As a photo retailer I sold to both amateurs and pros. The pros ran up huge bills for operating their photography businesses in a number of areas, and had major responsibilities toward the IRS, accounting for those expenses. Their primary incomes were clearly from their photography. They didn't have time for other jobs, and probably wouldn't have been posting on gear forums. They were too busy making a living with photography on a daily basis.
