Marissa Mayer: "no such thing really as professional photographers"

This is the exact quote she gave at the Yahoo press event in NYC yesterday.

" ... was a decision that we would not have the Flickr Pro piece anymore, and that all - there's no such thing as Flickr Pro, because today, with cameras as pervasive as they are, there is no such thing really as professional photographers, when there's everything is professional photographers. Certainly there is varying levels of skills, but we didn't want to have a Flickr Pro anymore, we wanted everyone to have professional quality photos, space, and sharing."

The "when there's everything is professional photographers" part may seem confusing, but it's exactly how she said it. She speaks quite fast and probably had two thoughts at once. You can watch the footage yourself from 46:12 at the following link.
