Things to keep in mind when shopping for travel photography gear

If you want to hit a home run on your birthday or Christmas gifts for your traveling friends who love photography, do keep an eye out for the following things:

  • What camera do they already own? Many photography gear is brand specific. Not all lenses go on each camera. If you don’t know: ASK! Photographers love to chat about their camera and gear.

  • What kind of traveler or photographer are you buying for? Does she travel carry-on only? There is no use in buying them a useful, but bulky photo booth. Is your friend an adventure traveler? Then the photography gear you’re buying as a gift must be sturdy!

  • Stay on budget. When you’re shopping for photography gear, it is easy to go over budget. Big time! Keep an eye out for those Black Friday discounts, as photography gear is usually on sale.

  • I’m steering this gift guide towards your traveling female friends, loved-ones and family. Because I believe there is enough black, bulky (boring) photography gear out there. But finding some cute, versatile and sturdy stuff for women can be harder. If you’re reading this for travel photography gear gift ideas for your male friend, please shop ahead. All products I recommend are also available without flowers or pink colors.

With my below-mentioned gift ideas for travel photography presents, you’ll do a great job at becoming the best gift-giver ever!

Memory Cards

No photographer or traveler can go without memory cards. With files getting bigger and cameras having the option to film; memory cards are always too small. You can never go wrong with an extra memory card for your friend who travels.

Keep in mind, more GB is always better, and the faster the card, the better. I love the ScanDisk memory cards as they go with any camera and fit into every card reader and most computers.
