When is a "photographer" “professional photographer"?

When is a "photographer" “professional photographer"? I recently followed a discussion in Model Mayhem launched by a "freelance photographer" who needed assistance with shooting a model portfolio for an aspiring model he had met recently. The supportive and caring response to the question was thoughtful and complete to the extreme. It really was a tribute to the professionals that are part of this group that shared without reservation even though I sensed a unspoken consensus of incredulity that a "photographer" would be unfamiliar with posing and lighting techniques. In the end, I suppose anyone who has ever taken a picture is a photographer and if you can get someone to pay you then you are a pro. Likewise, I know of no pro who didn't launch their career doubtful of their readiness or worried that they would be revealed as a charlatan soon after taking their first polaroids(sorry for the reference but many of us started before the advent of digital and LCD screens). I want to make it clear at the outset that my intention is not to demean anyone who considers himself or herself a photographer. I have had many assistants who taught me and have been willing to share techniques I may have never found in any other way. That being said I would really like to know how it feels to the pros out there who see aspiring photographers present and market themselves as "photographers" not to mention "professionals" when by any reasonable measure such a claim is at best a benign stretch of their own imagination,(of course, I don't mean to include Ashton Kutcher in this set of "photographers"). I can hit some tennis balls on the tennis court and look like I know what Im doing but I wouldn't call myself a professional . So why is the word "photographer" bandied about so easily by so many with little more than a Coolpix and a website? Am I just having a bad day or is this ever a minor irritation to anyone else too

Throwback Thursday With Leticia Cline

For throw back Thursday I am sending up my last time hanging out with Leticia Cline! We had a blast in the pits of the 24 Hours of Daytona. I really enjoyed how the wives looked at her with disdain while all the guys grabbed as many looks as they could. The finished images were published in Makes and Models Magazine. Leticia and I can always find a way to have a good time shooting beautiful and relevant images for our client. I am fire and she is gasoline and together we have always created a nice,warm glow; tee hee!!!

Michele Pommier is at it again. Always the workaholic, Pommier is once again discovering and churning out models that will soon be at the top of the game. Working with her more than 25 years one can attest to Michele’s resolve in shaking things up in the modeling field. Teaming up with many of the industries top names such as Matt Dunn Photography, she is pushing ahead of many who came after she built the empire and modeling business in south Florida more than 2 decades ago.
Pommier has always had the knack of finding unique, fabulous, and iconic faces. When she pairs that with the unique lenswork of noted fashion and celebrity photographer, Matt Dunn, something special happens. “The team is working like a well oiled machine”, Dunn remarked.” Having met Michele more than 25 years ago, she gave me my shot in the business by allowing me to photograph many of her top models, many of which went on to superstardom”. Dunn added, “What a gift that was when Michele gave me birth in such a exclusive business”. Located at 309 23rd street, suite 320, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, the magic continues. Along with Matt Dunn, Pommier is also partnering with Katia Sherman, president of Major Models. Sherman was her second in charge back in the greatest modeling boom in the late ‘80s and ‘90s. Together, they built Michele Pommier Models from a small agency in Coral Gables into a worldwide powerhouse agency whose billings were among the largest in the industry.
