Tripods are extremely helpful for landscape photos, time lapses and advanced selfies! To get a beginner photographer started, I recommend a sturdy but affordable tripod. The tripod will help with learning the camera basics but will not break the bank!
2. Personal strap
The straps that come on cameras are scratchy and uncomfortable. I love my strap which has the world map on it! It is comfy and adds a personal flare! This is a great gift that is super useful but also incredibly thoughtful and personal!
3. SD cards
SD cards are an expensive but necessary part of photography. A photographer can never have too many!
4. Adobe gift card
Adobe Photoshop is an essential but pricey subscription for photographers to have. A gift card to purchase Photoshop and Lightroom is extremely beneficial!
As someone who loves travel photos and taking advanced selfies, having a remote ready for when I do not have my travel partner Kellie to take them has become essential. This lovely little accessory is a great addition to pair with a tripod.
Taking my laptop and camera on the go has become a must. This pack has helped tremendously when I travel so that my precious technology is secure and protected. (This is the EXACT bag I have and it has been amazing!)
7. Phone Lenses
Sometimes, carrying around all your gear can get tiresome. These phones lenses are light weight and can help you create a stunning photo right from your phone!
8. Light Reflectors
Light Reflectors can make all the difference in a photo. When lighting conditions are unpredictable, these come in clutch.
Make sure to check the type of camera your friend or loved one has before buying any gear. Some things are not compatible with every camera.
