I present: The 119 Most Interactive Photographers on Google+

Now our community becomes even stronger
And I will continue to keep my eyes and ears open to find those that are involved.

Circle Sharing is New as of today.
I suggest you do the following (if you don't already have a system)

1.You can click where it says "Add Circle"

2. Give it your own name
(Most likely "Most Interactive Photographers" or "Jarvie's List of Interactive Photographers")

3. Then click "Create or Add Circle"




Last month I had lunch with +Brian Rose and the Santa Monica portion of the G+ photos-team and we talked about how Google+ puts an emphasis on helping people quickly develop a good group of people in your circles.

You start Google+ following no one.
Google+ let's you add from your Gmail contacts or even your Yahoo contacts, it also suggests users and now it even has a suggested users list.

My Take:
People need a Social Network of people to interact with when you first join google+
If there aren't many people it's not much of a Network and if they don't interact it's not very Social

You can follow 10 people or 10k people that do not interact (share, comment, hangout) and your total would be Zero interaction
Or you can focus on befriending people that are more prone to interact.


Most Interactive photographers:
This is my list of photographers that are most likely to interact with you on Google+.
The most typical ways to interact are in Comments, Shares and Hangouts.

You can also see the list here:

My Experience
I am very active on Google+ and believe I have seen most of the other photographers that seem to interact.
However, I can really only see who interacts when it comes to my experiences. (I assume that's understood)

Some people come and go but all of these people on the list have also been consistent.

I of course will be missing people.
And this is not a list of the best photographers, some of them are just starting in photography.

My Promise:
If you follow this group of 119 photographers there will never be a dull moment on Google+
Provided you start to interact as well.
"You must put in effort in order to reap a reward"


If you know of someone not on the list that you believe is really interactive in the Google+ Photography community speak up in the comments and the +1s

Photographers: If you want a really interactive and fun experience on Google+ then invest the time and make sure you're following all 119 of these photographers and you will see the value of Google+ increase many fold. (A Jarvie Promise)

Thank you for sharing the actual circle +Scott Jarvie (as well of making the list, of course).
getting "error creating circle", I think I broke Google Plus
You ain't so bad yourself sugarlumps.
If I comment on this post, am I interactive enough to make the cut? How about if I emoticon? :-) Twice. :-)
119 is 911 reversed. this must be a photographer conspiracy. :P
+Chris Sewell Oh believe me, I'd totally buy my way in for a shot from Italy. ;) I'm always looking for an excuse to post another one.
Great idea! Thanks for the heads up!
+Elia Locardi That's the ticket! You're now #120 (since we've talked other places as well) - So for the next issue. (Assuming you're still going)
Hey, thanks a lot Jarvie! - I'm honored to be in this list.
Thanks so much for sharing this!! I'm just starting out in photography and this circle is perfect for learning and sharing
+Scott Jarvie Well, I keep a pretty steady pace. I'm not sure if my caffeine addiction fuels my rampent insomnia or my rampent insomnia fuels my caffeine addiction... On the plus side, both fuel my photo processing so I guess they level each other out. ;)
This is really an Awesome feature!!...and Thanks for sharing Scott...One question though... When I add a Circle shared by another person and if I have I already have some ppl in that list....How do I prevent duplicate contacts any Idea?

Thanks for adding me, Jarvie. Now I know why all of a sudden I got 100+ more followers since last night :)
Thanks man, you're the COOLEST! :)
+Scott Jarvie Looks like I am in there - thanks for the mention.. so i can thank you for the insanity this evening.. :)
+Kelly Branan You better start posting more!! ;) Good thing you comment a lot and get on hangouts every so often! ;)

