Photography can be a profitable career and it can also be a hugely rewarding hobby, but as most every photographer will know, it can also be very expensive.

However, the good news is that as photographers upgrade to the latest models, the older models can be picked up quite cheaply. Professional photographers will upgrade their equipment quite regularly, so if you know someone who does this for a living and if they have recently upgraded their equipment, it’s worth enquiring what they plan to do with their old camera.

Ebay

If you don’t like the idea of buying second-hand equipment, there are numerous sellers on Ebay that sell discounted photographic equipment that while not brand named, do almost the same job as their more costly branded alternatives. As with all your purchases, it is advised that you shop around.

Specialist photographic suppliers

You can find many specialist suppliers on the Internet that sell cameras and photographic supplies that are much cheaper than a High Street store. Sites such as Firstcall-photographic.co.uk, Mpbphotographic.co.uk or Calumetphoto.co.uk specialise in discounted cameras and accessories.
