I don’t mind getting socks! Or Beard Oil! But, I have a cupboard full of these unused gifts. Often my partner would say “I just didn’t know what to get you”. If your partner is a photographer and you struggle to think of gifts that will be useful, then this article is for you. I have selected a number of Camera gifts from the B&H store, so you know you are getting high quality and top service. If you act now, you should get a delivery just in time for Christmas.
A tripod is the creative photographers best friend. This hand selected collection of tripods would make ideal gifts for any photographer. For the beginner, these tripods will open a whole galaxy of creative photography. This gift could inspire long exposures, low-light and night photography. Being small they will complement any camera bag. Even pros can appreciate having a smaller tripod sometimes. All these tripods will support a medium DSLR.

Camera bags are so useful for the camera enthusiast. The larger backpacks are are for serious photographers who want to keep their camera and lenses well protected and organised. The backpack is a serious purchase and you really need to know the size of cameras and lenses. The hand-selected camera bags below are useful for all photographers. Having a smaller bag for 1 camera and just a couple of lenses is ideal for the travel photographer or anyone who likes hiking or climbing with their camera gear. The Holster Bags are perfect for travel or just walking around with a single camera and lens. Slingshot bags are a fantastic alternative to the backpacks. They allow you to hike and climb and they have really easy access to your camera. Fashion bags are for the Female photographer who doesn’t want to look like she is going to boot camp.

Several years ago I declared that the next big invention in photography would be a hovering tripod. It seemed far fetched and bizarre, but when you consider that modern drones are hovering tripods with much more scope than I could have imagined. The only reason I never got a drone in Iceland (apart from a declining salary) was that everyone else was buying them. You don’t have to be a photographer to appreciate a flying drone. Drones can assist with security and rescue. Farmers in Iceland use them to round up sheep.

The Crystal Hasselblad will make a surprise gift for most photo enthusiasts. Even those who will never own a Hasselblad.
I always took a GoPro with me on most trips. I am not an adrenaline junky, I used to set it up to do a time-lapse when I was busy with my photography. Because it is small and lightweight, the GoPro fits into any kit bag. These modern GoPros will even photograph Northern Lights and create a time-lapse.
I can’t count the number of times, a customer has run out of memory on a photo workshop. Having a Portable Back-up is essential for those long trips with lots of photos.
Taking photos in windy conditions can be tricky, having a stone bag (tripod hammock) in your kit makes difference.
