Who is Mel Pierce?

Mel Pierce Camera is located in the heart of Hollywood California.

Founded in 1946 first as a repair facility for the working photographers of Los Angeles, we soon began to sell the major brands of cameras and photographic goods. In our community we are still known as one of the best places to bring your camera in for service. We have built a reputation for great prices on the latest technology our industry has to offer and we provide excellent customer service as well. Our sales staff are all seasoned photographers who know the craft and technology of photography.

We jumped into the Internet early on and we have built a catalog of literally thousands of items that we sell at discount prices. Some products and packages are ours exclusively and we do import some very hard to find items from around the world.


We have embraced the digital photography age but are also working to keep some legacy products such and film, darkroom and Instant Photography in stock for the enthusiast.

Who is Mel Pierce?

Mr. Pierce passed away in 1977 but we have proudly kept his name alive with our wonderful business. Mel Pierce Sr. founded Mel Pierce Camera in 1946 in a Hollywood apartment – repairing cameras and providing other services to the local movie production companies and newspapers.
His business grew and Mel assembled a repair shop in a local garage. Word spread throughout Los Angeles that Mel Pierce Camera was the place to go for repairs and custom work. So much so, that the little garage operation moved to a “regular” store front near the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Mel Pierce Camera began selling camera equipment at this time.

In 1969, Mel Pierce Camera moved into their own building at 5645 Hollywood Blvd. The larger store gave us the room to expand our product offerings and services. As digital photography come to our
industry, Mel Pierce Camera had to adopt this new technology as our cliental of movie studios, television stations and of course our wonderful customers insist on having the latest and greatest.
