Re: What is a 'Pro' Photographer, really?

So TODAY, what makes a 'Pro'?

Ideal world = you make the main portion, or a reasonable portion, of your living from photography. 
You might not be as good as some amateurs, they often have more time to play and refine technique, but your work is decent and consistent.

real world = as above, but add in the elitist tosser waynker type of person - the art photographer and the celebrity photographer.
Quality is as above but the poser photographer's work is universally shiit, overblown, contrasty artified crap.
