We really shouldn't get bogged down in semantics. Someone who rides a bike is a cyclist, someone who sits in a bus is a passenger and someone who buys something in a shop is a customer. Why do we feel the need to get all anal and put photographers in a special class?
Until it comes to a situation where somebody wants to employ somebody for a job..... and then some kind of professional status is usually looked for - or at least some knowledge of the standard of work that can be expected.
