Big Changes at FRAMES

There is some very significant news I would like to share with you today.

We have added FRAMES Photography Circle activities, including all LIVE events with our notable guests, to the standard FRAMES Magazine subscription.

FPC membership is now a part of the standard FRAMES Magazine subscription plan.

Let me break it down for you.

All of the features below are now included in the standard FRAMES subscription.

FRAMES Magazine

It is the core, the heart of our community. It is a quarterly, 112-page thick printed publication of the highest quality in terms of its artistic and tactile features.

In every edition of FRAMES Magazine, we present outstanding work by renowned photographers and lesser-known artists. We pride ourselves on maintaining this unique concept—it’s about meaningful photographic work, not about “big names.”

FRAMES Digital Companions

We release an additional digital publication every month. It complements our main printed editions and provides thought-provoking imagery and written content to keep you engaged and inspired.

Each edition consists of six in-depth photography pieces prepared for you by members of our editorial team and guest contributors.

FRAMES Photography Circle

We like to call it the “icing on the cake.” It’s where all FRAMES subscribers meet, share projects, ideas, and images, and engage in personal conversations. 

But… not only from behind their keyboards.

We regularly meet during our online LIVE video events and talk to each other in person.

PLUS… we invite special guests.

Some of the most knowledgeable photography experts have been our guests in the past, and the very same applies to future events.

Imagine being in the same room and talking photography with Ami Vitale, Alec Soth, Martin Parr, Phil Penman, Nick Brandt, Matt Black…

That’s what is happening in the Circle.

You can also access it all using a special Circle community mobile app.

Now, here comes the most exciting part:

We managed to consolidate all of the above components (including the magazine’s packaging and shipping costs) into one FRAMES membership package, which we now offer for a flat monthly fee of 17 USD.

Do you remember the years of old good photography clubs?

Some of them still exist, and it’s a beautiful thing.

You can think about FRAMES as the most complete photography club you could ever join.

  • LIVE events with some of the most notable photography experts on the planet
  • An international community of like-minded photography enthusiasts
  • monthly digital publications delivered straight to your computer
  • quarterly printed magazine delivered to your mailbox.

It would be an honor and pleasure to welcome you as a FRAMES member.

If you genuinely care about photography, joining FRAMES will be one of your best decisions.

It’s now an all-in-one stop for all things great photography.

I created FRAMES based on my love of this medium, and I am on an ongoing mission to spread this passion to other like-minded photography enthusiasts worldwide.

Join FRAMES today.

You can choose your membership plan here and let’s meet during one of the upcoming FRAMES online meetings.

It would be nice to have you with us.

    Where does Frames stand vis a vis harvesting of images for use in AI?

    Where does Facebook stand?

    Thanks, Lez

      Dear Lez, are you referring to the fact that social media platforms “feed” their AI algorithms with the images we share on their platforms?

    Yes Tomasz

      It’s definitely not an “ideal” situation, but on the other hand – every existing artists is initially “harvesting” other artists’ creative outputs and getting inspired by them before creating their own work. I personally think that concentrating on our own work and regularly presenting it to the world is the way to go forward. Excellent work will always end up on top (also on top of AI creations).

    So basically it is being harvested. I get it.

    I use glass.photo and they have promised to never let AI suck up one’s images. I know you can’t control FaceBook. I’m sure many of my images are being used already by AI. But I think that’s very different from seeing a photograph or a painting that fires up neurons in your brain and inspires us.

    You have only to look at a site like loeildelaphotographie.com to see that excellent work does not always end on top.

    Good luck with Frames. Lez

      Dear Lez,

      Needless to say, images shared on the FRAMES Photography App and inside of the FRAMES Photography Circle can not be “harvested” either. It’s only social media platforms (such like Facebook) that actively participate in the AI training, that will allow AI algorithms to collect these images.
