As photography enthusiasts gear up for the Christmas season, Journalist Tina Clough takes an in-depth look at what the wildlife photography market has to offer those with a keen interest in this increasingly popular art form.
Traditionally wildlife photographers have caused their relatives to tear their hair out at Christmas time, partly down to an absence of knowledge when it comes to the equipment and clothing used to capture wildlife.
With this in mind, Stealth-Gear the expert providers of outdoor photography clothing and accessories have launched a unique range of stocking fillers ideal for even the fussiest photography enthusiast.
Craig Derbyshire, managing director of Stealth Gear who specialise in providing wildlife watching supplies, to the photography market, said: “When it comes to buying loved ones photography related gifts, unless you are technologically savvy and educated in the very latest trends, the photography world can be a minefield.
“This is why we have developed a range of affordable photography accessories ideal for both the amateur and professional photographer.”
Topping the charts this Christmas is the all new double bean bag camera support from Stealth-Gear which can be used in a variety of locations, including the car, on rocks, on fence posts and for low level photography.
Priced at just £24.99, this product is ideal for DSLRS, and comes complete with a unique two in one removable shoulder securing strap which can be adjusted accordingly, which allows you to carry the bean bag comfortably and wrap the strap around branches or fences for extra support.
For those who routinely take low levels photographs in bad weather, the Extreme 2 Bracers could be the ideal stocking filler. Also priced at just £24.99, these bracers are designed to keep your Stealth Gear Photographers Trousers 2 in the correct position whilst taking low level macro shots where kneeling is required.
Boasting 100 per-cent rubber elastic and adjustable technology, these bracers are a ‘one size fits all’ product, giving confidence to those who love to store their accessories and lenses in their trouser pockets, but worry that the extra weight will weigh them down.
If your loved one boasts forgetful tendencies, the Stealth Gear memory management wallet can hold up to ten compact flash memory cards, ideal for those who often leave their memory cards out in the wilderness!
Available in both green and charcoal grey, the memory management wallet is made from the same high quality polyester suede as the entire Extreme clothing range, offering great protection from the elements.
