Re: At least 10% of your income comes from photography

We discuss it here, we see people say 'I am no Pro..', but these folks take darned good photos.

So what make a 'Pro' a 'Pro'?

It used to be if you made 50% or more of your income from a 'hobby' then you were considered a 'Pro'

So I say that if you have a day job, but you do photography on weekends and it's at least 10% of your total income, then it's more than just a hobby.

I'm curious then - if someone works in-house for a corportate communications department working as a photographer, videographer, graphic artist, writer, etc. are they not pro's or are they pro's?
