Canon Lens Reviews and Detailed Specification Comparisons

I have long been a fan of the website as a fantastic source for in useful review of Canon cameras, lenses, and accessories. The reviews presented are the perfect length to provide an great overview of the equipment, without requiring hours of reading to get the idea.


Sean Phillips | Riverwood PhotographyIn 2012 over 100 million cameras were manufactured by the major camera companies and every single one of those cameras represents possible competition to the professional photographer. This could be direct competition through someone else selling their photography services, or indirectly as camera owners tend to take more and more pictures of their own rather than hiring a professional.

I pose the question asking if photography is still a viable business with so many cameras available in the marketplace, average photography salaries rapidly declining, and the surge in the number of people calling themselves professional photographers. My conclusion is that it is definitely possible to create a great photography business, but it takes a lot of hard work, some business savvy, and constant business innovation.

That's what this site is about.
