In this video I show you how I would build a DSLR kit for $300 and build your way up by hustling. I also make some comparisons to Sony Mirrorless as they're more expensive to get started with. I recommend you start with a basic camera like the Canon T2i. You'll want to buy that body used via eBay or Amazon. Add on a 50mm lens, like the Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 to do portraits. From there, add on some lights, a Sigma 17-50 and additional body. Try to secure smaller event gigs to raise funds. Then use those funds to upgrade to full-frame.
