All there is to it is that one needs to be a skilled photographer. There is no need to be artistic necesserly.

One needs to know his equipment and know how to use it. Framing/composition is a matter of learning to a good extent. Post processing is also a matter of learning. There are tones of succefull photographers out there with no artistic ability. But they undestand what sells or pleases their clients.

A better equipment doesn't make one better photographer but it allows one to take better pictures if he/she understands how to use the extra performance parameters and reflects them on his work.

Skill level of a photographer and level of his equimpment go hand and hand. Both are important. You cannot exclude one from the other. But there is a point of no return that is highly skill & application dependent. Not everone benefits from having higher level camera. It might actually impar and interfere with photo taking toutine. Sometime an upgrade can be used as a motivation tools as well.
