What exactly is a "semi-pro"? I hear that term used all the time and even a class of camera is supposed to be intended for them but never figured out what it meant.
Does it mean their income is partially but not wholly derived from works for hire in photography? Their "pro" but fail to get a business license or pay taxes on their income from photography, or possibly a self described notion of being more skilled than an amateur and less skilled than a person who derives all their income from photographic services?
What version of the term is your uncle?
Amateur has lost its historic definition, of being the status of those whose passion, skilled and devoted energies into a craft was at a the loftiest levels. Somehow in recent years the term has sunk to mean low skilled, novice tinkerer. In the past, most great advances and discoveries in science, mathematics, works of art, philosophers etc were amateurs.
