What a Photographer Wants

Word is out on the street that some of us are venturing out and doing a bit of shopping. Dedicated gear-head photographers are always lusting after something or another anyway, even if it takes months of internet research to find the best deal. Here are some suggestions for photographers (and everything here can be found on Etsy).

This one is a 1950's Beacon, from Whitehouse Products of Brooklyn, NY, and discovered for us by SuzisCornerBoutique. It takes 127 film, which is available from retailers such as B&H Photo. There are also some great sellers of toy cameras and film on Amazon.

There's no need to look like everyone else while you're out shooting. This unique bag lets you travel light and nimble. Check out this find from Porchlight Vintage.

Photographers never stop learning, and it's hard to resist the foray into the darkroom to play with the lights off. VintageBookNook has this set and quite a few other interesting books about photography.

Whether you are thinking about gifts this season for mom's, dad's or graduates in your life, or if you are gearing up for outdoor art shows, you may find this handmade easel from SalvagedBeauty to be just what you need.

The backside of this shirt from makristababy says "Honor Your Vision." This tee is already soft and worn in just the right places. Check out this shop for more great tee-shirt graphics for all ages. That's a nice cap, too, although it's not included with the tee.

What a Photographer Wants is compiled by Ann Wilkinson. A world traveler and self-taught photographer, look for Ann wandering around city streets and tromping through woods and hiking trails with her camera. After owning an international transportation business for many years, Ann has found her creative spirit again through the lens. See more at Ann's shop and her website, and say hello to her on her blog too.
