Here are the links to my Amazon Affiliate site to see my favorite photography equipment.
Canon 60D with 18-135 mm stock lens
Tamron 28-75 mm 2.8 lens (this stays on my camera 90% of the time)
Canon Speedlite External Flash (I try to shoot with no flash but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. This is much better than a hard flash.)
Targus Tripod (make sure to get one that flips 90 degrees to take both portrait and landscape shots)
