Welcome!

Hi there, I'm Mark, photographer and founder of Shotkit. I created this site so likeminded photography enthusiasts can show off their work, talk about their camera gear, and snoop inside the camera bags of other photographers! You'll also find impartial gear reviews, photographer interviews and much more photography related content in the Shotkit blog.
Shotkit is updated several times a week, so keep up to date and join the community by signing up for the free newsletter and following us on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Tumblr and Instagram!
