Now on SubscribeStar

I have now created a SubscribeStar page.  The way that this works is just like Patreon, where you subscribe to the tier that you want, depending on what you want to see.  It is also priced in USD.  In the case of my page, it will be just like Patreon, where the $5/month tier allows you to see photos not shared on my websites or social media accounts (and will be the same photos as shown on Patreon), and also gives you exclusive access to coupons to my Pixieset site, and the $10/month tier allows you to download photos for your own personal use.

However, the downloads work differently here compared to Patreon.  Instead of 5MB, 10MB, and original size downloads, the size of downloads will be 1MB, 3MB, and 5MB, as 5MB is the maximum image size allowed on SubscribeStar.  So, unless the original image size is below 5MB, there will be no way for me to allow a download of the original image size there.  Also, while there will be a list of links, they will be zip files instead of the actual image files, since the actual images load up, rather than the attachment files.  So, in order to download the size of image you want, you will still click the file, but then you’ll have to unzip it.

If you’d like to check it out, or if you want to subscribe to this page, please go to www.subscribestar.com/ashadmukadam.

Now on Patreon

I have now created a Patreon page.  This is for my photography, and the purpose is to share photos that I have not shared anywhere else (including social media), as well as to allow access to digital downloads of my photos for your own personal use, including for backgrounds for your computer and mobile devices.  That means that they are not to be published on any other websites.  Furthermore, it will allow you to get exclusive coupons for buying prints on my Pixieset website.  There will be two tiers for membership (prices in USD): $5/month for seeing the pictures and getting the coupons, and $10/month in order to get access to the downloads.  As of now, this will be the only way that I’ll be able to allow digital downloads of my photos.  The photos will be available in three sizes: 5MB, 10MB, and the original size.

Eventually, I might allow for downloads of my photos on my own e-commerce site when I can afford to create one, and if that is the case, the $10/month tier will allow for early access to the digital downloads to my photos.

The website for my Patreon is www.patreon.com/ashadmukadam.

Now On Pinterest

I now have two new Pinterest accounts: one is for my photography, and one is for my writing.  So, if you happen to be on there, please give me a follow, and see what I have decided to pin on there:

Photography Pinterest – www.pinterest.com/ashadmukadamphotographer

Writing Pinterest – www.pinterest.com/ashadmukadam

Now on BookBub

I now have an author profile on BookBub.  If you would like to follow me on there, please go to the following link:

Now on Snapchat

I’ve created a Snapchat account, and this will be to primarily post some of my pictures that I have taken.  I am aware of the 24-hour period that the posts stay up for, so how I will use is that at times, I’ll post up pictures that you can see during that 24-hour window.  Sometimes, I might take a picture of the physical copies (paperback and hardcover) of my books so that you can see what they look like in real life.  Other times, I might post a screenshot of my websites, depending on what I have to announce about them.  Finally, I might post screenshots of where you can buy my books (ebook and print) if there’s a new store that sells them, and I’m aware of it.  I won’t be using a Bitmoji, as it isn’t something I’m really into.

To find me and connect with me, either enter my name, or my username @ashadmukadam.  Alternatively, you can go to this link:

My Goodreads Profile

If any of you have been curious about whether or not I’m on Goodreads, I am.  I just haven’t gotten around to sharing the link to my profile in case you want to connect with me there, until now.  So, if you’d like to connect on Goodreads, here is where you can find my profile:

Now on Webtalk

I’ve just joined this new social network called Webtalk.  It seems to be something that combines elements of both Facebook and LinkedIn, and you do get to choose how you would like to arrange your connections (personal vs. professional, as well as subcategories under these categories), and allows you to share your posts according to which set of contacts that you want to see the posts.  If you think that you’d like to try it out, please click on the referral link below to sign up, as right now you can only get an account if someone refers you:

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:

www.instagram.com/amukadamphotographer

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.
