In a previous post, I mentioned to you guys that I put all of my funds from photography right back into gear the first year. I though it might be fun to let you know act type of things I use to create my images! Here is a list of my camera gear, programs, and courses that have really helped me to get to where I am at.
Tamron 35-150 mm 2.8-4 lens
Nikon 50 mm 1.8 lens
Nikon 85mm 1.8 lens
2020 Macbook Pro
Lacie 2T External hard drive
Samsung T7 SSD 500 GB hard drive
EN-EL 15 battery charger set
SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB memory cards
Photo Mechanic 6 (to quickly cull through photos)
Lightroom (editing software)
I actually don’t use any photoshop! All of my stuff is done in Lightroom.
Pass Plus (to deliver photos)
agree.com (contracts and invoices)
Planoly (to plan out instagram posts)
Amy and Jordan’s Shooting and Editing Course
Amy and Jordan’s Posing Course

Katelyn James Lighting and Location Course
Breanne Weston’s Finding Joy in Chaos Course
Kylee Ann’s Becoming a Brand Photographer
There ya have it! The only thing listed above that I have had bad luck with is my hard drives. I have had three go out on me! I have learned the hard way that I need to have everything triple backed up. But it’s all good! Ya live and ya learn. I really love shooting Nikon and have gotten used to the color profiling. I don’t have intentions on switching to mirrorless any time soon, although it seems like the cool things to do now days! My Tamron lens almost never leaves my camera body and is my go-to lens. Everything else is awesome too, I have been lucky enough to be able to get some pretty good gear early on. Let me know if you guys have any questions, I would love to help you get started!
