Was hoping for a little more than that? I would say wedding photographers are a good definition of a professional photographer. Making a living taking pics and selling them. But wildlife photography is a lot different than a professional wedding or portrait photographer. Or maybe I am wrong?

Presently living in Asia

Other than the subject matter and the conditions, what's different?  The wedding photographer makes money providing a service to couples getting married and is paid for it.  The wildlife photographer provides a service selling images of wildlife to clients for specific purposes, and is paid for it.  They are both being paid for providing images.
