Since 1980, Mountain West Studios has built a solid reputation as a quality provider of school portraits in Western Canada. Our managers, experienced lab staff, and knowledgeable customer service representatives play an important role in our success. The benefits of being family owned and operated are evident in our quick response times - important decisions are made in a timely manner.
