Did you have a crappy camera but the skills to make it work until you could afford a professional camera? OR Did you scrape for years to buy that SuperAwesomeSRL3000 camera before you began turning your hobby into a moneymaker? I want to start my own business doing studio/location, weddings and the whole bit. I don't have a studio or any equipment except for a Canon Powershot A590 IS which is pretty good but its no professional camera. I'm going to be limited to doing only natural light shoots until I can afford lighting equipment and a better camera. I would like to hear some of your stories of how you got started in what you do now. What was your starter camera? Equipment? Services?
