The list below is a list of items that would need to be replaced and brought on a month to month basis to essentially run your freelance photography business in a successful way.

These items would be:

  • Inks
  • Bulbs
  • Extension Cables
  • Hot Shoe Adapter
  • Film both Black and White, Colour
  • Paper
  • Chemicals
  • Batteries
  • SD Cards
  • Card Readers
  • Leads
  • USB hard drives
  • Lens Cleaners/Cloths
  • Bag
  • Charger

It is unlikely that everything in the above list would need replacing every single month on a regular basis, however I would need to set aside  approximately £200 per month to cover the running costs of these consumables.
