There are gifts for the photographers on your Christmas list you can buy without the hassle of malls and crowds. Gifts they will love. Be a hero, a super Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and never leave your desk.
Photography gifts without leaving your house
1. Photography E-books
Every photographer wants to improve. Photography is a lot like golf: It takes a lot of practice, and success is dependent on many variables. Help the shutterbug in your life improve their skills with an e-book for Christmas. Digital Photography School recently released The Essential Guide to Portrait Photography – a 78-page downloadable e-book. (Editor’s note: This is a great book, a must have.)
The Secrets of Digital Photography website (digitalsecrets.net) has many well reviewed e-books on Nikon and Canon cameras, as well as other topics.
2. Website Memberships
Give the gift of membership to the photographer on your Christmas shopping list. Many photography websites are free, but paid subscriptions often offer additional functionality and access.
One of the best photography sites on the web is photo.net. A membership on this vibrant site offers a free email address, portfolio site, and savings on insurance.
Periodicals are a gift received 10-12 times. Help a photographer by buying a gift they’ll enjoy each month, learning for an entire year. Buy them a subscription to Popular Photography or Digital Photographer magazine.
Don’t forget: You can still purchase gifts from the Phottix Store, and save 5% until December 24.
