Photography Resources and Downloads

This page is a list of resources that can help you in your photography journey. Education is a big part of photography but sometimes you need other things too, but don’t know where to begin. The first section is resources that I have created, please download and feel free to share, all I ask is that you acknowledge me.

The second section is products or services that I have personally used, and have tested and can recommend.

If there is something you would like to see or have a recommendation for a resource please contact me.
