Why would they? They ask other photographers. Baceuse self-shots are not as good as normal photos.

Not usually.....
A professional photographer denotes that they shoot photos for money.
No money in photos of themselves.

I see by a comment in another answer that you are asking this because your girlfriend only takes photos of herself. Anyone who takes a photo is technically a photographer. Professional means you make money by selling your services and product. You cannot make money taking photos of yourself.

Yes they do! Depending on if they think their photogenic ! My BFF is a photographer and I'm into it as well, we both love taking pictures of ourselves! not every photographer is JUST in it for the money, they simply love doing what they do..

The professional photographers that I know personally, would not take photos of themselves. That said, they would have no problem posing for pictures with someone else taking them.

That's so funny! I was just talking to someone about this recently!! I'm a photographer and I'm NEVER in the picture! Doesn't even occur to me. Just had a great idea! Have you seem those "painters" who do those cute "self portraits?" You know there is a painting of them painting their portrait of themselves looking on the mirror ? I should do that with a camera.
