If you have a photographer friend, you probably think you hit the Gifting Jackpot. There are so many things photographers need, or want, or desire. There is a whole universe of gift ideas for photographers just waiting to be discovered.
Sadly, this is not the case. If you have a photographer friend, you probably already know that, yes, there are many things that a photographer son may want, but photographers are incredibly specific. Your photographer daughter is almost surely in need of a new lens. But at the same time, the chances that you would get the right lens for her are zero.
She needs a specific lens, for a specific camera, and unless you have a discussion first, you are just not going to get her the right gear. This is why I created a list of five items that every photographer will love to get, no matter what system they are using and no matter how advanced or novice they are.
