I consider myself a "semi-pro".  That is I am retired with a good pension, so I don't have to do photography to make a living.  Rather I do it because it is fun, I meet interesting people and the little bit I charge pays for my equipment.

However, once someone pays you, you do have a responsibility not to screw up. That means having adequate equipment plus backup.  That means having sufficient technical skills to get the job done.  That means if your are doing portraits having the people skills to get a good picture even with camera shy people.

I enjoy the challenge.
