It all started when I bought my wife a cheap DSLR to take photos of the kids. We'd just welcomed our first daughter into the world and we both gave it a go.
Surprisingly, I found out that I really enjoy the entire photography process. From planning to post production. It's been a crazy right as I've slowly built up my equipment as needed such as lighting and a couple of lenses but a new camera is just out of reach.
I've been using a Nikon D5200 for just over a year now and it's treated me very well. I've gotten commissions and been published online once or twice. Ive found I have a good eye for lifestyle and fashion photography and was just starting to get more work when my equipment died.

I'd just spent my savings I earned from the photos on setting up a legal business and putting all the legal requirements in place so the broken equipment came at the worse possible time.
That is why I'm appealing to the community for any help.
I've done the hard graft and learnt the basics with what I have, developed my style and tried and failed numerous times. Unfortunately, my trusty camera has now stopped working and I am now unable to carry on without it.
I'm reaching out to the community to help me purchase a new camera body that can help me carry on and expand on my business that was just starting to pick up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would be forever grateful.
