Huemaxx is now Film Foto Forever

filmfotoforever.com


Huemax, the High Point, NC analog/mechanical camera seller and service center, has re-branded itself as "Film Foto Forever."

They are still the same mecca for central North Carolina film photographers, and continue to be owned and operated by Ken Toda. But are now taking steps towards classes, workshops, darkroom, and studio services.

I have gotten a lot of good advice and done a lot of business with these guys over the years and am very happy to see them continuing to do what they do.

Huemaxx Film Foto Forever is located at:

2313 Geddie Pl
High Point, NC 27260

They are open Monday through Friday by appointment only.

Contact them by phone at (336) 885-2000, or email at filmfotoforever@yahoo.com

Visit their website at filmfotoforever.com

Keep up with their blog at filmfotoforever.com/blog

And, if you talk to Ken Toda, tell him mattbellphoto says "Hi!"
