Regardless of whether you're selling services to clients or shooting things just for yourself, your photography gear is pricey – especially when it comes to specialist kit for specialist genres. However, it doesn't have to be as pricey as you think!

Rather than purchasing your equipment new, you can upgrade your kit – or even replace it entirely – and save serious cash by shopping used. From simply buying a new lens to switching systems entirely, not only will your cash go further if you buy used but you'll also have a whole lot more gear to choose from.
