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.


Voting Now Open for Viewbug Gorgeous Rivers Photo Contest

Voting is now open for the Viewbug Gorgeous Rivers photo contest.  To vote for my entry into it, please click the link below:

Voting will close the morning of April 13, so please vote as early as possible.  I thank you for your votes, and for your support.

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:

Privacy Policy Page Now Up on Photography Website

Because I have to have privacy policy page in order to do certain types of ads on social media, I have now created a Privacy Policy page.  Here is the link to it:

If you have any suggestions on how to improve it, let me know.

The Treasure of Milky Lake Now Available in EPUB Format

There’s more good news, everyone!  The EPUB version of The Treasure of Milky Lake is also now available for purchase!  You can read it on KOBO devices, or you can read it on your Android or iOS device via the KOBO app.  Just go to the KOBO store, and you can purchase your copy.  Also, it should be available in other stores that sell KOBO-based EPUB books, such as, in the future.

If you’re wondering if it will also be available on the Google Play Store, unfortunately it won’t because for some odd reason, Google doesn’t allow new book uploads anymore, even if the author is the publisher.

The Treasure of Milky Lake Kindle Version Now Available

Good news everyone!  You can now purchase the Kindle version of The Treasure of Milky Lake!  Just go to your country’s Amazon store, do a search for the title or my name, and you will see it there.  And the best part is that you can read it on any mobile device with the Amazon Kindle app.  So if you don’t have a Kindle device, it’s not a big problem!

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.
