Just some random thoughts for whaterer they are worth.

1) If you post process your photos to improve their quality, you are probably a photographer.

2) You don't have to be a good photographer to be a photographer.

3) Some people say that if you only take snapshots you are not a photographer, but until john A G's recent contribution to this thread I have not seen their definition of a snapshot.

4) Most of the people who post photos on Facebook are not photographers.

5) If photography is a significent hobby for you you are probably a photographer.

6) If you use words like gear, glass, render ,raw, image, capture, cropped sensor, unsharpen mask, etc you are probably a photographer.

7) If you know what the reciprocal of the focal length means you are probably a photographer.
