Mother's Day is right around the corner and we had time to reflect on all the talented women who raise families and lead successful careers in photography. We couldn't possibly name them all, but we applaud these women for the dedication and hard work they put in day in and day out. For the photographer in your life, what better way to say Happy Mother’s Day than a thoughtful gift to add to their gear bag. We created a quick gift guide of sought-after products that moms in any level of photography would love.
To jump start our gift guide, for those looking to improve their headshot or video work, the Westcott 18” Bi-Color LED Ring Light Kit has been a top seller. If she’s a content creator, a ring light has become the must have accessory. Right now, this ring light is on sale for $179.90.
As photographers, sometimes we get so busy taking photos of other people that we forget to capture our own lives. Having a small, compact camera for everyday use like the Canon EOS M50 Mark II makes it convenient enough to take it with you anywhere you go and capture those timeless moments. With its improved 4k video autofocus and vertical video feature, it makes it even easier to share mom’s favorite moments online!
For the wedding or portrait photographer who is looking for a new camera bag, the Peak Design Everyday Totepack is sleek, comfortable and versatile. It’s large enough to carry a camera, multiple lenses, accessories and a 15” laptop. It’s hands-down one of the best-looking camera bags out there and will make her look like the professional she is.
For a sophisticated and reliable camera strap, the Clever Supply Minimal Anchor leather straps are the real deal. These straps are infused with both high-quality, hand-made leather and Peak Design anchor links making them super easy to attach or remove when needed. You get the best of both worlds with a classy yet functional design.
Stepping into flash photography can be daunting. For those who are shooting in low-light or want to step up their game with artificial lighting, the Godox VING V860IIC is the perfect flash kit. For a flash, it’s affordable price steals the show, the large Li-Ion battery provides hundreds of shots more than standard AA powered flashes with faster recharge times and is an awesome incentive to get your feet wet in flash photography. Plus, for the wedding photographer, a flash is a necessity especially for those late-night receptions.
