Yup, you just read that right. According to a report from GigaOM, Marissa Mayer does not believe that there is such a thing as a professional photographer anymore. However, she acknowledges different skill levels. We’re not sure if she’s aware that there are people who make their living off of selling their creative vision to customers. Additionally, we’re not sure if she is aware of the fact that there is insurance involved, fees, maintenance, upgrades, marketing, etc involved in the whole business of being a photographer.

And guess whose angry? Not only us, but Zack Arias.

This announcement from the CEO was stated when the new 1TB of awesomeness came to Flickr users.
