The Treasure of Milky Lake Now at Revelstoke Library

Revelstoke Library now has a copy of The Treasure of Milky Lake in its collection.  So, if you are near there, you can check it out on their shelves.

New Instagram Business Profile

I have now created a business profile on Instagram.  This is to allow any potential customers to contact me directly within Instagram, instead of taking the long way by clicking on tapping on the link to my photography website, and then navigating to the “Contact Me” page.   The only pictures that will be posted here will be those related to my portfolio, and pictures I take for clients.  Here is the link to the page so that you can follow me:

As you can see, this is a different profile name.  That means that I haven’t deleted my personal profile.  My personal profile will be used to share all the different photos that I have taken, both when I’m out and about and as part of my photography business.  The personal profile will also have updates for whenever my books are published.

Important Notice About Debit Card Payments

I regret to inform all of you that, as of today, I won’t be accepting debit card payments greater than $100 (i.e. non-Interac Flash payments) as a form of in-person payment for my photography business.  The reason is that my debit card processor is shutting down, and it will be a while before I’ll be able to start looking for a new debit card processor.

If you are paying me in person for either prints, retainer fees, or services, and the total is greater than $100, you can still pay me via one of the many forms of payment that I accept.  Total costs and/or fees that are less than $100 can also be paid via Interac Flash.

I apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause some of you.

Now on Vero

With all the hype surrounding Vero over the past week, I’ve now decided to give it a try.  You can find me just by typing in my name, and we can connect on there.

So far, I really like this tool, and it does have potential to be a really nice alternative to Instagram, especially if you hate that algorithm and the constant ads on it.  Plus, it’s actually not too hard to use.  It’s still free to sign up, so get your account as soon as you can!

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.

Entry into Viewbug Gorgeous Rivers Photo Conest

It’s been a while since I’ve entered a photo contest on Viewbug, but I have just submitted an entry for one: the Gorgeous Rivers photo contest.  Voting will not open until March 31, so there’s a lot of time before the announcement that you can vote for my photo will be made.  In the meantime, you can go to the following website to see the photos entered into the contest, including mine:
