    Default Amateur or Pro ?

    How to tell an amateur from a pro photographer? Huh?

    How do you differenciate them?

    Well look at these two and tell me if they are amateur or pro?

    Well it is not just the equipment.

    It is also the attitude.

    Maybe not ! Maybe yes !

    But a pro that has been exposed to that kind of situation for hundreds of times, will certainly care much less. He will just want to do his job and move on with his life.

    A newbie, may be more sensitive to this new kind environment.

    I know the first time I did, the first five minutes, I could not remember my camera settings.

    Then after that it was just another shoot.

    a professional photographer is simply one who earns money from photography as a primary source of income i thought

    so the terms "amateur" and "professional" have nothing to do with photographic skill.. so how to tell

    there are lousy "professional" photographers and good "amateur" photographers.. of course by logical deduction one would say that for the "professional" group you would have to have some sort of minimum standard.. or at lesat very good pr.. or the guy would starve

    hmm... remind me of a phrase...

    Professionals can't STAND amateurs who think they are professionals...
    Amatures always like to STAND and act like professionals...

    This is a outSTANDing issue...
