So, everyone using a FF is a paid photographer?


I can name at least two shooters, possibly four regulars in this NG who use
FF cameras, and who are not professional photographers.

pro·fes·sion·al/prəˈfeSH(ə)n(ə)l/
adjective

relating to or connected with a profession.
(of a person) engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid
occupation rather than as a pastime.


The word amateur comes from, is a derivative of the latin amare, that
is an a is a person that does something because s/he enjoys it... HTH.

"1775-85; French, Middle French Latin amātor lover, equivalent to
amā- (stem of amāre to love) + -tor -tor, replaced by French -teur (
Latin -tōr-, oblique stem of -tor); see -eur"

With tennis, the distinction is easier.
An amateur jumps over the net.
A pro's manager jumps over the gross.
