Whistler Foto Source started in 1984 as Whistler One Hour Photo. Our first store was in the Nancy Greene Olympic Lodge. A second shop was added in the upper village right across from the Fairmont Whistler in the Glaicier Lodge. We decided after 15 years to close that location for a variety of reasons.
In 2004 exactly 20 years to the day we relocated our original store to a much more prominent location in the Crystal Lodge. Adjacent to Source for Sports and Citta’s. We were front and center during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. Our store faced the main-stage where numerous iconic acts performed including Blue Rodeo, Animal Nation, Feist, Usher, the Roots featuring Jimmy Fallon Devo and so many more great Canadian and international artists.
We joined the buying group Foto Source a few years later. With this collaboration we were able to bring major camera lines such as Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Fuji to name a few. We also adapted our name to Whistler Foto Source at that time to benefit from the national identity that the Foto Source brand brings. We have had a core group of long term employees over the years which is unusual in a resort town. This speaks volumes to our positive environment for both customers and staff.
Over the years we have evolved from strictly a One Hour Photo operation to a full service fulfillment center. We offer enlargements whose size is only limited by your wall size and imagination. We have an affiliation with one of the countries largest photo gifting services that can provide once again pretty much whatever you can imagine.

We also offer a full range of camera bags,memory cards and readers, Lens filters, batteries, cables pocket wizards and a selection of studio lights. We cater to the budget conscious individual and still are the choice of both the traveling and Local professional photographer seeking the highest level of quality
