Stock photography tutorial – what gear do you need?

So you want to get into stock photography but what photography gear do you need? The good news is that, in my opinion, you can start small and still be successful without spending thousands. In this video I go over the gear that I use, how much it cost and thoughts about what sort of lenses you might want to have a look at. The main message is, don’t feel you need to splash on super expensive gear if you don’t feel comfortable with it – there’s a lot of value in starting with beginner / middle range tech. I am not receiving any money for the products presented in this video.

My gear:
Sony Alpha 68
Tamron 70-300mm telephoto lens
Sony 35mn DT 1.8 prime lens

For filming:
Canon EOSM10 with kit lens 15-45mm.
