I won't go into great detail; there are issues involved. I very much suspect the desire to have me spend a ton of money on photo gear that I would not otherwise have purchased revolved around  tax deductions.

Had I not started this business then I would most likely have stuck with one DSLR, a flash and two or three lenses. I would not have bought two DSLRs, several flashes, studio setup and several lenses. You see where this is going?

Right now I'm looking at getting the best price for the stuff I don't actually use. Thus far it appears that the bodies are pretty well unsalable. The lenses and flashes have dropped by 25 - 50 percent and the studio equipment might get no takers and end up in the dumpster.
