You don’t need fancy camera gear to take a good photo… you just need to know how to use what you have

But to give you an idea of some of my photography gear, here’s a list of everything I use to run a successful portrait photography business. I’ve also listed the business tools used for the The Lens Lounge community and photography courses on how to take quality photographs.

I couldn’t do it without these tools!

It takes a lot of tech and equipment to run a photography business, a photography blog and an online photography course business.  Here’s a list of the main elements that I use for business.
