overview extend a welcome to all photographers interested in amateur microscopy and photomicrography.


The forums and galleries are open to participation by all registered members regardless of their level of experience. Discussions, the exchange of information and the presentation of images are the foundation of our activities.


Photomicrographers and photomacrographers share many common interests and it would seem appropriate for the two disciplines to be unified in an online community whilst maintaining a respectful distinction.



Thank you for visiting. We look forward to your participation.
