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.
