Who are GYST services?

GYST is most definitely a ‘who are’ and not a ‘what is’. It’s a concept and a commitment, from two experienced computer geeks and a one-man design agency. Between us we provide a unique range of services to clients across three continents and turn problems into solutions.

GYST stands for ‘Get Your Stuff Together’ and started life many years ago in England.


Networks and database design evolved into I.T. consultancy and business services, paying the bills and funding a move to Canada in 2004. Building software solutions became document production and technical writing and from there sequed into web site development and design, SEO, and site optimization. That’s a short hop to graphic design, online marketing, print advertising, and photography, which has been our focus for the last 20 years.


Nikki and Carl both have technical backgrounds. Carl owned an Internet Cafe and for a time played games for a living. Nikki has worked in computer configuration and repair for over 20 years, including a 10 year stint as office manager for an internet provider. She diagnosed client computers over the phone, ran email systems and servers, and took care of hardware repairs when needed. Nikki is a marvel at data recovery and rarely loses a patient so if your photos are at risk, she’s the one to contact.

When it comes to computer repairs in the Niagara region, Nikki should be on your speed dial. Nikki specializes in Hardware replacement, upgrades and data recovery. With over 30 years of practical experience she can replace components and often reclaim critical data without loss.


Corporate and large events are a specialty for GYST. We provide conference, destination wedding and multi-day shoots. From the village hall to exotic destinations including Florida and Times Square. Our print experience provides post-event items like photo books and posters, keepsakes and wall art. Available for on-location shoots including executive head shots, family groups, portraits, and model shoots. Have gear, will travel.

Fine Art: Our Photo Gallery offers worldwide shipping and a huge choice of formats and framing options for wall art which make popular canvas wraps and decor for the home or wall.
