Our buddy, lifestyle photographer Erik Valind, was in town taping a class for Kelby Training Online and I snagged him as my in-studio Guest for a special “Holiday Gifts for Photographers” episode of “The Grid” (our weekly talkshow for photographers).

These are an entirely different collection of gifts from my “Gonzo Gear Guide” that I published here on Monday — these are all entirely new, awesome, super useful (and mostly inexpensive) yet totally cool gear for the photographer on your Holiday Gift List (except Erik apparently has the holiday gift budget of a neurosurgeon but I will say, even though some of his suggestions cost a bit more, he picked some really great values, including a lens deal that really surprised me).

You can watch our Gift Guide for Photographer episode above. Happy shopping everybody! :)
