Join us in celebrating National Photo Month, the PMA’s initiative to spark creativity in photography
With the winter season (hopefully) behind us, it’s time to look forward to sunshine and clear skies. While we’re all outside dusting off our cameras and shooting anything shiny or colorful, it’s a good season for some friendly competition and encouragement! What better way to start it out with a whole month dedicated to Photography?
This coming May starts National Photo Month. Created and promoted be the PMA, this “holiday” month supports photographers and creators of imagery everywhere by promoting education, contests, resources and community involvement in regards to photography. Whether you’re a student, hobbyist or professional, everyone can benefit from Photography month.
So what kinds of things should you shoot during National Photo Month? Besides the obvious answer of “anything you want”, it’s an even better idea to use the month to take experimental photos and push the borders more than usual. Use sources of inspiration like Pinterest and Tumblr blogs to find information on different tips to try, or perhaps subject matter you’ve not yet explored!

It’s the middle of Summer! Have you built up your fair share of summer photos? Whether you’re stocked up on pictures of your kids at the beach or landscape photography in the mountains, you’ll defintitely want to display those images in the best way possible.
Our frames are built to be versatile to fit whatever needs your may be, whether that’s fancy, professional or fun. For bright-colored photos based in nature, our Barnwood series is always a favorite. Our customers also seem to have a preference for our black and white picture frames, both being perfect for nearly any occasion.
You can also order samples of our mouldings from each of our category pages (wood frames, metal frames, poster frames etc.) and we will send you a few inches for free! All of our frames are delivered completely assembled (except for our U-Frame metal kits), so you can focus on froming your work instead of sweating over piecing together your frame.

For those looking to get some great shots of butterflies, I can’t think of a better place or time. Now through June 30, 2013, the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati Ohio’s Eden Park is holding it’s annual butterfly show.
The sound of water flowing, bursts of colorful flowers, and alluring musical rhythms will accompany you as you stroll along the centuries old passages with their marketplaces hung with woven carpets, embroidered fabrics, sparkling jewels and carved woods. Experience the essence of Morocco— etched by nature into one of the world’s most beautiful countries…
If you go, cameras are indeed welcome and we highly recommend that you take one with you to capture all the beauty offered and the look of wonder on the faces of the children and adults as the butterflies land on precious fingers, shoulders and more. Once you’ve collected your memories, don’t forget about the picture frames!
