Have you taken the 2012 Reader Survey yet? If not, you need to get on that. Whether this is your first time here or you read everyday, please take a moment to give me some feedback! Thank you!


I thought it would be fun to do a round up of a few things I’m loving this holiday season that would make excellent gifts for the photographer in your life. I present the 2012 Photography Gift Guide:

1. Moneymaker Camera Strap: I am completely obsessed with this particular camera strap – it is definitely on my wishlist this year. Not only does it look nice, it can also hold some serious weight. I always shoot with two cameras at once, and the straps I currently use are a bit unwieldy. I’ve been looking for a better solution, and this may be it!

2. Camera Ornaments from Photo JoJo: These ornaments are actually hand painted glass! I think they are so adorable. Should we ever get around to actually getting a tree this year, they’d be perfect for it.

3. Fujifilm Instax Camera & Film: I have been gunning for one of these for a while. The last of my polaroid film is about to run out, so I think it’s time to find a replacement.

4. Nikon Lens Mug: As you know, I am a Nikon girl all the way. It only makes sense that I should drink my morning coffee from a Nikon mug as well.

5. 100 Ideas That Changed Photography by Mary Warner Marien: This looks like such an awesome coffee table book for anyone interested in how photography got to where it is today.

6. Camera Hearts Letterpress Card: I’m a sucker for anything adorned with cameras, and I would love to have letterpress stationary with cameras on it!

What photography related items are on your wishlist this year?

    That Moneymaker strap has been in my eye for the past month but I can’t seem to pull the trigger on buying it because I juuuust got a D3s and I should be happy with my current R-strap… but guh. It’s so pretty. I wonder how comfortable it is.

    I don’t know why I said “in my eye”… let’s just blame the lack of sleep.
