As a photographer, I am often asked about cameras, lenses, and memory cards. These are the brands and models that I would strongly recommend to anyone looking to get into photography. I frequently use Amazon, and recomend that you join Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime Free Trial 


Further, if your looking for tutorials, I recommend Kelby One and any of the numerous books written by Scott Kelby. If you reside in Central California, I would also recommend that you take one of the many classes offered by Bakersfield College. The instructor, Kristoper Stallworth is one of the best in the state.
