a pro photographer is one who makes a significant or all his income making images. The vast majority of pro photographers are employed by scientific and medical labs, news outlets, as adjuncts to sight seeing tours, wedding etc, not really the glamorous jobs by enlarge. product photography and advertising photography is a big employer as well.

Are you really a professional photographer if you are just doing photography for a wage per hour? Or are you just another employee who happens to work with a camera?
