He was primarily or exclusively a portrait photographer. The 4 East Cordova St. studio in the Graveley-Spinks Block was previously occupied by H.D. McKay and J.M. White. Purposefully designed and built by Vancouver architect R. Mackay Fripp for White, one corner of the upper-floor studio by McKay and Savard's day was located above the Oyster Bay Restaurant. During Savard's tenancy he had "A. Savard, Photographer" painted on one wall. Savard was married on 24 Oct 1900 in Holy Rosary Cathedral, Vancouver. After leaving photography Savard went to work at Britannia Mines.
