Stylish Camera & Laptop Bag
Joe Totes is one of my favorite camera bag brands. Similar to the Kelly Moore brand (but a little easier on the budget), they have really spacious camera bags that are stylish for everyday use, I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on mine!
This bag has removable dividers that you can configure to your exact needs. Easily fits a full-frame body, 2 lenses, and a flash in the main compartment with plenty to spare for my wallet and keys. The exterior pockets are perfect for keeping your batteries, SD cards, and accessories secure.
Travel Camera & Laptop Backpack
If you’re looking to gift for the adventurous photographer on the go, this backpack by Tiding might be the perfect pick. Its sleek design gives all the hipster vibes. And, it’s quite spacious.
Inside you’ll find plenty of configurable space for your camera and lenses. Plus, a designated space for credit cards, travel documents, and a laptop compartment. The outside pockets will git all your accessories, including a water bottle pocket. And it has a dual purpose as a functional backpack to keep a change of clothes and other items safely secured inside.
Personalized Camera Straps
Fotostrap has great unisex camera straps that look great for our guys and gals who want a super professional and sophisticated look!
Check out the Graphite strap. You can even personalize this strap with your name, monogram, or logo.
Added bonus? Fotostrap contributes a percentage of every sale to the nonprofit organization, Fotolanthropy.
MagMod Starter Flash
If your photographer is looking to up their flash photography game, the MagMod starter kit is the perfect holiday gift for them.
It is an adapter system compatible with most common on-camera AND off-camera flashes that creates soft, diffused light.
This kit comes packed with the MagGrip, MegSphere, and MagGrid.

- Photoshop on iPad is included in the 1TB plan. It’s also included in the 20GB plan when you purchase by Jan. 31, 2020
Floral Camera Strap
I get so many compliments on my floral camera strap. I personally like the dark black floral because it is a great pop of color in comparison to my typical all-black wedding photographer ensemble.
And honestly, a photographer can’t have too many camera straps. I have a bunch, and when I am at family functions or events where I am just shooting for fun, having my camera strap complimenting my outfit is an extra bonus!
Memory Card Keychain
Listen… if your photographer has never considered stashing away a memory card for a rainy day (or an “oops moment”), THEY NEED THIS!
One time, I totally forgot my memory card book when I showed up to a family portrait photography session. I mean who’s perfect right? This little thing was my LIFE saver that day.
I hope you enjoyed these photographer gift suggestions!
