I think it is quite clear cut. Maybe that comes from my experience of building websites.
To me, Professional means you make your living from it. Semi-pro, you make some money but don't do it as a 'day job'. Amateur is doing it for fun, but not to make money.
Freelance has different meanings to me. I would say there's a difference between a freelance photographer and a professional photographer. Both are classed a professional, but a freelancer would work for themselves and have to try to bid for photography work, where as a non-freelancer would work for a company.
