Take heart, weary shoppers; there are plenty of options to please the photographer on your holiday shopping list. (And, of course, that may be you shopping for yourself. Self-gifting is a time-honored tradition.) Here are three stocking stuffers we thought you'd like. Thanks to New York Institute of Photography Student Advisor and professional photographer Chris Corradino for these gift recommendations.
For Inspiration: Chased by the Light DVD
Here's the Amazon description of this beautiful creation.
A Photographic Journey with Jim Brandenburg tells the story of how one of the world's greatest nature photographers immersed himself in a Zen-like exploration of his craft and the untamed landscape of the rugged north woods. For 90 days, Brandenburg took only a single picture each day - one click of the shutter. The stunning images generated unprecedented reader interest as a National Geographic magazine cover story and as the best-selling book of his career. Undertaken at the pinnacle of Brandenburg s career, the 90-day project was motivated by his desperate need to renew his creativity and reconnect with natural settings that had been the primary sources of his inspiration. Chased by the Light documentary has won over 15 international awards and has been nominated for an Emmy.
