“Processus [prɔsesys]: French word for process, evolution; a group of actions with a common goal; a series of events or a succession of methods. Processus also relates to Process Art, an artistic movement where the end product is not the principal focus. This multi-use space is inspired by our art philosophies and by our way of life. Driven by process and ideas, our works reflect timeless actions and methods as we often go back to the basics. For years, we have dreamed about a place to work, a place to meet new people and share important ideas. We envision a place where the artist community will share processes and ideas, a place to experiment and discover new things, a place that focuses on experience and chance encounters.
This came from the need of a simple space where individual artists, designers and community members can make objects and learn new things regardless of their abilities or background. The focus of the workspace will be on handmade objects and works on paper. It will include a shop, a clean room and a darkroom. It will also provide tools, assistance and advice for artists to make what they need to professionally display their works. It will be a place for people to discuss ideas, and experiment with materials. Creative individuals and community members will learn from each other, blurring the boundaries between art and life.
As part of the project, a small café will offer a space for people to think and share ideas. The café will focus on locally grown simple foods and vegan treats. Regular offerings of art displays, talks, pop up events, etc… will start after the workspaces are open. The café will be open to the public while the workspace will be open to members only.”

Summer time: a time for vacations and travel, BBQs, fireworks, and fun with family and friends! This summer, Englewood Camera needs a fresh look, so we are offering a photography contest to decorate the walls in our store. Enter up to three images in our contest for your chance to show your work at the store! We are looking for 15 total images to put on display between August and October 2014.
Our theme for this photography contest is travel. Travel photography can inspire us to visit new places, experience new cultures, meet new people, and try things we’ve never done before. Share your travel experiences with us and our customers by entering!
Colorado’s Red Cross is currently looking to add a few more talented and responsible volunteers to its Public Affairs team, who would help visually tell its story in a meaningful way. This would sometimes include covering local, Colorado disasters, but also would include other Public Affairs events such as fundraising events, PR campaign events, Hero Awards, Swimming Safety classes, Military homecomings and any other place where the Red Cross is involved. Red Cross is not necessarily asking for a large time commitment, just to be committed. Volunteers can work as many and as few hours as they wish, but would like them to be actively engaged on a regular basis. If you are looking for a great opportunity to volunteer in you community, and are a skilled photographer or videographer, please reach out to the Red Cross Colorado Chapter today.
On Friday, we had a lovely event at the store where we announced our winner for our photo book contest. Congratulations to Gary Witt, first place winner and proud new owner of a Fujifilm X100s; and to JC Buck, second place winner and proud new owner of a Fujifilm Mini 90 Neo Classic camera! Thanks again to our participants, and everyone who came out for the event.

If you’ve never visited Englewood Camera, you’re missing out on our great selection of photographic history. We pride ourselves in carrying not just digital products and camera accessories, but antique, vintage, and analog equipment as well. A lot of our display items are not for sale, so our customers can reminisce over the days of photo past. On this throwback Thursday, we’ve looked for some fun, vintage photography ads to share with you. We hope you like our findings!
A 1970’s ad for the Kodak Ektralite 10, an instamatic camera that used 110 film.
Leica’s response to automatic cameras!
Just a little risque…Hal Reiff shot this image for Miranda in the early 1960’s.
“Let’s Remember the Good Times” ad from the mid ’70’s featuring a Pentax KM and Honeywell flash. That hair!
“If you’re serious about photography, wear a Minolta SRT-101.”
