Gift Ideas for Photographers 2017


Photographers can be tricky to buy for, as most are very particular about their camera choices and equipment. While a camera and lenses may be too personal, there are so many gifts you can buy that special someone who has a love for photography. Below I outline the Ultimate Guide to the Best Gifts for Photography Enthusiasts. Whether they are just starting out, or established in their craft, these gifts will be a great addition to their kit!

Best Equipment to Buy for Photography Enthusiasts:

What do you buy a photographer that already has a camera and a plethora of lenses in their kit? If you are buying for someone special and can fork out the dough, two amazing additions to their repertoire would be a drone or a goPro. These are items that they may not buy themselves, but would have a ton of fun shooting with. Especially if they travel a lot, are getting into more video, or are adventure seekers!

DJI Mavic Pro Drone

When it comes to drones, buying cheap is a waste of money in my opinion. If you want good quality images and something that will last, buy DJI or Spark.

New GoPro Hero6

As for GoPro’s, you can’t really go wrong. You could probably get away with an older model that’s a little cheaper, but I would personally opt for the brand new goPro Hero6 if it’s in your budget.

The new features include a more powerful processor, recording at 60 frames per second versus 30, more stabilization, touchzoom, and a few more features that set it apart from it’s predecessor.Gift for Photography Enthusiasts GoPro6

Best Accessory Gift to buy for Photography Enthusiasts:

The GorillaPod Flexible Tripod is AMAZING for travel or shooting on location. It’s compact, easy to manipulate in a variety of situations or landscapes, and is nice and lightweight. I’ve been eyeing this for my travel as my big tripod I use at home isn’t exactly suitcase friendly!

Best Practical Gift for Photography Enthusiasts:

Back it up, back it up, back it upppp! An external Hard Drive or a subscription to a Cloud Service like Dropbox, iCloud or Google Drive is a great gift for someone that is really upping their photography game and shooting lots. There is seriously nothing worse than losing your photos or video, or running out of space on your devices. An extra bump in storage is such a luxury for photographers! Shop the External Hard drive and SDCards I use below:

Best Camera Bags for Photography Enthusiasts

This is the backpack I use and I LOVE it. I honestly don’t know how I travelled with all my equipment without it. It’s so easy to access everything, and the laptop storage is perfect for going through security or  when you want to work on a project. I’m actually surprised it’s as affordable as it is!

Shop: Lowepro Fastpack BP 150 AW II – A Travel-Ready Backpack for a DSLR, 11″ Laptop and Tablet 

A lot of camera bags aren’t exactly what you’d call fashion forward. I really like the look of this one, and it’s reasonably priced compared to many out there, and has great reviews on amazon.Gift for Photography Enthusiasts Camera Backpack

If you can splurge, I’ve been gushing over this bag *hearteyes emoji*:

 ONA Camps Bay Camera and Laptop Backpack.

Something Fun & Budget Friendly:

I love the little keepsakes these two devices create. The instant camera is a fun thing to take to parties or events that will be a little less daunting and overwhelming than a massive DSLR, and something everyone can take part in.Gift for Photographers Fuji Instax

Shop the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera, Ice Blue

Another new option (I just found out about this from The Blonde Abroad’s gift guide for Female Travellers, and it sounds so cool!) is Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer. You can print photos from your smart phone into cute polaroids without having to bring another device with you! Just snap away when you are out and about, and then print them when you get home. So smart! Check it out here:
