Foto Source started in the late 1970's under the name of IPPD (Independent Professional Photo Dealers).

Our very first Member store was located in Oakville, Ontario. Mr. Ross Rawlings started McCutcheon's Foto Source and provided support, guidance and an extreme amount of personal time in the development of the group.

As the retail store group grew, the name was changed to Foto Source in 1994. This enabled us to develop a marketing component coupled with volume purchasing – an unbeatable combination that has provided exceptional growth.
