Hi! My real name is Frank, I live in Europe - Belgium. I started this website in April 2006... At first, the programming and design of this website was more like an excercise for me, but when the site started to get more and more popular, I became obsessed with it and kept improving it ever since. I'm always amazed to see how people on here improve their skills over time and I'm glad Pxleyes is helping people to get better!

I'm returning to moderating after taking a break, trying to give a bit back to the site that has given me so much. I've been using Photoshop for many years now, all self taught from tutorials. I also love photography and with the help from many great people here, hope to improve my skills.

I live in New York City, I love Art, Sci-Fi, B-Movies and building Scale Model Aircraft and Spaceships. I've been a Commercial Artist for more than thirty years having experience in Illustration, Art Direction, Graphic Design and Movie Advertising. Currently I'm involved in the Animatic and Test Commercial Field where the use of computers prompted me to learn Photoshop. A colleague introduced me to Pxleyes and it has been enormously helpful. I love the creativity and skills seen here making this a very stimulating environment and a great place to learn.

Hello there! My name is Henk. Originally from the Netherlands but now living in Argentina. I've been at Pxleyes since end June 2008, I found it by accident and stayed ever since. I can call myself a designer, right now I mostly do illustration work. I started using PS (version 3) during my study, Illustration design. I learned most of it by using it alot and with quite some trial and error. A place like Pxleyes is great for further improvement of skills! Other interests: movies (unfortunately not 2 times a week to the cinema anymore), animation, design in general and I should do some more swimming.

My first name is Rob, been a member of PXLeyes since february 2008 (PST still in those days). That's also the moment I started using Photoshop in an artistic way. Doesn't mean I'm new to this all, originally I'm a graphic designer. Always loved to draw and I'm open to any kind of new software I can find, specially if it's graphical. I'm married to Elke, who is also a mod on this site, a.k.a. Lelaina. My native language is Dutch, but I'm living in Germany which means I also speak German. So you can contact me in both languages (besides English) if you have questions / problems. Best part about PXLeyes to me is watching members grow and develop their (artistic) skills and techniques, other members taught me a lot about Photoshop and I'm always willing to help others.

Hi, my name is Elke and I live in a small town in Germany called Celle. I made an education as kindergarten teacher, studied social science with a major in social psychology for 4.5 years, but wasn't able to finish it. Now I work in a kindergarten with children between 2 and 6 years. I love it to read and spend time with my beloved husband, robvdn, who is also a mod here. I joined Pxleyes in September 2008 and I can't think of a better place to learn and to develop your skills. I learned everything here and felt home from the first day on. If you speak German and have any questions about the site, you can contact me, whenever you want.

Hello, My name is James (known here as itsmymoment) and I have been here at PxlEyes since Aug of 2009. I currently live in Tamaqua, PA, USA. I have had a camera by my side since I can remember and have been truly blessed in life by having a lovely, supportive wife and five children by my side as well. I also have been fortunate enough to earn a good living at what I love to do by starting my own studio "It's My Moment Photography". My wife and I volunteer many hours taking portraits of those less fortunate for no cost for several charitable organizations as well. I love to teach and any questions are always welcome as I instruct students and beginners the basics of photography in my spare time. PxlEyes has reignited my passion for photography in many ways and I truly love the competition and camaraderie here.

Hi my name is Amanda (Members from here know me as MnMCarta) and I live in Florida. Been here all my life but a few years as a kid that which I can't remember where those places were at. I have been in photography now for about 4 years and lovin every minute of it! Was intruduced to PXL a year ago and have been hooked ever since! I enjoy my studio work and getting out in the world exploring things much closer than before with macro photography. I don't think I really have one particular style I tend to stick with but macro is my favorite thus far. I like to experiment with a lot of stuff and teach those that want to know if I can help them.

Hi, my name is Vibeke (Friiskiwi), I live in Nelson, New Zealand. Been here for 8 years, it's a really beautiful part of the world. I have previously lived in Auckland, London, Stockholm and Copenhagen, where I was born. I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. I went to a photography school in Stockholm in the early 60th, full time for 2 years. Have worked on and off with photography most of my adult life, including having a school photography business with my husband for 20 years. I joined the 'Old site' late 2008 / early 2009. I initially joined for the Photoshop contests, but the photography side won me over. It has re-awakened my love of photography. I have learned so much here, and hope I can give something back.

Hi. My name is Mark, and I live in beautiful upstate New York in a rural village of about 2,500 and I have been here since it was photoshoptalent.

Although I started there to learn about Photoshop, I naturally gravitated toward the Photography section when it was developed. I have been interested in photography since I was a child running around with a Kodak X-45, but have begun to be seriously interested in it for about the last six years.

In order to support my photography habit I work as a professor in the Humanities Department at our local college. I have been teaching for over 25 years and can't really imagine doing anything else. My wife and I have two sons, and all three of them tolerate my occasional requests to be models for various shots. Since I don't really have the time or funds to travel the world, one of my favorite aspects of this site is its international nature, allowing us all to see views and activities from all over the globe.
