the harpers

Owners and Full-Timers

Charlie was a photographer and Karen was a news reporter when they first met in Texas 20 years ago.

In March 2017, they quit the rat race and moved to the beach to raise a family, open their own business and support their passion for photography.

You'll find us in the store every day, working to help photographers of all levels find what they need to pursue their passion! Come on in, shutterbugs, we are so happy to see you!

He also describes himself as a shuffleboard godfather and superking, and counts himself, Charlie L. Harper III, among his shuffleboard influencers.

vic daniels

Manager and Lab Guy

We met Vic Daniels at an event celebrating a local muralist here in Corpus Christi. The moment we found out this U.S. Navy reservist hand develops his own color film by hand, we knew we  wanted this smart, creative, resourceful and intelligent person on our team. He has a passion for photography and he regularly shoots outside of store hours to keep his talent fresh, his connections up and his eye on the latest photography trends.

Vic is a world traveler and has a special affinity for shooting on film. He counts Henri Cartier-Bresson and Fan Ho among his photographic influences.

He also describes himself as a two-time shuffleboard champion and another time shuffleboard champion in the near future. He counts Charlie L. Harper III among his shuffleboard influencers.
