I'm an amateur - would like to be professional.
In this circle are photographers of all levels: hobby, amateur and professional.  Since quality of a circle matters to me more than quantity the people in this circle were handpicked and frequently checked. 

You're in this circle --> please reshare it publicly !
You're not in one of my circles yet but would like to be included --> let me know.

The next editions will contain only active photographers who RESHARE the circles publicly. The passive ones I will keep in my circles as long as possible but there will be no more public sharing for them. Don't we all want the quality photographers network to grow? Then please support this by being active.

Wish you all a good start in this week!
