Just 10 days until Christmas – wow! If you haven’t get found that perfect gift for your special someone we have some excellent suggestions, particularly if your someone likes taking great photos.
Go-Pro Hero 4
For the photographer who is also an adventurer, the Go-Pro is a fun gadget. Capture live action video with the Go-Pro mounted on a helmet, bike, surf board, anything you can think of. Photographers can take the jump to video without breaking the bank, while families can enjoy the exploits of mom or dad while safely at home.
Build your Own SLR
For lovers of photography and who love to know how things work, here’s a great project. This Lomography Konstruktor SLR kit offers photographers an idea of how a real camera works – complete with a 50mm lens. For the price this is a great little present.
Here’s an easy stocking stuffer for your favourite photographer – a fun t-shirt that comes in all sizes. You can also find the same graphics in ties, onesies, and mugs for quick presents.
Camera Ice Cubes
A fun present and a great idea for a host/hostess gift – an ice cube tray that pops out little cameras!
Universal Ring Flash
Serious portrait photographers, particularly those who want to work with closeups, will absolutely love this universal ring flash, which offers soft, even light.
A Great Camera Bag…
…is a fabulous present, and makes the carrying of cameras (as well as the various periphery) that much easier. Kelly Moore has some fantastic bags for men and women, and has even released some brand new designs for the holiday season.
Photography Magazine Subscription
To help budding photographers increase their skills consider giving them a year’s subscription to a quality photography magazine, such as Photography Monthly.
This fun Kickstarter-started gadget is the perfect accessory for the GoPro or Smartphone-obsessed photographer who likes to have a little light to go with their photos. Tiny and weather resistant, it easily slips into a bag or can be combined with up to four other cubes for even more flexible lighting. Check it out here.
Still not seeing the perfect gift? A photo session can never turn you wrong – particularly if you have growing kids, or how about a one-on-one photography workshop?
