Can you define a 'Professional' photographer? Because one has a pro set-up, does that make him a 'pro'? Now a 'Pro' using a point & shoot, now not a 'pro'? A professional photographer is mainly a matter of opinion. Sure there are lots of pro's who claim to be pro, but in reality, they really don't know what they are doing. Then there are photographers who really know how to take a photo and edit and you would think they are pro's but they do not consider themselves 'pros'.
I am an advanced photographer. I know how to take photo's, right angles, rules of thirds, what have you. Can I be considered a pro? Sure, but I'm I? By no means. I just have that knack for photography? I know how to use pro software to make my photo's look stunning. I've been shooting for a long time, lots and lots of practice and time to get to the point I am at today. A good camera and a good lens doesn't make you pro by any means. As I can take the same photo with a 50 dollar point and shoot and still 'awe' people with my creativity and eye for photography.
Again, Define a 'professional'. (no pun intended, just curious what you mean by that).
