What might upset any pro, though, is for those who don't rely entirely on photography to be paid - but avoid paying tax.
I think Dan's use of the word semi-pro nails julip's situation. An amateur is assumed not to be financially renumerated for their services.
It's up to any individual to declare untaxed income, however they earn a living. This could just as easily be a pro photographer not declaring a cash transaction.
