Looks like you already confused yourself. You say that Professional meant earning from photography, then you move on to preferring a value judgment on their skills. This is just "worthy" vs. "non-worthy" photographers.

When you have to photograph things for other people rather than yourself, you often have to rely on technique rather than inspiration. An amateur can make himself look cool posting a couple of heavily worked photos a month, but that's not a work rate to rely on for earning money.
