Gift Ideas for Photographers
So, it’s almost Christmas again – yay! But if you are anything like me, you’ll only just have started doing your Christmas gift shopping… but don’t worry, help is at hand! If you have a keen photographer amongst your friends and family, check out my great gift ideas for photographers:
A Piece of Photo Art
Why not search out a few of their favourite photos and make them into a stunning piece of wall art for everyone to admire? There are lots of different companies offering plenty of ideas for ways to display your best photos…
A Photography Course
Let’s face it, there’s always something new to learn so why not treat someone you love to a photography course of some kind. There are lots of options out there, and they cover all different aspects of photography… from basic camera techniques to advanced techniques to specific courses for landscape or portrait photography. And there is a course to suit every skill level – just make sure you read reviews of the course or get recommendations before you buy one.
A Photography Book
We all love to look at beautiful images, right? So why not search out a coffee table book of your recipient’s favourite photography subject – whether that’s landscape, abstract, portrait, wildlife? There are just so many beautiful photography books out there that any photographer would love to own (partly because we love to admire the work of others and partly because we all dream of creating equally stunning images!).
A Camera Bag
There are lots of fantastic camera bags out there, and if your photography enthusiasts are anything like me, they are always looking for a bigger bag to house their ever expanding collection of photography gear, lol!
This is one that is definitely on my Christmas list! For someone who loves trying out new techniques and taking creative shots, this piece of kit is a must have nowadays. And for only around £20 it won’t break the bank!
How about a gift voucher for a camera shop so they can buy some new gear? Keen photographers more often than not have some piece of kit they desperately want to buy! Or why not buy a voucher for somewhere that produces photo art so that they can create their own masterpiece to hang on their wall?
This is something else that is on my Christmas list… I need some new software for tinkering with my photos (which I love doing!). There are lots of options out there but probably the two most popular are Photoshop and Lightroom (both from Adobe)… although these are not cheap gifts!!
So there you have it – a few of my favourite gifts for photographers…. I hope it’s given you some ideas!
How are you getting on with your gift buying – have you nearly finished or have you not even started yet?!
