In light of the new iStock announcement, and the article our friends at Lucky Oliver have provided, I ran across this article which should spark a little bit of activity on the forum.  I'm not sure the gloves are off at this point, but the article certainly stings a little bit...

I think that the author is confusing a few issues:

1. It is normal convention to call someone a professional once they start making money.

2. There are various levels of professionals.  You shouldn't compare a rookie to Ansel Adams.

3. There are also artists vs. professionals.  A person could just be an artist (that doesn't make money), a professional (that doesn't really create any "art"), or both (a person that creates art and makes money from it).

So while I don't necessarily agree with all of Bryan's predictions, I don't have any problems with his statement about professionals vs. amateurs.
