When we were getting started, there were so many decisions to make. What gear do we need? What online tools are the best? What business books should we be reading? There were so many choices, it felt paralyzing. We wasted tons of time researching when we could’ve been (and should've been) practicing our photography or building our business. We just wished someone we trusted with industry experience who’d already done the research and tested the tools had a list of everything they used –– so we could use them, too. That’s what we’ve done here! We hope this makes your life easier!
Quick note, we’re affiliates for some of the resources on this page, which means we get a small commission whenever a purchase is made using one of the links or codes here, or anywhere else on our site. It doesn’t cost you extra. In fact, in many cases, it costs you less, because we’ve been able to snag a special deal or discount on your behalf that will actually save you money –– so it’s a win-win! Plus, you can rest assured knowing that we only endorse products and services that we use and work for us. We hope having all these carefully curated tools in one place is a blessing to you.
