    Now I'm a "pro" photographer! Yay me!

    What is this you ask? A Pro? Yes sir (or ma'am)!

    Enough discussion going on right now all over about pro versus amateur and now I give my opinion officially. It isn't your skill, or if you make money. No.

    Its having a Manfrotto #190 Bogen #3025 as a new tripod. So I just went "pro"....

    I'll take shoot offers by appointment...

    Congratulations on the new gear. I'd kill to ditch my $25 camcorder tripod from 1999. I haven't bought any NEW gear since I January... well, besides replacing a lost lens cap.

    New from the factory, new to you, it's all exciting.

    I guess I should clarify. I haven't bought any gear, new or new-to-me, since January. And that's not by choice. :lol:

    Technically someone who makes a living from photography is a professional.

    My understanding of becoming a pro, is to join a photography forum. This way you can tell people you are known throughout the world... its the only reason I joined.
