Hello! I was just wondering in the view of other people what level of a photographer would you put me at? (Amateur, Intermediate, Pro). I threw together a little random portfolio of some of the photos I have done.

I would think intermediate, better than a beginner, but not proficient.

Pro would not apply unless you are getting paid. But being professional does not imply any particular level of competency.

“Amateur” can mean low quality, but that word more literally means a lover of an art, someone who practices an art for the joy of it, and not for pay. Amateurs can be very competent.
