    6 months, and I'm definately not pro. I consider it to be a "severe hobby" :)

    I've been a photographer for about 3 years, and I consider myself an artist.

    i have had a passion for the art of photography many years and have been practicing most of my life. i cannot call myself a photographer as the term 'photographer' implies professional.

    I picked it up around December of last year. I own a D70, so that makes me a pro, right? :lol:

    I've been into taking pictures for about 3 years. But not really like I am now. Got my Canon Elan 7ne last christmas so about 7 months in my eyes. Though some might count the digital point and shoot days. I'm still a rookie though.

    I have been seriously interested for about 5 years now. I consider myself a student of photography, not a photographer. :) I would commit myself 24/7 if I could, but I can't. Makes for a long learning curve!

    I'm an advanced amateur at this point. Been doing it for a bit more than a year.
