Tempe Camera, now celebrating over 35 years of business, would like to thank you, our friends and patrons, for your continued support throughout these many years of growth.
Our business philosophy is a simple one: Provide our customers with good service at reasonable prices. While Tempe Camera has grown to be the largest photographic shop in Arizona, we remain a community-oriented enterprise and are proud that many of our customers become our friends. Our specialty is personal service. We are committed to serving the photographic community by providing aspiring and professional shooters with a reliable resource for their imaging needs.
As founder and owner of Tempe Camera, Joe Wojcich has received many awards. His most notable recognitions include the 1994 Small Business Person of the year award for the state of Arizona by the U.S. Small Business Administration and several Best of Phoenix Photography Store awards by New Times. He considers these honors a result of a hard working staff and satisfied customers.
