The very nice way that everyone behaves here has encouraged me to say Hi.

I'm Peter from Northampton. 30 years ago I went to Art school trained as a graphic designer, illustrator and have spent most of my life in a mix of creative work. 20 years in public relations and marketing and before that five years as a freelance illustrator. So my MAC and the creative programmes (Photoshop, Indesign, Painter etc) are things I love.

I've always had olympus cameras from 21 when I bought an OM2N (still in good order 30 years on but not used now) and I still have 3 in everyday use. With digital cameras I have started to be more creative with my photography and natural history subjects (butterflies being a passion since I was a small child). But most of the time the best things are still flukes!

BTW. the name - Art Frames - relates to my picture framing business but seems to suit photography as well.

Big thanks to Ian for the way his team runs things and for the way everyone treats everyone else for helping me (a naturally quiet and anonymous forum watcher) to pop over the parapet.

You're most welcome Peter!

This is our third site and so far all the forums (fora) we operate seem to attract a friendly and informative bunch. I'm hoping the trend will continue! :)

I believe its because four-thirders are somewhat more civilized than those populating other fora. That is a lovely word Ian - fora! Welcome Peter.
Cheers

Welcome Peter. Like yourself I was attracted by the friendliness of this forum.

I believe four thirders are more friendly because the have less weight to carry making them that little more carefree.:rolleyes:

Hope you enjoy your time here.
