Foto Art has been in tune with the rapid advance of photographic technology since its beginning as early as 1985.  Foto Art was the first in the area to stock and sell digital cameras and supplies as soon as they were available and has been leading the way ever since.  Foto Art Camera Shop along with its friendly knoledgeable staff are the best equipped to answer any question and to provide the best service available in the area.


Graduated High School in 1982 and was working full time at Foto Art one hour later. Peter spent the intervening years compiling an extensive and obsessive knowledge of photographic equipment, its history, developing processes, technological advances and just about everything in the field. This knowledge is only surpassed by his interest in the ongoing evolution of photography and has developed a 'leading edge' philosophy that keeps Foto Art the finest imaging center in Owen Sound and area.


Geoff joined Foto Art in 2002 to run the custom digital lab restoring photographs and operating the large format printer. He has written 14 books as G. Wells Taylor and maintains a huge online presence for their sale and display. G. Wells Taylor titles are available for purchase and download at all major online booksellers.
