We first opened our Wheat Ridge location in November 2012 on Wadsworth Blvd. After many good years there, we saw an opportunity in the Youngfield shopping center and moved to a new location in the Fall of 2022.

Mike’s Camera re-energizes the way you think, feel, and practice and enjoy the fun of photography. Established in 1967 in downtown Boulder, Colorado. An Army photographer turned businessman, Mike wanted to create an oasis for aspiring photographers to share his passion for pictures and at that time, the precision photographic instruments of the time, primarily Japanese and German photographic equipment. The single small store in downtown Boulder developed a reputation throughout the front range for being a unique place where one could find just about every camera, slide projector and enlarger along with the widest array of films, chemicals for developing and printing photographs for the professionals and aspiring photographer alike.

In 1980 the current owners, the Christianian family, purchased the store. The Christianians added more product lines, professional gear, a video department and complete photo lab, processing and printing services to the existing Black and White lab. They installed one of Colorado’s first One-Hour minilabs, custom color printing, E-6 dip-and-dunk processing and one of the country’s first home movies to Video transfer facility. With all these services and growth they soon outgrew the original store. The Christianians expanded the original Boulder store and relocated its headquarters to the current Boulder Superstore, in a building that creating a setting filled with energy and pouring over in creativity; service radiating fun and knowledge throughout. 

In 1998 Mike’s Camera expanded to 3 Colorado Locations and then in 2012 expanded further to 5 Colorado locations and into Northern California.
