I think you missed the point of Rob's post. He wasn't talking about being a professional, he was talking about photography being so important to you, regardless of talent, that you HAVE to make images. It becomes a compulsion and, in many aspects, one of the more important aspects of your life.
Thanks for clarifying that, since english is not my native language some times I get caught on the words and sentences and don't always see the full picture. Now I understand, and guess I need to fix my signature, when I say that I want photography to be my life I mean that I would love for it to be my job, my way of living, that much I enjoy it.
I work all day with computers and fixing this, and fixing that, with 12 hour journeys that sometimes drain me completely, I know is not enough of an excuse, but I still grab my camera whenever I can, trying to learn more day after day and taking all the variety of pictures I can. But oh man, I would love to live of my photography.
Sadly I'm also in some kind of minor depression because of the situation here in my country (Mexico) specially in my city and state, robbery is increasing like maniac, gun shots almost everywhere, can't be outside too early or too late, can't take your camera outdoors because of what may happen, soldiers everywhere, living with a constant fear of getting caught in crossfire.
But still, I try to take the best out of being indoors, grab my speedlight, a couple of my clamp lights and take portraits, inanimate objects or whatever I can, photography also has become a way of being more in peace.
Sorry to drop all my problems on you, is just that sometimes it comes out without even noticing.
