Every year my husband asks me what I want for Christmas, and every year I am stumped with how to answer. But this year I started by thinking outside the box. I wanted gifts that would not only make me happy but also prove useful. So this list gives you fun, useful gifts that also have a nice photography element to them as well.
I saw these on Amazon and while they are affiliate links you I’m sure that you’ll want to add them to your gift list as well.
These LED lights are great for portraits. They are portable and battery operated so you don’t have to worry about clients tripping over wires, you can use them outside and they will guarantee beautiful photos.
You will always need back up cards so this is one of those gifts that is a necessity. If your camera uses CF
cards you can find them using this link. I will share my reason for adding these. One year the lock switch broke on my card and it became unreadable. I had to trust that I got all of the images off it because I couldn’t see the photos in Lightroom or my camera. I had to learn the hard way that SD cards are a vital part of my life and business. I never want to miss a photo of my children doing something amazing or those special moments between them and my husband. I always have my camera ready and fresh cards inside.
IF the photographer in your life is also a business owner Freshbooks is a MUST. It is the best way to keep track of your books, clients, and billing. FreshBooks is simple and intuitive, so they’ll spend less time on paperwork and wow their clients with how professional your invoices look.
I hope this list provides you with a starting point for your fave photog.
Love and Lattes,
