To help to submit your profile

Just like me, you are a photographer, not a writer.

Because I am aware writing, an article about yourself can be difficult I set up a question list that you can answer as an aid. You do not have to answer all questions, it is only an indication of what people wants to know, read.

You can copy this question list and paste it in your familiar word processor and copy paste it into the submits your profile page.

Do not forget to upload2 pictures, one of your works and a self-portrait. The maximum size is 600 pixels wide( Jpeg quality 6, normal, 72 dpi).

You can find the requirements here.

Here is the list.
