this nonsense.

JSC: It's not the photographer, it's the camera.

I invite you to visit my blog of many things. 

Sometimes there’s something ok there..
