I'm looking for other terms that describe people with extensive knowledge in a certain discipline that they use while working in that discipline.
Is there a word describing musicians who are especially informed music geeks? Game designers with an extensive knowledge of the history of games? Bricklayers that also run a Bricklaying Museum?
