Father’s Day photography gifts can be hard to come up with, especially when you feel like he has all of the equipment that he’ll ever need (and then some).
But, we did some deep, dark internet research to find unique photography gifts for Father’s Day that won’t break the bank, and that will definitely leave him smiling for quite some time!
Good Father’s Day Photography Gift Idea: A Wide-Format Print
No photography man cave is complete without some beautiful works of art, works that the father in your life created, hanging on his wall.
What photography gift for dad could be better than a wide-format print of his own kids?
Paul’s Photo provides wide-format prints with incredible speed (just 24-48 hours) that can be as large as 44” by 120”, or the size of two or three toddlers!
They also have incredible customer service and triple check the photo’s contrast, color, and profile for the type of paper being used to ensure dad’s totally happy with his newest prized possession.
Better Father’s Day Gift Idea: A Photo Book
While a wide-format print is one of the better Father’s Day photography gift ideas, it definitely doesn’t top a photobook.
I don’t know what it is about seeing your work prominently displayed on a coffee table that really makes you feel like a professional, but for $50, these leather photo books are a pretty cheap ego boost for dads with a camera.
And if your budget is a little tighter this year, or if your dad likes things a little more rustic, you can spring for the linen cover for $30.
You save $20, but there's no sacrifice in the wow factor with this photo book!
Best Father’s Day Gift Idea: A Photography Adventure
If you’re feeling more generous this year, then a photography adventure courtesy of Creative Photo Academy might be in store.
If he had it his way, his Father’s Day photography gift would certainly include a roundtrip flight to somewhere like Africa or Cuba.
Creative Photo Academy offers all kinds of photography adventures that could take dad around the world. On top of the beautiful vacation, Creative Photo Academy is led by professional photographers who have made each trip dozens of times.
What this means is that dad would have unparalleled dives into the culture he could find nowhere else.
The Cuba trip, which is happening next March, is a week-long excursion into Old Havana (car photographers rejoice!), tobacco fields and a cigar factory, and the playing grounds of three of Cuba’s favorite sports (boxing, ballet, and baseball).
You can also sneak yourself into the trip with the couple’s package if you’re feeling especially adventurous!
For those of you that can’t drop thousands of dollars on photography gifts for dad, Creative Photo Academy definitely still has options (like the Bristlecone Night Sky adventure, which sells out every year).
One I suggest is the Eastern Sierra package. Your photography gifts for Father’s Day are not complete if they don’t come with some good, old-fashioned Americana!
Visit ghost towns, photograph sweeping landscapes, and maybe even camp your way through the experience if you want to go off the grid.
Each one of Creative Photo Academy’s adventures are small and customized to the group’s wishes. It’s a phenomenal way to meet people from all over the world, and a great to learn photography tricks as well!
