school of hard knocks!
Opinions are like A-holes. Everyone's got one.
I never enrolled in any courses, is that self taught??
But I learned from others, books, experience and trial and error...
photography is based more on hands on approach rather than reading on books. the more you shoot, the more you understand on composition & exposure.
i'm not stepping on somebody tail or toe, just answering the question "Professional self taught photographers ?"
Eg: Lee Hua jewellery adv. in the shop and booklet. i don't think a 'self taught' can do that.

TS, you might want to read up on mike yamashita.
For me, I learn through handling of different cameras and self read up on photography books and magazine on the basis. Since young I am in love with photography and used various 35mm film cameras till digital compact cameras. Through trial and error method, I learn the hard ways in getting it right.
This thread is getting meaningless and out-of-hand.
Kultchris was asking a serious and relevant question, but some 'senior' members were giving answers like juniors.
