【Help】I'm designer but newbie in photography, Need Help for buying a Camera.

Hi guys,

Recently I’m ready to buy a camera before I always use iPhone to taken photos, that’s okay but I want to start a series career you know, go art direction, street shoot, fashion series etc.

I’m a designer, basically, I’m a newbie in the photography field. So I’m indeed a bit confusing about camera choose.

I really need your help and tips.

However, I use the camera mainly for below directions:

* art direction

* street shoot (yeah I love street photography), travel,lifestyle etc.

* fashion shoot, I’m also a fashion style blogger, fashion brands model and also my personal fashion brand model. So I need camera for lookbook something like this.

* taken photo shoot for my work so I can scan to the computer. I draw a lot, make collages, also make some craft object. But the iPhone shoot not very clearly and professionally.

* I’m super love black and white photography. During past time I have taken lots of bw photos via my iPhone. Color photos also my type just more passion for bw tho.

So I have some questions:

1. based on my above directions, do you have any camera recommend?

2. What’s the most and core points when choosing a camera I should consider?

3. my budget is below $1800, $2000 is my upper limit. So is there any good fit camera?

4. Ideally, I’ll take the camera anywhere while I go out or travel, so I know lighter more better. BUT based on my above directions, do you think should I buy an SLR camera or Mirrorless camera?Any camera recommend?

5. I attached some of my fav photography, please forgive my silly question, but is this possible to see which camera they used? I love these style and color tone too much. Here the reference link : https://www.pinterest.com/nikistudio/for-camera-reference/

Well I guess for now that’s it.

Really really appreciate you guys help. Big thanks in advance.

Let me know if you have any question or anywhere not clearly, and sorry for my English
