When you set up a tripod and you set a timer on the camera and it takes a picture you are the photographer of that picture.

What if you compose and direct the picture and have someone click it, who is the photographer?

Very simple, then you are the director and not the cameraman ;)

In that situation, would it still count as a self portrait if someone else presses the shutter button?

Ooo, the fun of splitting hairs, Alex, eh?
But I guess you are right.
"Self-directed portrait" ... erm: "Self-directed self-portrait" rather... Or? :scratch:
