    actually the word "professional" got something to do with the specialised skill hor?

    bcos there is no such thing as a professional clerk as their job is more or less general in nature.

    correct me if i am wrong.

    i tink judging from another point of view...professional can be viewed as an attitude.... it really depends on whether if u wanna see it as an adjective or a verb...

    the difference is marketing

    full time earn less
    pro earn more

    for doing the same thing
    it is also the look, if you want to be pro
    you must look like a pro

    easier if you have a camera crew with uniform
    running around setting the set.

    all you do is look for the perfect angle

    they mean the same to me... it's like just a term... usually most photographers will be humble to just call themselves 'photographer' instead of putting the 'pro' (or this and that, unless it's of vocation.. press, wedding, studio, etc..) in front... FT is a term if they work more then 40 hrs weekly (or usually employed), and not worth to mention i think...

    to me it's straightfoward, a photographer is someone who take photographs for a living, it's his professional, anyone makes (or can make) money to feed himself with camera is a photographer regardless of full-time/part-time/bridal/sport/press/journalistic/etc.. or wether he call himself professional, chief, principal, main, celebrity (all for marketing purpose?)...

    i too regard those with camera/equipments, not making a living out of it as hobbyist... no matter how well they can shoot, any 'professional' standard, or in-depth understanding.. photography is just a past time to any hobbyist, .. reason why i say so cause we cant have everyone who owns camera calling themselves photographer, and some who take better pictures even can themselves pro.. i think it's fair to those photographers who do photography as a 'professionalism'.. well, just my 2 cents...

    it doesn't matter..

    It's those hobbyists that wanna act like pro, who have no code of conduct when doing shoots with other photographers that are a pain in the ass (or should i say, will have a pain in the ass)...
