    There is, actually. A number of them are around. Sounds like an oxymoron though.

    Err.. oh ok..

    But to me. There is 4 main group.

    1. Pro - Take pic as a main career
    2. Freelance - Take pic for pocket money
    3. Serious amature - Dun take pics for money
    4. Newbie - Just onboard

    Ok corse there is a few in between but there will be too many group if we consider them.

    Eg. Pro who is a newbie, Freelance serious amatuer, balh blah blah.

    A professional programmer is not necessarily better than an amateur. Many top hackers are self-taught and they beat any professional programmers. In the photography field, a full-time photographer is not necessarily better than another amateur, of course depending on comparing whom with whom. But generally speaking professional guys have better experience and are more capable of accomplishing assignments. With the emergence of digital cameras, especially DSLRs, the situation has gradually changed these days. Experience can be gathered through massive shooting under different light conditions for many kinds of themes. Shooting more and showing less, the philosophy of being a professional photographer, are now applicable to an amateur photographer who wants high standard of work. But all in all, it's the person. I won't easily trust a pro simply because he works full time. Show me the pictures with a pro standard, and I would be impressed.

    isn't freelance just meaning the photographer is not tied to any studio or organisation ? he's free to shoot for anyone........

    so you can be a part time freelancer,
    full time freelancer etc... etc...
