My veiws on the difference between amature and professional.
professional some one who make a full time living out of it what ever it is (this doesn't make them good just that they can market their work) they do.
Amateur some one who does this who doesn't make a full time living or anymoney at all from it
As in all walks you have pros that well just shouldn't be in that profession. And then there's amateurs who produce work just as if not better as a.pro
I've done a couple of weddings for a few people I know as a favour ,but they know I'm not a pro and when they ask how much I charge I just tell them just a donation for my time and the prints albums etc are what ever they cost me. Luckily they've all been happy with my work and even been asked to do some other shots for them. They were the scariest thing I've ever had to do and wouldn't want to do it full time just so many things that could go so easliy wrong. I think the biggest problem for people looking for a wedding photographer is the cost IV seen every price from 500 pound just for the photographer and pics on a CD up to and beyond 5 k for the works. On average around 2 k which on top of proberly the most expensive day that person will ever have its a lot of money to fork out on.
