Guess I should mention it since the Mrs did. I’m really a professional photographer now because on Wednesday I had to shoots where I got paid. Don’t know if that is the only criteria, but it is significant. Of course I got paid back in December to shoot an anniversary party.
I shot a private client in the morning and a law firm in the afternoon. And I learned photography is a physical activity as well as a mental one. Lugging equipment around is mandatory. Crawling around things to get the right angle is important too.
