Denton Camera Exchange from The Vision Beautiful on Vimeo

Armand Kohandani doesn’t just buy and sell cameras. He’s a proud member of a growing creative community in Denton, Texas that’s breathing life into the art of photography.

When Armand opened Denton Camera Exchange, his inventory was small, but his goal was clear: “I wanted to create a business that would serve the creative community in town, instead of compete against it,” he explains. “Something that could foster a little bit of growth, community, and good feelings.”

For Armand, building a creative community meant going beyond his role as a businessman—it meant giving back to other aspiring photographers, too. “When I was cutting my teeth as a photographer, there was nobody else out there to ask questions to, or to bounce ideas off of.” Armand hopes he can be that resource for his fellow creators in Denton.

Watch the video for a glimpse of Armand’s one-of-a-kind shop.
