So, how many of you are just starting out with photography and have NO clue which lenses you want to purchase with your limited photography budget? Even worse, are you torn between Nikon or Canon DSLR’s and are not sure which one you want? Rather than suffer from buyer’s remorse, or spend a lot of money on lenses you’re not certain that you’ll use all that much, why not just rent what you want to try, and be sure before you buy? :)
BorrowLenses is the premiere lens rental service in the photography industry! I’ve used them a few times over the past year when I’ve needed to rent additional lenses/cameras for the weddings I’ve shot, and will use them again and again. It’s always such a smooth, easy going process to work with BorrowLenses. I find their lens and camera selection to be out of this world! Canon, Nikon, Sony… Wide angle, telephoto, tilt-shift, macro, fisheye, flashes, tripods.. you can even rent underwater gear, a Macbook Pro…. pretty much anything you can think of needing for your budding photography business or hobby – they have it all!
The BorrowLenses online system is extremely easy to use when making your selections, and if you live near any of their San Francisco, California locations, you can choose to pick up your gear rather than have it FedExed. Their customer service has also been lovely to deal with as well. I really love how flexible they are – if necessary, they’re willing to work with you on custom rental periods and they make it so easy to schedule your rentals in advance. They’re great about keeping all the gear super clean following each rental, and I love that they are a photographer-owned company.

Disclosure: I paid for my regular rentals, but BorrowLenses was kind enough to toss in a tilt shift lens with my most recent rental as a thank-you for hosting this giveaway on my blog. I am a BorrowLenses affiliate. I’m not compensated in any other way. All opinions stated in this review are my own.
