Sorry for the dumb questions but they are designed to fool the spambots. If you have gotten this far and you are a spammer, please be aware that if you post any spam it will be found and removed, your email address, username, registration IP and posting IP will be recorded, posted in a list of known spammers here and forwarded to various spammer blacklists.

PLEASE READ:  Due to excessive bogus registrations and spam, I have had to add Spambot detection. If for some reason you can't get past the questions above simply send me email with a little bit about yourself (what types of photography you are interested in etc.) and I will manually add you to the forum, usually within 24hrs. If you want to know why I'm doing this, I get on average at least 1000 bogus registration attempts each month. Tough Spambot detectors or registration via personal email seem to be the only ways to prevent this.

You can submit your direct email registration request HERE


If you have problems with registration or if my spam filters are turned up too high and your registration is rejected even though you aren't a spammer, please contact me directly (see the contact info page) and I'll be happy to manually add your registration.

Here's the rest of the agreement:

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum and posting such material will cause your membership to be terminated as well as other possible actions.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. We reserve the right to refuse or revoke your registration if your chosen username is unaccepable. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded and will be used in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP needs to be contacted.
