    Hey all,

    I have a odd question for ya all and I am looking for some serious idea's. I have been shooting all my pics of late with a Fuji P&S and I have an opportunity to do some work with a pro in my area. Problem is that I need to get a DSLR to do this and I just don't have the cash until about March or April.

    I am looking for some creative financing idea's as I have bad credit from my divorce a couple years ago and can't get a credit card or regular loan. What would you consider if you were in this spot? O am thinking about trying to A)buy a used body real cheap and hope it works or B)try and get a private investor to loan me the cash to get started.

    Not sure what to do but I don't want to miss an opportunity just because I don't have any cash right now......

    Any thought's?

    This might sound stupid but have you tried doing something like eBay? When I first got an eBay account I must have made a good $400 just selling random stuff I didn't need anymore.

    If you're working with a pro I assume they've seen your work and they're happy for you to be shooting along side them. So why not ask if they can lend you one?

    Try a small 500 dollar signature loan from your bank. They're designed to help build your credit.
