Now on WhatsApp Business

I now have a WhatsApp business account.  So, if you happen to have WhatsApp, and are looking for a photographer, you can contact me on there at 587-887-6249.  Or, if you’re just doing a general search for photographers, I will be listed as Ashad Mukadam – Calgary Photographer to ensure that there is no confusion about what that listing is about.  This is also useful if you have any inquiries about my services, and if there is something that I can help you with.

New Phone Number for Photography

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been checking out a few free VOIP/Voice-over-WiFi phone services to see how they were, and especially if they could get me a Calgary-based number, so that I could use it as a work number for my photography business.  Well, after trying out some, I finally have chosen a service, and I can let you know what the work number for my photography business is: (587) 887-6249.

In case you’re wondering if you’ll still be able to call me on my cell phone, you certainly can (at the moment, I can only accept calls from Canada and the US), as I haven’t gotten rid of that number, nor do I intend to.

Now Accepting Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Interac Flash

I am now able to accept Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Interac Flash as in-person payments for my photography business.  So if you or someone you know is looking for a photographer who can accept these three types of payments, I can help you or those people out.  This is also the same for ordering prints directly from me.

Additionally, I checked the settings on my Pixieset store (, and it turns out I can now accept Apple Pay on there as well.  So, if you’re looking for a print via that store, you’re either on an iPhone or a 2016 or 2017 Macbook Pro with Touch Bar, and have Apple Pay already set up, then you can pay for your order via Apple Pay.
