We all know that photography is a pricey endeavor. It doesn’t matter whether you’re taking photos for your own pleasure, or you’re shooting a brief for a client – if you want the right tools for the job, it’s going to mean spending a chunk of change.  

It doesn’t have to break the bank, though! By looking at used gear rather than buying everything new, you can add fantastic kit to your bag without making your credit card sweat. It doesn’t matter if you only need a lens or if you’re getting a whole camera setup – there are many more options available, and at a much better price, if you look at used equipment.
