MICA School Store - MICA's school store located at 1501 W Mt Royal Ave, Baltimore, MD 21217. The MICA Store offers a very limited amount of photographic supplies, so it's best to contact them if you have a question about an item you wish to purchase. Phone: 410-225-2276
Service Photo – Maryland’s source for cameras, photographic equipment and professional imaging supplies. Service Photo is a good place to get started, they have most of the supplies that will be found on your Syllabus. They have a long standing relationship with MICA Photo and are happy to help with your questions. Service Photo is also a good resource to shop for used photographic equipment.
Artist and Craftsman Supply – Located just across the Howard Street Bridge, Artist and Craftsman Supply is a utility art store which has a lot to offer, but like most general purpose art stores they do not stock photography supplies. They do have a good stock of book construction supplies.
Plaza Art Supply – Another art supply store conveniently located in the Mount Vernon area on Cathedral Street. Like Blick, it doesn’t really have a lot to offer in way of Photo Specific needs but there is more to the MICA curriculum than just what is taught in the Photo Department.
Blick Art Materials – A wonderful art supply store located close to campus. They don’t carry a whole lot in terms of Photo Supplies, but hey you have to take a drawing class or two, and probably could use some acid free tape right? So if the MICA Store doesn’t have it, or you are looking for a little variety in your shopping experience give them a try.
B & H Photo – Large Selection, typically good prices, and fast delivery, a good addition to any photographer's list of resources. Located in New York City.
