Just curious as to the average age of photographers, members, and registered users on this site.

And with that in mind, how many users are professional photographers?

There are many kinds of interesting user statistics that may or may not be a fun idea to show graphically on a separate section on this site.

So.. how old is everyone?

I'm 24.. mid-amateur level.

I'm 16 18 and amateur.

Average so far = 20 no idea :P

I'm 37 so I guess that pushes it back up a bit :)
I am paid to take photos..... professional? That's debatable ;)

I'm 32. I think at this point I've transcended novice and moved into bona fide amateur. Avg. from here = 29.7 with 9 people reporting. (297 yrs / 10 people) for those of you keeping score at home.

I'll add myself to the 37 club, and the amateur club too. Dsidwell is 40.

22 - professional

(that is professional because I make my living off photography, not because I am better than you guys - rather on the contrary, I would say)

Well, so far I can claim to be #1 in something. lol___Looking at 49 years old and must be considered an amateur if I go by my scoring.

The answer of this question is best answered by Drew or Langdon, by the way, and would look a little something like this:

<?PHP
dbconnect();

function validate_age($age)
{
if ($age > 0 OR $age < 110) { $flag = 0; }
else { $flag = 1; }

return $flag;
}


$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM dpc_users WHERE EXISTS age");

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
if (validate_age($row[age]))
{
$count++;
$total = $total + $row[age];
}
}

$avg = round($total / $count);

echo ("The average DPC user is $avg years old");

?>

... That would save this thread from running for all eternity as well...

(edit: Sorry about the BFugly formatting of my sourcecode, and definitely sorry for the lack of code optimization - I whacked this out in 2 minutes without testing it.)

Pushing up the average again: Age 53 and semi-pro (according to my tax return, anyway!)

I am probably the oldest person on here. I am not going to tell you how old I am
but I will say I have been retired for 9 years. I am not going to say how old I was
when I retired but will say I was already old. I am definitely an amateur photographer.
