Default where to take immigration photos in Vancouver

Hello everybody,
We would appreciate if someone can give us some advice on where to go in the Vancouver/Burnaby area, in order to take the visa photos that comply with the CIC requirements. We asked in a couple of shops but they all use Polaroid so the picture won't be all identical.

Thanks in advance!,
Cecilia and Federico

Hi There

Just prior to submitting my Inland application for PR, approximately 6 months ago, I had my photos taken by a professional studio in Burnaby and they were able to give me 4 identical photos. I made sure I took the photo specifications from the Immigration Guide with me, just to be certain that the measurements were perfect before I paid for anything

The name of the Studio is: Sherwood Studios and the photographer's name is Bernard Diedrich. The phone number is 604 434 6674 and they are on Kingsway. I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Walmart? Most photographers use a 4-image polaroid, so the image is
printed 4 times on the paper. Can't get any more identical than that.

Near where I live, most grocery stores (including Wal*Mart) that
double-up as photo studios have the 2-print Poloroids.
Even Wolf Camera/Ritz Camera has only those.

It is a royal pain because CHC, Buffalo, needs 3 photos, which means
that the 3rd photo won't be exactly identical.
I ended up going to a photo studio, where the photographer used a
digital camera to take the picture and then printed 3 copies.

Only a few c. more than the Poloroid prints at Wal*Mart, Walgreens,
etc.

Plus the photographer is a professional who knows how to take
pictures, and not some minimum-wage counter clerk doubling-up as a
photographer

Best regards.
