Hi, I'm Mark, photographer and founder of Shotkit.

If you're interested in the gear behind the photo as much as capturing the photo itself, then you're in the right place!

Shotkit is all about inspiring, teaching and supporting photographers from around the world to become better at their art and in their business.


The Story behind Shotkit

camera gearWhen I first got into photography, I was eager to find out what camera gear my favourite photographers were using.

The problem was, I couldn't find any good information online about what camera gear photographers were using.

I knew that I probably wasn't the only photography enthusiast who wanted to take a peek into other photographers' camera bags.


camera gearIn 2014 I created Shotkit, to reveal the camera gear of the world's best photographers and share their work with you.

A few years later we welcome over 10,000 visits each day from all over the world and have become the go-to site to peek inside photographers' camera bags.

I'm proud of what Shotkit has become, and am happy you have come to join us here.
