Formerly located in downtown Edmonton for 10 years, Cyclops Photo Studio, a part of Y&Y Photography Studios, is now located on the main street of Legal, AB (see location for full details). We offer professional photography services for all your needs, both commercial and family. We cover portraits, products, events, fashion, pets, and more. We can also shoot on-location in your workplace, event, or home with our mobile studio setup. We use only the finest optics and lighting for our camera systems.

We believe in flexible pricing to suit your direct needs. Not everyone needs a large, extensive photo package. Thus, we offer sessions both small and large. We provide the same high-touch value in all of our packages but break them up into smaller pieces for you to choose from. Why pay for what you don't want or need? We make photography affordable by offering bite-sized options to meet your needs directly.

Makeup and hair services are available at the studio.
Photography classes and workshops, and studio rentals are available (please visit photographers.cyclopsphoto.com).

Amanda Yakem

A Canadian documentary photographer, Amanda Yakem received her photographic education in Kitchener, Waterloo, Ontario at Conestoga College, studying also in journalism, business writing, and business at Durham College in Oshawsa and the Anderson Career Training Institute. Pursuing the perfect landscapes and natural beauty this country has to offer, she then returned to the Alberta prairies where she contunies to capture the essence of Canada through her travels. She has since continued her education with many photographic workshops and annual conventions, always keeping her creativity fresh. Yakem has had her work published and featured in various galleries, art shows, and venues around her hometown of Edmonton, including the Glenrose Hospital, the Bloomin' Garden Show and Art Sale on Alberta Ave, the Deep Freeze Byzantine Winter Festival, and various businesses. She has regularly sold her works at markets in and around western Alberta and southern Ontario, including the Edmonton Heritage Days, Taste of Calgary, the Ponoka Stampede, Vegreville Country Fair, and Christmas Markets at the Old Quebec Street Mall and St. Albert Market. Amanda Yakem's repertoire continues to grow as she finds greater depth in her photographic career.

Ned Yeung

Before becoming a full-time commercial, fashion, and portrait photographer, Ned Yeung was trained in the art of Visual Communication and worked for various notable corporations in the fields of ad design, illustration, image editing, layout. Through his career a shift happened towards the path of photography, a long-time passion for Ned who was once a print and runway model in Chicago, Illinois. After re-training for this field, he decided to open up a full-time photography studio in downtown Edmonton by the name of Cyclops Photo Studio, representing the single eye through which the photographer sees the world - his camera. He has since filled the pages of both National and International product and fashion catalogs, some ranging up to hundreds or thousands of pages thick, working also as head photographer for local model agency Nouveau Riche. After 10 years of running a photo studio in downtown Edmonton, Ned has now moved out north of the city to the small town of Legal with his spouse Amanda, where they have opened up a new photo studio by the name of Y&Y Photography Studios, representing their new family name of Yakem-Yeung. Their new photo studio is larger than ever, and even features a small cafEin the front, where they serve barista-made gourmet beverages, fresh-ground coffee, loose leaf tea, and frozen treats.

Our spacious 3200 square foot studio runs active high-key and low-key studios as well as regular themed photosets, to accomodate all needs.




Also located in Y&Y Photography Studios is our cozy cafe with reading and gaming lounge, serving beverages and treats. Our gourmet coffees and beverages are barista-made with a 15-bar pump-driven machine. Our coffee is fresh ground with each brew, and our teas are all loose leaf.
