Stocking Fillers & Christmas Gifts for Photographers – By Miriam King

4 12 2009

If you know any photographers (which I presume you do if you’re reading this) then you’ll know they can be a bit particular about their gear. So if you’re thinking of buying them anything serious like cameras, lens or lights you’re better off just asking them exactly what they want or buying them a voucher for your local camera shop to avoid tears and tantrums on Christmas morning. So this guide is purely the fun stuff, stocking fillers at all different price ranges. I hope you find something in there that the photographer in your life might enjoy…or to put on your Santa Wishlist. Enjoy!