+Brent Burzycki yep... you're interactive so how could I not!
Now if I could only figure out how to join hangouts from my iPhone I would be set!
Thanks for this great list +Scott Jarvie I decided to add all (some I already have) to my Design & Photography circle....still need more designers though :-)
Thanks for the List Jarvie. I am honored to make the list! I was very anti social networking until Google Plus. Love the community here!
Thanks for sharing your circle. I've added them!
At least, if everything else fails, G+ will be power house photography community!
I have a deeper look to the list. Less could be more. Lots of posts aren't about quality. 
LOL, cute list. I consider myself quite interactive on my own posts and a vast amount of others, even yours! If I keep saying nice stuff and posting nice photo art and keep trying to make you laugh on your posts will you circle me into this circle pretty please? 8-D +Scott Jarvie
Thanks for this, I'll be on my way to start interacting more around here although at the moment I am "camera-less" :-(
well, yes I've got one but I really miss my Sony A33 which is in repair
Hey +Scott Jarvie ... I am going to protest... I did not see my name in that circle :] .... Thanks for sharing!!!
Thanks for including me, Jarvie. You're always the Jarviest.
This circle sharing business is a bit like a roller coaster ride! Thanks for including me, +Scott Jarvie!
+Kerry Murphy are we up front with our hands in the air?
(where were you at yesterday at this time? Now that you're up past 3500)
Thank you so much for the luv! Much appreciated :)
+Scott Jarvie - Either all the way up front or all the way in the back!
I was at 1500. I don't know how you celebs manage this! haha.
+Kerry Murphy My biggest problem now is that i can't add bacck everyone. I need to pick who is worthy and who's not. And i hate to leave people behind.
+Scott Jarvie I'm not sure if my phone just posted your email instead of your name! But wanted to mention how useful this kind of celebrity list sharing really helps the lesser known folks here. A very good thing for us indeed. I was really only teasing you earlier (ish...). ;-)
added and shared! Thanks for pulling together this list! Amazing what G+ has done for my inspiration level...and all of the amazing places I'm noting in my bucket list to travel and now new connections to make when I get there! Thank you +Scott Jarvie
+matt adcock for sure... where you guys at? Mexico? How close to cancun? (Anytime you guys are in Utah... you have a place)
+Scott Jarvie 45 minutes south of Cancun in Playa del Carmen, weather rocks year round and the waters beckon! I want to visit Utah and nature nut myself around the state for a few weeks :) i love traveling and shooting....thanks for the invite :) Come on down to Playa! saludos desde playa :)
Dont Worry +Andrea Acailawen I can certify that you are interactive.... you are "Interactive Approved" .... maybe you will make it into the updated version for sure.
You da man, Mr. Jarvie. Many thanks to you. Now I just need to get back from visiting my folks in Lake Tahoe so I can start interacting with the G+ang again.
Thanks for sharing this great circle. I found that I had a lot of these great photographers in my photography circle already but there were a few I missed. Thanks again!
+Ricardo Williams you know what you're right... She has been pretty interactive from what I've seen. +Andrea Acailawen in the next version along with a few others I'm sure. I'll keep an eye out for the next couple of weeks.
I am retarded... I wasn't even on my own list!! :((
Scott, that is sad, yet a little funny. Guess it's time for a redo! :)
+Scott Jarvie I hope to make a list like this someday. I'm switching most of my photography related work to public for a better appearance. Thanks for the share!
+Niki Aguirre Actually, you were listed earlier today in one of the a shared circles of female photographers. That's how I ended up circling you! =)
btw, I agree with your choices! I had some great interactions with a goodly number of folks on this list, so thanks for putting this together! G+ is so much more fun when we can all talk and learn and share together. AND have fun!
+Scott Jarvie If I already have most of these photographers in my Circles, does that make me Interactive?? Hmmm.
Would love to be added to your circle :)
Cool list. I like the idea a lot. I still find many photographers have secured a G+ account, but aren't using it very much yet. I follow some, hoping that when they see they have followers they post more. If there is room on you r list, I would like to be added.
Circle sharing is a huge step forward for G+ for just this reason. Thanks for sharing this!!
Too easy, thanks for sharing this circle.
I think you should definitely include +Gordon Laing in this list. He's a living and breathing wikipedia of camera information.
It seems the photogs I'd recommend are on the list or have been recommended. Thank you +Gordon Laing for the thumbs up! You're a peach. ;-))
Nice of you to share this, thank you. I'm new to G+ so this kind of thing is very useful to me. Thanks m8!
Hi Scott, Thanks for sharing, would it be possible to add me to this circle?
I'm a pretty active photographer on g+ also. Would really appreciate if you'd have a look at my profile and consider including me. Thanks! :)
i am interactive. and hyperactive too ;)
+Scott Jarvie Hi Scott, I will appreciate it if you could add me to the artist / photography / designer / illustrator circle for the next update. Thanks, Tanya
