Re: Amateur vs Professional

"Enthusiast"; "Amateur" is one who works to a Professional standard, sans remuneration. For instance, old Olympic sportsmen, who dealt with pressure of the kind you and I will probably never have to deal with in our lives.

Besides, when you put "professionals" in pressure situations, particularly in flashy jobs like wedding photographer or rock musician, you often end up seeing that they're nothing but paid enthusiasts as well. Professional discipline is not something you can be taught in school, let alone having it born just for taking money; it's something you acquire through blood and sweat, which is often lacking when anyone with a SLR camera and decent glass can call himself a "pro", and look the part 'til the contract is signed.
