These are my favorite tools I use for all my photography work and to run my photography business. I use these on a daily basis, from buying gear to learning online, to travel and running my websites. Feel fee to contact me if you have any questions.

This is where I rent my gear from
Great resources for learning from the PROS
I call it photographers College
MUST HAVE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES
If you are going to invest in photography courses, these two are a must in your tool kit. Annie Leibovitz and Steve McCurry are in my opinion the best photographers of our time. It is great that we can all sit in a classroom with such masters.
Editing software I use
start your photography website
I am very particular with my hosting. However I use all of these sites and hosts. Smumug is great because they are a one stop shop. It is self hosted and you can sell your photos there. They will print and ship and you do not have to do anything once you set it up and upload your images. I use Smugmug for my print shop. WordPress is great, it is the site you are on right now. It is easy to set up and hosting is very inexpensive. WordPress is perfect if you want to start a blog. Squarespace is great, they have clean templates to create a stunning photography website. I use it to run Walks of Miami. If you are starting out I suggest you go with Smugmug. It is the easiest most headache free to set up.
Email Marketing tools
For any photographer, prints are extremely important. These are great places to get great looking prints for your your self or for your clients. They have great prices and great customer service. I stick like to stick to Canvas Champ. They have great pricing and great customer service.
Travel Sites I Use
CheapOair comes in second for me. If Expedia doest not have what I am looking for, CheapOair does.
Book Vip is a great site with loads of deals. I mean deals. People ask me all the time how I travel so much and this is it. Just check out the insane packages they have.
