The Jarvie #SUL - "THE Suggested Photographers"

"The Best Suggested Photographers List... on the planet"

Because i'm just dumb/silly enough to stir things up and do something controversial today
I defy you to repost this list and talk about how much you hate me! haha... or don't... in fact... why waste your energy hating? Embrace your new overlords

ABOUT THE LIST Because there's no secrets here
- Google has presently chosen 30 people in their photographers-artists list so that's how many I've chosen
- Yes, This is honestly who I'd put on the #sul   if it were for me to decide.
- I used all sorts of criteria and just plain gut feelings. Don't even try to understand the beautiful complexities, haha
- I left out all the amazingly awesome photographers that I didn't know (why? Because... DUH!)
- I took out many old-time-SULers from the list because they already have 1.5 million+ followers and I think hey... "mission accomplished"
- I left in a few old-time-SULers ... but just barely... many of them really are doing awesome stuff (obviously).
- I made this list a week ago before google added athena, barry, elia, nicole and brian  (Turns out I can see into the future)

- When do you take someone off the SUL? Who knows... when they start sucking or when they hit 1 million?
-If you spent weeks more studying would your choices be different? Yes
-Will your choices change? Yes
-Are many of these people your friends? Do you feel that's un-fair? Yes/No
-Are you worried some friends will be offended? No, They're my friends aren't they? (They should understand me)
-Are you concerned you're missing worthy photographers? Yes, But do I let my fears and worries prohibit me from doing something beneficial for others? No
-Why don't you have business pages on the list? I haven't come across one that is really awesome.
-Where is google's SUL list?

1. - "Personally, I'd rather have 10 million google+ users spending a 20-30 hrs reviewing tens of thousands of photographers and making really informed decisions, but Jarvie's list comes in a close second."
2. - "Shared"
3. - "The confidence to produce a list such as this, in the face of worries of offending friends, is inspiring and it makes me want to make my own #MySUL list"
4. - "Who is Jarvie"
5. - "Jarvie has balls of steel for facing the naysayers and shoving it in the face of the haters"
6. - "Even though I'm not on the list I appreciate what you have attempted and I won't even ask you put me on the next list and i'll simply try to earn your admiration through my hard work, inspiring pictures and kindness"
7. - "I added the circle"
8. - "Rot in he!! you nazi-commie-socialist-tyrant scum"
9. - "Jarvie is a sexy beast"
10. - "Wow this is such a great list, thanks for putting in all that time and effort and thought"
11. - "Good list...I'm already following all 30 so I agree with the list."
12. - "This list is approximately 45 times better than Google's own list... really Google should be ashamed they didn't think of it themselves"
13. - "I'm offended"
14. - "If you don't share this list you are a coward and an infidel... oh and you'll have bad luck all week"
15. - "your check's in the mail."
