Photography Gift Ideas
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Friends, there are only 90 shopping days left until Christmas! Here are some gift ideas for the photographer in your life:
A gift subscription to a photography magazine is always a sure bet. A subscription to Popular Photography is $24 for two years and $14 for one year (12 issues per year). For our friends in the UK, Practical Photography runs you (L)11.25 for a 13-issue year.
If you’re looking to spoil someone with something a bit more extravagant, find out what kind of lens they’ve been yearning for and splurge! Some of the top rated lenses on B&H’s site include the Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL-II Manual Focus Lens for Nikon AIS for $379.99, the Nikon Normal Macro 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro Nikkor Autofocus for $479.95, the Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus Lens for $1,299.95, and the Canon Normal EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Autofocus Lens for $1,599.88.
Tripods and other camera support are also a great way to go, especially if the photographer in your life travels a lot. If they already have a tripod, consider giving them a monopod to expand their flexibility. Or, give them a spare quick release assembly for the tripod they already have – if they have more than one camera, they’ll thank you for giving them the ability to switch out cameras easily without having to remove the quick release.
I hope I have given you some good ideas for your Christmas shopping this year. Feel free to share your own ideas in the comments!
