Capitol Equipment Costs, are costs that are needed to be spent in order to buy the appropriate equipment to achieve your work and run your business successfully. In groups we brainstormed the initial costs that we would encounter when first setting up our own freelance photography business.

The equipment list:

  • Camera – £4000
  • Mac – £1800
  • Software – £800
  • Lens – £2000
  • Cases – £100
  • Infinity table – £200
  • Van (transport) – £5000-8000
  • Tripod & Accessories – £40-100
  • Reflectors – £15-80
  • Backdrops – £40+
  • Light Meter – £100
  • Location Pack – £1000
  • Inkjet Printer – £200 (may not need)
  • External Hard drive – £150

After this list of costings we worked out that we would need roughly a loan of 18-20k to set up a freelance photography business with a decent standard of equipment.

The Inkjet Printer may not be necessary as an initial piece of set up equipment, as printing costs you could seek other companies to print your photographs for you, instead of investing in your own equipment encountering more cost.
