RG Forums have changed to Pro Photo Community

Is now…

The forums formerly known as the Rob Galbraith Professional Digital Photography Forums have been taken over by the owners of the Digital Wedding Review web site.

The former Galbraith Forum URL re-directs to

From the new web site:
Welcome to the new home of the Rob Galbraith forums on the web!
The new forums require a $25 annual subscription for full viewing and posting access.
You must have a regular registration to be able to subscribe.
Once you login with your regular registration you will see the “Subscription Area” in the upper right of the menu bar.

There is an archived version of the old RG forums that is supposed to remain free to the general public according to a post by Drew Strickland.

There remains 4 free public forums;

Pro – Student Meeting Place
For discussion of the art and business of photography by both professional photographers and aspiring students of the craft. Pose questions to working pros, request help with college photography assignments and more.

Photo Mechanic
For discussion of the use of the image browser Photo Mechanic in a professional digital photographer’s workflow.

The Trading Post
For the listing of photography equipment for sale. Only the photographer selling the equipment may post here, and only the personal equipment of the photographer may be listed. The responsibility for the successful completion of a transaction commenced from a listing here is entirely the responsibility of the buyer and the seller.

Product Announcements
For the announcement of new digital photography equipment and software by the vendors themselves. Announce new software, software updates and digital photography gear for the professional photographer.

Posting to these forums seem to require user registration.

According to a post on Michael Reichmann’s Luminous Landscape Forums (where a number of former RG Forum members have discussed the closing and then re-opening), former RG Forum members who were banned have been invited back and even one former banned members is now a moderator. (see the post in the Medium Format Digital Backs and Photography forum at Luminious Landscape) although several former RG Forum members are trying to get their old RG Forum posts deleted from the archive.

    Banned members back? Don’t think so. At least its not across the boards. I can’t even get Drew to remove my 2500+ posts even after two emails requesting removal. Can’t do it myself; I’m locked out (banned and NOT invited back).

    The posts on Luminous Landscape sum this mess all up. Better to go there since the RG refugees seem to be hanging there and Michael is very hands off when it comes to moderation unlike the older RG site.

    Without a good community of posters, what’s the point of dropping $25 on this new site? I smell failure.

    With all due respect to RG, he should have “quit while he was ahead,” rather than have his good name mixed in with this (apropriately dubbed by AR) “mess.”

    Ah well….
