Getting photography equipment is a big investment. And whether you’re just shooting for fun or you’re taking on work or paying customers, you need to have the right tools to capture the images you want – but buying those tools doesn’t have to break the bank!

Instead of purchasing everything brand new, you can save serious cash and get kit every bit as good by buying used kit. It doesn’t matter if you just need a new lens or you want to completely switch camera system – your budget will go much further by shopping second hand, and you have a significantly larger selection of kit to choose from.
