The Splurge

If your significant other, child, or someone you want to splurge or is just getting into photography, this camera with all of the accessories is perfect. It's a great starter set for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level or begin to earn income with photography.



Ultimate Gift Guide for Photographers - DSLR Camera with Accessories - a wonderful gift set

I have an older version of this camera and love it. I had a point and shoot before this one and didn't realize what I was missing! (Prices are correct as of this writing)




Ultimate Gift Guide for Photographers - zoom lens


If that special person on your list already has the camera, a new lens is a very welcome gift. This one is a zoom lens and is one that we have for capturing high quality images from a distance. I also have the 35mm that is my favorite for up close and personal shots. My favorite photos recently have been taken with the 35mm.

Ultimate Gift Guide for Photographers - Designer Camera Strap  I LOVE THIS!

Gift Guide for Photographers. No more cords! Wireless memory card - genius!

This little thing is genius. It's a wireless memory card that let's you see your photos on your computer as you shoot them. These are available with various storage capacity and options. It's definitely on my wish list this year. 




Gift Guide for Photographers. I need one of these!


One of the best ways to improve the quality of your photos is by using a tripod. It makes the photos much sharper. This one is lightweight and adjustable and can be used on most surfaces.





Gift Guide for Photographers. This would be great for outdoor and landscape photography.


For the photographer who is on the go, this backpack camera case is perfect. My husband has one of these and has carried it on a plane and out in the woods. It's sturdy, easy to carry, and keeps your camera and equipment protected.



Under $50



Gift Guide for Photographers. A backup battery is a great idea. Perfect stocking stuffer!

A spare battery can be a lifesaver when shooting lots of photos. You wouldn't want to miss the shot because your camera battery suddenly died. This would fit nicely in a stocking.




Gift Guide for Photographers. This would be so handy!





Sometimes there's no place to set up a regular tripod. Enter the gorilla pod. We have one of these and have wrapped it around trees, poles, and railing to get the perfect shot. It's not for heavy cameras, but will work with point and shoot camera and lightweight DSLR.




Not exactly sure what they need? A Bay Photo Lab gift card is something every photographer would love the have. Their services range from high quality photo printing to metal prints to photo books and dozens of other products. They can even make your photos into Christmas ornaments!

Go here to see everything that they offer.




Maybe learning better photography would make a good gift. There are several great courses offered at Digital Photography School. From learning the basics to specialized techniques for portraits, landscape photography and more, there's something for every photographer.

To help stay focused, how about a cup of coffee in this fun mug





Hang these camera ornaments of the tree for a smile. They're a perfect companion to a camera under the tree. 



Here's aother fun one. This travel mug looks like a large camera lens. I love it!



A fun t shirt always makes a good gift.  I love this one and it comes it many colors.





Gift Guide for Photographers. This would be a great stocking stuffer.

A dirty camera doesn't take very good photos. This camera cleaning kit would be a great stocking stuffer.



Gift Guide for Photographers. This would be a nice gift for any photographer.



Educational photography books always make good gifts. This one is a best seller on Amazon and is a great price.




Gift Guide for Photographers. Photo editing software is a wonderful gift!



By far the best way to make your photos look their best is by using photo editing software. It can enhance nearly every photo and can erase a multitude of unwanted elements.



Gift Guide for Photographers. A magazine subscription is a great idea!


Perfect for anyone who loves to take nature pictures. We subscribe to Outdoor Photographer and look forward to reading it each month. It's full of good articles and advice.






Every photographer needs their photos hanging on their walls. A nice frame would be a great gift for anyone, but especially a photographer.


Gift Guide for Photographers. A wireless camera remote is a great idea.



A wireless remote paired with a tripod can produce high quality photos. It reduces even the tiniest vibrations from the camera and makes the photos incredibly clear and sharp.




For the phone photographer:



Gift Guide for Photographers. This is genius! I had no idea they made tripods for phones!

We all use our phones to snap photos and take videos. This small gorilla pod for large phones is perfect for hands-free photography and videography. It's great for Periscope too!

Go here for tips for capturing a great shot using your phone or camera. 




Gift Guide for Photographers. Who knew? A wireless remote for our phone camera! Genius!

A wireless remote for your phone is the perfect companion for the phone tripod. It takes phone photography to the next level, for sure.
