Thanks for reading over this list of recommended gear items for your photography business! The first thing I want to let you know is…. The most important thing you need– is between your ears.  VISION is 10000X more important than the price of your camera.  Yes- the fancier the gear- the fancier you may feel, but… if you have an empty brain– your shots will be… meh.  The items I recommend below are merely suggestions. If you can borrow a camera from a friend– SCORE!  I hope you find this list helpful 🙂
