    Hi everyone,

    I am a photographer, running my photography business in Leeds. My "Justin Zhang Photography" studio locates in Pudsey. I am specialised in wedding and portrait work, setup my own studio this year for more up coming commercial/advertising jobs.

    If anyone needs photograph to be done in any aspect, just quote here and I can sort you out.

    "JustinZhangPhotography.com" is my website.

    My name is Alley and I have recently started 'Fayre by Alley' - a business making and selling a unique Canadian dessert square called the Nanaimo Bar. Pronounced 'nuh-nahy-', it's named after a city on the western coast of Canada. It's a scrumcious 3 tiered bar: a cookie, cocoa, coconut and butter base, a creamy custard middle and a chocolate top. It's a Canadian favourite, not available here in the UK and I make them right here in Leeds.

    I had a great debut at the Kirkstall Abbey Deli Market last Saturday (completely sold out) and will be there the last Saturday of every month until November. I hope to supply the Bars to independent restaurants, cafe and coffee shops in Leeds as well as bespoke orders for any occasion. Happy to provide samples to interested enterprises and individuals!

    I'm a Leeds photographer - mainly covering weddings, events/parties and corporate functions like conferences.

    In answer to the Yell question above please contact me before signing any contract with Yell. I have a story to tell!

    Sorry - I only just saw your post. I only take in my regulars here and there as I get so many requests from them and my place is quite small. Some other dog walkers I know do take other dogs in, though. PM me if you'd like some info. :)

    Ollie - I may be back to quiz you about Yell. Intrigued. I spoke to someone the other day and they seem to make up the rules as they go along.

    For eg, I've never paid extra for Leeds-wide coverage, yet some woman was telling me the other day it costs £180 to extend a search further than your own postcode! She gave me the number of the area rep to call. He's on a landline in Scotland. If they think I'm calling that they must be joking after I've been coughing up megabucks to advertise with them for the last few years.

    As for Gumtree. I had an ad on there I thought had expired but found it, so decided to renew it and pay £13.95 to have it featured at the top for 2 weeks. A day later it disappeared. When I asked why, I was told ads only last 60 days. Mine was almost at 60 days and so, although I'd paid for it to be featured, it would expire anyway.

    The woman did agree to reinstate it and start me another 60 day period but I've now found another odd thing. If i search on Dog Walking - Leeds - Petsitters/Dog Walkers in the search boxes, it doesn't show up. If I go straight to the Petsitters/Dog Walkers category, it does show up.

    I'm losing the will to live.
