Here are photographs of groups of people taken by amateur or professional photographers, but not in a studio. We'll save the group studio portraits for another page. Where it's not certain whether it's amateur or professional, it's included also.
Remember, as always, you can click on any photograph and go to the Flickr site. Click on it again there and get the largest size available.
