    Hey guys,

    I know there are a few members here in my area, and I wanted to give you all the heads up that I have now opened a new studio in downtown Edmonton, right at the heart of Chinatown on 97 Street. The first week of October is going to be my Grand Opening week, and I will be having portrait specials (40% off) and refreshments. Come down and check it out if you're in the area... I would love to network and meet up with all the other :43: users in this area and talk shop.


    I think many of you guys knew that I had some serious issues with crazy crooked landlords in the past, so this means that I am finally breaking free of that carp and this is a huge load off my back! I am finally back in business the way I want to be, and able to continue on my work hassle-free. This new location is very convenient, and I have a healthy 520 Sq. Ft. to work with, including reception area, office, and studio. This coming year is going to be very exciting for Cyclops Photo Studio! :tongue:

    Never have a carp as a landlord, you'll end up looking like a sucker, just floundering around looking for somewhere else to perch.

    I hope you got a whale of a deal on your new digs.


    (Congratulations on the new location - I'm afraid Detroit is a bit to far for me to pop over to visit right now, but I wish you much success and even more fun).

    But Ned! Whaddaya gonna do about the darkroom? :eek:

    If that's your new studio setup (in the Simple Lighting Setup for Portraits thread) it looks good.

    Hope you'll have a great time in the new digs. :2thumbs:

    Now that I am a landlord (nice ring to it) I can say with certainty that your characterization is redundant.

    Thanks guys!

    @tdekany Happy birthday! :D We're probably going to have a post-opening party on the 6th... after hours, so we can have adult beverages and crank up the music. ;)

    @RobWatsonL lol, I see what you mean!

    @BarefootPilgrim Yush, that would be the setup!

    @Fmrvette lol. How did you know I have a secret love of fish puns? One of the local bands here made an entire song full of them. I think it was the Fish Stew song or something, I forget. xD I think the band was Hookaman, but don't quote me on that... it was a long time ago, when I was young and handsome.

    No wonder you seem to have been a little scarce around these parts lately. Congrats and good luck on the new venture.

    Unfortunately, I've got to RSVP with my regrets that I cannot make it to your opening. Although it's a beautiful drive from Seattle to Edmonton, but my current schedule prevents me from making the journey at this time. :wink:

    Congratulations Ned, wishing your studio a great future! Edmonton is a bit too far to join your party I'm afraid. ;-)

    I was just in Edmonton for business on Thursday and Friday. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on 104th, and had dinner at the Brazilian Steakhouse.
