Ed Rooney Posted May 15, 2017 Share Posted May 15, 2017 I'm an amateur when it comes to photography here because I don't do enough or make enough money to be regarded as anything else. However, I get the rules and have 3 stars and treat the agency with respect. Ergo, in my case, photography remains more of a fun pastime as opposed to what I do for a job otherwise. Mister G, this is not a critique of your photography, but you are not an amateur in either sense of that term. To be amateur either means you are unpaid or inept. I'm sure you've made a few sales on Alamy, and you're certainly not inept. I'm a retired professional photographer. Since I still shoot stock and make some money, but not a living from it, I should be called semiprofessional or semipro. This label probably fits you too, as well as most of the contributors with Alamy. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
