Whoa, too many posts at the moment to scan through but I like the idea of snail mailing pics. That would make for a great album or some interesting art for my home. My walls are so bare. Anyone interested in a snail-mail photo-pen-pal in the United States let me know.email removed by epz Oh by the way, I'm a beginner too though I've taken a few photography classes in the long-ago past (ok not THAT long). I've done darkroom work but now I don't have access to one anymore. SO I'm limited to the grocery store developing or what I can print off my computer.

Hey you guys - suggest you do not post your email addresses in any internet forum - there are too many freeks out there just looking to add you to their junk mail list. If you wnt to connect to someone on this site PM them.

I'm with Collywobles on this NEVER NEVER NEVER give your email address out on a public site, it will only attract spam emails and stuff from all sorts of weirdos, John.

Use a secondary addy that you can delete, or a disposable one, I have a disposable addy for each site/company that I use, if too much spam turns up I just remove it from the list.

Really ! Do we believe it prudent to be email someone who says they are a new 15 year old member or even Manuel - Sorry but you will have to show you photo credentials before I'll randomly email someone.
That's kinda the point of sites like this - to share the pics and tips ON THE SITE.

I really wonder if all these new members who provide their email address are genuine.

Well Jackalltog first of all I am indeed very genuine. I am not asking you to mail me anything but clearly is people like you who stop new members to feel confident. Perhaps scared? also you tone cross the fine line of being rude which already tell me a bit of you.

Anyway, thanks for your comments

That's a bit unfair Manuel.
This is predominately a photographic website, not somewhere to come to exchange pen-pal or social details.
All new members here will be made extremely welcome and all of us, including JackAllTog, do our best to make them feel confident but it's a two way street.
You'd do better to involve yourself in some of the photographic aspects of the site, upload some of your work and comment on other peoples' before you start criticising established members for questioning your reasons for being here.

actually if you put 'photography pen pals' into goolge epz comes up top so if thats what your searching for then this site is what you'll get.

Lets start again can we, welcome Manuel Smile

Hey Jester,

Perhaps we have crossed wires somewhere along the line. I am new to photography, new to this forum to. And new to some terms like photo pen pals. I choose this forum because someone recommended. As a new member I was expecting a bit more of collaboration but you cannot denied the comment was a bit extreme. As per my details, all of them are genuine so perhaps some people should not comment so fast, especially if the forum is just for photography,

Manuel, We welcome you. As has been said you really ought to start with some uploads, what gear you have or would like, your experience etc. Pen Pals (your term) are not necessary on this site as the forums and a PM would be all you need to connect with many of us on this site -- just as we are doing now. There was no intention for any of us to be rude and as for my advice I would give to anyone who posts personal email addresses on any site - its good practice not to do it anywhere.

So lets see what you have. (8o)

I would think twice about putting your email on an open forum, you could end up getting more messages than you intended.
