Brian,

There are any number of professional consumers hereabouts; also many professional self-deluders (aided & abetted by advertising men) intent on a somewhat narcissistic self-belief in their Special Vision and Magic shutter-button finger.

Naturally this goes well with the acquisition of gubbins that, although far beyond their understanding, does serve as a sort of proclamatory emblem of photographic "worth".  Hang the Great Machine around your neck (label frontwards) and strut about snappin' importantly!

Perhaps there are also one or two professional photographers, although these are a dying breed, killed by what we in Blighty would call "cowboys" were they plasterers or drain-fixers (i.e. they adopt the title of a profession but seem to neglect the necessary skills).

Still, this is the post-modern world and everyone is what he says he is, no matter how bizarre the disjoint atween the proud titles and reality!

SirLataxe, whose own title is also entirely imaginary.
