Re: Discussion: What makes a photographer?

... These are not reasons why you should not turn pro, but they are cautions. If you turn pro it is a paradigm shift. On the other hand, even as a volunteer, every time I go out I may risk some liability or other, and no, I don't have a thin dime in insurance, so there y'go. :| I'm proud to say you...
