With Christmas creeping up, to help you beat the rush, we’ve compiled a list of potential gifts for the photographer(s) in your life, amateur and professional alike!
A tripod is perfect gift, as you can find one to suit any budget. We’ve picked out 3 tripods from one of our favourite brands JOBY, each varying in price and purpose, so you’re bound to find a tripod that suits.
JOBY Gorillapod 325 Tripod
The JOBY Gorillapod is lightweight and compact and can hold up to 325g of weight. The tripod is portable and easy to store and features flexible joints, allowing your camera to be positioned onto a variety of objects and in various positions.
As well as the standard JOBY 325 Gorillapod features, this model also features strong magnetic feet for extra versatility.
JOBY Gorillapod 3K Tripod
The JOBY Gorillapod 3K Tripod is ideal for advanced compact and mirrorless cameras. It supports weight of up to 3kg, ideal for on-the-go still photography, vlogging and even live streaming.
These tripods make a great addition to any photographer's kit, their unique design allows them to be wrapped and moulded to surrounding objects to ensure the perfect shot. We’d love to see one of these in our stockings on Christmas day!
Creating custom photo albums are easy these days; simply upload your photos, choose your album and wait for it to arrive. The album could be a collection of their photography, memories together, or even a book of inspiring photography styles!
Here are a few of our favourite custom photo albums:
Photobox: A4 & A3 Lay Flat Photo Books
Price: from £29.99
This book is called a Lay Flat, because it does exactly that at 180º! It includes a lay flat binding, premium extra thick 380 gsm paper, and a gift box or gift-wrapping service (at an additional cost).
The book comes in A4 and A3 format, and you can have between 26 and 90 pages. This book could also double up as a portfolio for their work - think smart not hard!
Papier: The Minimalist
Price: from £30.40
This personalised hardback book has a minimum of 30 pages and maximum of 100. Available in 3 colour options, and the company offer plastic free packaging and sustainably sourced papers!
Notonthehighstreet : Personalised Photography Lovers Book
This photobook is ideal for those who already have their images printed. This personalised photo record book contains high quality blank pages that can be customised however you wish. The front cover text can also be customised. A great personalised gift for aspiring photographers!
This gift choice might require a little research, as the type and brand of lens will vary. If you have one, you can visit your local photography store with the camera model and they can give you a helping hand, or even a high street electrical retailer such as Currys should be able to help.
Different lenses transform photography styles, breathing new life into the way your loved one captures a shot!
If you’re looking for advice on lenses, we recommend Digital Photography School’s blog ‘3 Must-Have Camera Lenses Every Photographer Should Own’, which explains the key types of lenses for the most popular brands.
We might be slightly biased, but the Peli cases (and torches for those night-time shots) have been a firm favourite with photographers far and wide for 30 years!
Peli cases are crushproof, dustproof and waterproof and come with the famous Peli Lifetime Guarantee! A gift for life, not just for Christmas.
We even offer case customisation options, such as custom our nameplates!
