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 our photography gear, here is a list of everything we use to run a successful portrait photography business. We’ve also listed the business tools used for the The Lens Lounge community and photography courses on how to take quality photographs.

We couldn’t do it without these tools!

It takes a lot of equipment to run a photography business and an online photography course business.  Here’s a list of the main elements that we use for both businesses.

Just so you know, some of these links are affiliate links.  This means that if you click on the link and purchase any products, I’ll receive a small commission.  This helps us to run the blog and continue creating courses that ensure more photography enthusiasts get incredible photographs to hand down through the generations.
