Creative < $25 Stocking Stuffers for the photographer in your life.

Have a photographer in your life? Don't know what to get them for the Holiday Season?

Let me tell you that real photo gear is EXPENSIVE- like a lens is over $200 to $3,000 a piece!

Strapped for cash? We have some really cool ideas here from equipment that we REALLY use to get amazing images on a budget.


copper pipe

need to create awesome images with this little product from Amazon/ Homedepot?

This is one of my favorite products to use for couples, families and headshots.

See the link here:


Crystal Ball / lens ball

This is such a cool thing to mess around with outside or the the studio. For only under $20, it's such a great gift.


Heart light

Want something unique? I love this little light for not only decor, but also for some cool light events.


Light Prism Sphere

This is such a cool thing to create amazing rainbows or light fractals.

Here is the link:


String lights

We love working with these little string lights. We have our subject holding them, or we wrap our lens in them to create some nice light bokeh spots.


Cellphone Gells

We love using these cellophone colors on our flashes for studio work.



I love using these to create reflections and double images int he studio or outsdie


Any other ideas for photographers in your life? I would love to hear your ideas!
