..."legitimate professionalism in photography"... meaning 'men'?

wow.

No, it has nothing to do with gender. I know many fabulous female photographers who would blow the doors off MWAC types in photographic knowledge, quality and profssionalism. It's about learning all aspects of the craft, AND NEVER STOP LEARNING! Honing it into a hopefully good profit based business (legal one at that) and treating it like a passion in a career. Too many of the modern MWAC and even GWAC types are into it for the fad they see it as. Most will not have any staying power to celebrate a 3rd. year in business let alone creating and maintaining a reputation as being a true pro photographer.

Look many of these types do it for cash under the table avoid paying taxes, licenses, fees and have NO INSURANCE! That is not being a PRO, it's being a huckster taking advantage of rather ignorant and all too often CHEAP customers.

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!
