MADcoCAE.
To me a spotter is a person who notes down the registrations on the aircraft spotted in the airport. I think your picture shows a spotter. The guy on the picture from AirbusfanYYZ shows a photographer!

Out of the many photographers on this picture it looks like 1 or 2 spotters are among them.

Skymaster,

Not necessarily. Some spotters also take pictures and write registration numbers.

I agree with Lindy. I take photos, but I for sure consider myself a spotter...  Wow!

So here's another spotter in action:
