Photography Gift Ideas

Here a few of my personal favourites for perfect photography gifts for photographers…

1.  New DSLR

Top of the Christmas Wishlist is a brand new full frame camera.  Ouch! it is expensive, but your photographer will not complain about upgrading or owning a second camera.

2. Photography Course Gift Certificate

Second in the Gift Wishlist is a photography course with Lou Smith. This ensures that your photographer knows how to use all that shiney new equipment and learn about creative photography. Photography Gift Certificates are from £90.

3.  New Lens

Third in the Christmas Wishlist is a prime lens.  Prime lenses are very fast, have that all important shallow aperture for creative photography and are razor sharp.

4.  Camera Bag

Fourth in the Photographer’s Christmas Wishlist is a brand new camera bag to carry all that expensive gear.  Crumpler is stylish. Lowepro slingshot is fast and convenient.  Handy waterproof weatherfront which keeps the bag and camera gear dry. I use Lowpro 202 AW when shooting in towns.

5.  Gorilla Pod

Fifth in the Christmas Wishlist for photographers is the handy Gorilla Pod. It fits neatly into the camera bag and is useful for creative slow exposure shots.
