There Are No Professional Doctors

Imagine you’re at a party, and you ask the person next to you what they do, and they reply:

“I’m a professional doctor.”


Here’s the thing...

No doctor (or lawyer or accountant or architect or civil engineer or a dozen others) would ever qualify their profession as “professional” because it is inherently obvious that they’re a professional.

So why do photographers (and models and musicians and actors and writers and others) do it?
