6. A little decoration for packshot photographers

In photography, small decoration is a good way to play with perspectives, effects and images. Having several mirror shapes (arch, round, square, etc.) allows you to instantly add character to photographs. As for the supports, they are nice accessories for highlighting and photographing small objects. Having several supports, of different shapes and heights, gives depth to product photos! Even more, these elements can be integrated into everyday decoration: no need to have your own studio to enjoy them!

For who ? Amateur and professional photographers

7. A pop photo background for photo studio photographers

Photo backdrops are rolls of colored paper that allow photographers to add some pep to their photo studio shoot. Because the backgrounds are expensive, photographers, even professionals, are often content to take classic and neutral colors to satisfy as many of their clients as possible. A gift is an opportunity to revive their photo backgrounds by opting for more fun colors, like orange or lilac!

For who ? Professional photographers
This is a good idea: If your loved one has a photo background support or if they regularly work in a photo studio. Be careful with the size of the support though!

8. Stepladders for professional photographers

This is definitely a gift you hadn't thought of! The wooden stepladder made in France is a rather original gift idea. With two or three steps, it is used for individual photos or when taking group photos to create depth effects. It is possible to cover it with a fabric to change its color or give it a draped effect.

In addition to finding its perfect place in a photo studio or workshop, it can also easily find its place in a smaller apartment, as extra furniture for example!

For who ? Professional photographers
It's a good idea: If your loved one regularly practices portrait photography and regularly welcomes models and groups to their studio, they will be delighted to adopt a podium to highlight their models!

An alternative to the stepladder: A pretty stool

Did you find the idea of ​​a podium interesting to accompany your loved one's photography activity but it is too big? Why not opt ​​for a pretty high stool? High stools are also popular with photographers for taking group photos or corporate photos. Narrower than a podium, the stool can fit more easily into a small space.

For who ? Professional photographers
It's a good idea: If your loved one regularly practices portrait or corporate photography, they will be delighted to adopt a podium to highlight their models!
