This discussion comes up in the context of music all the time, and there is no simple answer.

I get paid to photograph buildings. It's /part/ of my job. Does that make me a professional? I would say no.

My wife plays violin very well. She has a leadership role in a minor orchestra, and leads a quartet that plays for weddings and other occasions. She doesn't make nearly enough money to live off of, but no one would doubt that she's a professional.

That's the best response I've ever heard on this oft had debate!
