Hobbyist all the way for me.  But then again I'm a beginner, I hope one day to be working and making $$ from my camera!

I refuse to go full time, I want to keep enjoying getting out and having me time with my camera.  I know to many photographers that went full time and now it's work for them.  They lost a part of their spark and enjoyment from photography.

Both, but would like to get into more of the hobby side.  Or back to being just hobby.
