If the 'shocking work' is exactly what the buyer likes and is will to pay for, then it makes no difference whether one calls the photographer a pro or not. But the fact that an ignorant buyer is wiling to pay for his work is no indication that the photographer is a pro in the true sense of the word. Of course if many knowledgeable buyers admire and buy his work, then he is without doubt a pro.
