Christmas Gift Ideas for the Photographer on Your List

With Christmas coming up, people are always looking for gift ideas, and it can be hard to buy for the photographer (s) on your list if you're not a photographer yourself.

That said, here's some great Christmas gift ideas for the photographer (s) on your list.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (Win/Mac), Adobe Photoshop CS5, or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (depending on your budget). Adobe makes the industry standard software for image processing, and all of these programs are top notch.

Rode Shotgun Microphone - if the photographer on your list uses their DSLR for video, then they'll love this shotgun style microphone. I have one and use it all the time. It delivers EXCELLENT quality audio for your video production.

Professional Heavy Duty Ball Head with Quick Release Plate - these are a fantastic value and precision made. I recently bought one and just love it!

Every photographer can use more memory! Transcend makes excellent quality memory cards. They have a lifetime guarantee, and I've been using them exclusively for several years now with no problem.

Photographers love camera bags. You can never get enough! I have WAY TOO MANY, and I just bought a new one a couple weeks ago! This LowePro Slingshot is a great little bag that's light and perfect for quick access.

And of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't put in a shameless plug for our Art of the Image Speedlight Softbox! The perfect gift for any photographer who wants to take their portraits to a whole new level. Check out our Christmas Speedlite Softbox Sale for some great deals!
