Beginner Camera

Nikon Beginner Camera – This camera kit is pretty inclusive for a starter set.  The D3500 is the newer version of the D3400 and is a great starter DSLR camera


Nikon 50mm Fixed 1.4 Lens – This is the lens needed for taking awesome portraits and macro shots. If you want those awesome blurry background photos, then this is the lens to get. For more information on how to pick a lens read this: How to Pick a Camera Lens.

Tamron 24mm – 70mm Lens – This lens is a prime professional level lens and it is perfect for the experienced photographer. It is my go-to lens for portraits and travel.


Complete Filter Set – This set of filters is a great starter set for those that haven’t purchased filters before. It comes with a UV filter, polarizing filter, neutral density filters, and macro filters.  Make sure you pay attention to your threading size before you purchase filters.

UV Filter – This is a must-have filter for every lens you own. It protects the camera sensor from damaging UV light. Luckily they are pretty inexpensive.

Circular Polarizer – This filter is great for taking awesome sky photos and making the water look extremely clear. It is a fun filter to play with and can make a difference in how your photos come out.

Neutral Density Filters – Neutral density filters are great for making photos involving water smooth and dreamy. Again another fun set of filters to play with.

Must Have Accessories

Tripod – A basic tripod is a must for every photographer and it doesn’t need to be expensive for basic photographers.

Extra Batteries – It sucks when you are in the middle of a photography outing and your camera runs out of battery. Having extra batteries will eliminate that problem.

Battery Case – If you do get the extra batteries, it’s nice to have a place to keep them!

Memory Cards – Extra memory cards for your camera are a must as well. This will keep you from having to delete photos if you run out of memory.

Cleaning Kit – It is extremely important to keep your camera and lenses clean.

Fun To Have Accessories

Fashion Camera Straps – These come in many different varieties and can be unique to your style. Here is just one below.

Portable Camera Pouch – This makes putting your camera in any bag easy and keeps the camera safe.

Camera Backpack – This comes in handy when exploring the outdoors and bringing your camera along, such as hiking or camping trips.

Fancy Camera Bag – For those ladies that want to look chic and not touristy carrying around their camera. There are lots to choose from, and below is only one example.

Those are all my recommendations on the perfect gifts for photographers. If you have any other recommendations or just questions about products, leave me a comment below!
