Come on the question is easy:
He asked fulltime
so if you do anything else for earning money besides your "art" you only qualify for the last option non-art.
It's just a poll don't get it personal, i personally find it quite interesting how many "art" fulltimer we have.

Engineer. 

I don't make a living out of photography, so I don't consider myself a pro.

Regards,
Adelaide

I've never been sure what I was.

 :)

I'm a graphic designer who also does photography for the company I work for. And then I do photography for myself, of which I make money at. No, I don't do it full time, but I would still say I am a professional as I also go by the definition: professional = gets paid to do it. amateur = does it for fun and doesn't take any money.

as for me,  I don't take it personal.    I thought my comment made it perfectly clear.   I couldn't care less.   I take pictures because I love to do it.  I enjoy it,  I spend many hours playing with my work in post production....      and there are those that will buy my product. 

I really don't care if  I am considered a professional or not.  What I am labeled has nothing to do and does not affect how much money I am making doing something I love.  I have no doubt that I make as much or more than many who do this fulltime as their first and only job and who call themselves  "professional photographers"

It  ain't no biggie to me.  Please don't take it that,   I take it.. personal.  I don't.

Well said, Tom!  I'll be writing off a trip to Australia this year because I have my little photography business on the side.  I couldn't care less about the title of professional either!  At my "day" job this year they gave me a new title of "senior programmer."  Big deal.  All I care about is how much they add to my paycheck.  They can call me anything they like as long as my paycheck is never late! :D

graphic artist / designer sort of the same thing.  My last full time job was "graphic artist" but I always referred to myself as a "graphic designer".  Now, on the other hand, "illustrators" could be considered sort of different for your average run of the mill graphic designers.  I'd consider myself less of an illustrator, more of a designer.  If I had a wacom tablet, and more time on my hands....then maybe I could say different :)

You did' t put an option for unemployed. :-).

I left my old job a couple of months ago, and I've been on 'holiday', just started looking last week...

(It's a tough life, but someone's gotta do it...
