In 1983, together my dad and I invested in an existing camera store, called Craig’s Cameras, that was located in Arlington’s Town North Shopping Center. Harry provided the financial support and my contribution was four years of shadowing the owner, Mr. Craig Brackeen, while learning all the workings of the business. The name was officially changed to “Arlington Camera” on April 1, 1987. My mother, Virginia Porter, was a very important part of this family venture. As a retired Neiman–Marcus retail employee, she effortlessly ran the film counter and was referred to as “the glue that held us all together”. Soon after the purchase, my brother, Jim Porter, also joined our family business.
