Getting here -

By car from downtown:
Over the Granville bridge:
turn right on 6th Ave, the street just past the off ramp (see map). We are the white and blue building on the left at the alley.

Over the Burrard Bridge:
turn left at 4th Ave, then right at Fir St (about 3 blocks) then left on 6th. We are the white and blue building on the right just before Granville St at the alley.

From the Airport:
From Granville St. turn left on 16th Ave. then right on Fir St., across Broadway and under the ramp, right on 6th and one block almost back to Granville. There are restricted left turns off Granville St. onto most of the cross streets.

Please Note:
Unfortunately Beau Photo no longer has customer parking. There is street parking on 6th Ave in front of the building which usually has space available. Parking in the alley without a commercial permit will likely get you a ticket or even towed. The parking lots around the store do not belong to us and we would like to keep our neighbours happy so please don't park there.
