Here's a list of resources, tools I use, and marketing 

If you are looking for help as a new photographer then have I created a list of resources you need that will provide you ways to marketing, helpful tips and tutorials, articles, and sharing or submitting your work with other professional photographers. For marketing social media I have compiled a list that I'm updating when new apps or online tools I discover. As for my crafting business and the fact that I love to always try new craft projects is included.

Top tools used for business


Shutterfly For anyone that wants to have photo prints among other gifts and photo projects.

Canva Great to find graphics for all your different needs from social media to business proposals with a huge amount of permade templates to choose from.

Here’s what’s different:
- They no longer differentiating between free and premium features in the product. The crown icons are gone.
- New users are free to try all of our features, but they need to start a free trial in order to save their designs to Hub, create custom effects, and share and export their work.
And what’s staying the same:
- Premium and Supremium members have access to all the great features they’ve always had
- Our mobile product is staying the same—it’s free to download and use all features except Hub and Touch Up
