virtual / IRL platform that provides me with so much inspiration and countless resources.
A great one stop shop for a ton of incredible photo gear. They even sell presets + online courses. I usually purchase film from here and they ship super fast.
Awesome resource where creators can share + sell their virtual assets; for photographers there’s a huge library of presets, graphics, photoshop actions etc. that come in handy for editing photos or whatever else you may need them for in your practice
Their book Freelance and Business and Stuff is a must have for anyone looking to take their creative ventures full time or to the next level. It’s written by people in the industry and is a modern approach to all of the steps that need to be taken to run a successful creative business.
a trusty spot for cameras, film, darkroom supplies, and even gear + studio rentals. You can shop online which i love for the convenience but when i’m in NY and need film developed + processed in a pinch, i’ll drop it off at photodom and they do a great job. They have an incredible selection of used film cameras and analog video cameras for those looking to dabble in that realm!
I buy used lenses here and even trade some of my old equipment when I'm trying to clear up some closet space. They have an expansive selection of used camera gear that is quality checked and priced super well.
I have a carry-on Pelican case that fits all of my camera gear and makes it on the plane with me throughout all of my air travel. I feel so confident in my gear being protected and secured in it. I also use a small Pelican’s hardshell case (from a collab they did with Necessaire) to store all of my film pre and post shoot.
super trusty camera straps + storage accessories that allow you to focus on capturing moments rather than worry about how your camera is getting from one location to the next. Their camera straps are designed to be easy to remove and put back on, and i always feel confident knowing the straps can support my various shooting positions.
I live in Detroit and have accumulated some staple pieces from Shinola in my time here. I don’t usually care for leather products, but all of my leather goods are from Shinola and I am in love with them point blank. I have a tote, wallet, laptop bag and sunglasses case and all of these things are able to withstand any wear and tear I subject them to in my travels.
some of the dreamiest undies I’ve ever encountered! Another female founded, Detroit based brand. The founder, Rachel, puts in so much care + research to the designs and fits she comes up with. Super comfy and as whimsically sexy as underwear can come.
