Default Lighting Coloured Gels

Hello, recently I got a lighting kit for portraiture work and trying to find a place that sells coloured gels that I can just get and peg it to the front of the flash unit for background lighting.

Does anyone have any recommendation where I can get them in Toronto, Ontario, Canada? Vistek and Henry doesn't carry those loose gel sheets. I saw some on eBay... but just wondering if there are any lighting supply store locally.

Thank you.

I'm not familiar with retailers in Canada. But you might try the Rosco web site to see if they have dealer listings: Rosco US

I buy all my gels from Vistek. They have a cabinet at the front of the store on the first floor... in the film department.

You could also try headshots on Dundas.

Thanks for the feedback JohnC and grsphoto. I'll check vistek the next time I'm there.
