Yea, that is a general description of all professionals really.

I really have a hard time putting a label on it. It is a national pastime now. Retired farts like me and millions of others take photos of birds and wildlife. The sheer numbers must be staggering. And I see so many just drop dead photos.

Presently living in Asia

I've seen work from people who don't call themselves 'pros' whose work is as good as it gets, so I never knock the amateurs in any field of photography. More power to them.
