Beau Photo Supplies Inc.

Once upon a time, a group of photo-inclined gentlemen got together over a few beer and thus Beau Photo Supplies was born. Well, not quite so easy....more like...

A photographic wholesale company in Vancouver named York Photo was going into receivership, at which point our four heroes named (this part is important) B-ennett, E-ddie, A-ngie, and U-lbe decided to take over the situation and thus, in 1982, B-E-A-U (check the name thing again) Photo was born. Angie was left to hold down the fort with 2 part-timers in its original location on the 1700 block of West 3rd Avenue. In a few months, the 4 partners took on a 5th and the full-time staff doubled with the addition of Gord Lovell. Needless to say, the humour more than tripled! Although the company specialized mainly in soft goods such as albums, folders, frames and Polaroid, the equipment end was always expanding. At one point, you could also buy honey for your toast and oil for your car!?! In 1985, Beau Photo moved to its current location at 1520 W.6th Avenue. With Gord's departure in 2000, Angie has become the sole owner of the company. Over the years the staff of 2 has grown to 12 and the selection of products continues to increase rapidly. Beau Photo still carries all the albums, folders, cameras and lighting that you've come to depend on and our extensive digital and rental departments continue to keep up with the latest in the industry to keep you shooting! Our quirky, yet knowledgeable staff is here to help you. Give us a call!
