A Phone Camera Lens Kit:

For anyone who takes photos with their phone, a lens kit can be an excellent addition to their gear. This is really great for the person who likes to try new things and get artistic! You can get lenses with all kinds of effects and they often come in kits with several different styles. They’re easy to use and are very affordable. A gift that will undoubtedly be appreciated.

A gift certificate from Le Saint Motel:

Inspiration is key for any photographer's growth. What better place than a photoshoot studio that caters specifically to creativity. Le Saint Motel, both in Montreal and Laval, offer tons of space to explore, photograph and create colorful memories. The photographer and / or model in your life will be so excited when you introduce them to this imaginative and joyful space. Gift certificates are available on the website.


A session with a professional photographer:

Is the photography enthusiast in your life fonder of being in front of the camera? Maybe they’re tired of doing all the photoshoot work + modeling + post processing? You’re in luck! We have lots of talented photographers on staff and can help set up a session for the lucky person in your life.

Photo Editing Software:

Post-processing is an essential part of modern photography. Gifting a subscription to a professional photo editing software, such as Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop, can take their images to the next level. These tools offer a wide range of editing capabilities, allowing photographers to enhance colors, adjust exposure, and retouch their images with precision. With powerful software at their fingertips, they can transform their photographs into true works of art!


Honourable Mention:

A Polaroid Camera! Talk about instant gratification and creative expression! The joy of using a Polaroid camera lies in its simplicity and spontaneity. No need to wait for prints or scroll through digital files. Just point, shoot, and watch as your photo develops right before your eyes. Polaroid cameras are not just about capturing memories; they are about creating them. Is a Polaroid out of the budget? No worries! We offer rentals with a pack of film at both studios, which you can pre-purchase and add to your gift certificate! 

When it comes to gifting photography enthusiasts, the options are endless. By considering their interests, needs, and aspirations, you can find the perfect gift that will not only bring joy but also help them grow as photographers and models. Whether it's camera accessories, lens kits, educational resources, software, or just a really cool photoshoot location, these gifts will undoubtedly inspire and support their passion for capturing the perfect moment. Surprise your photography-loving friend or family member with a gift that will ignite their creativity and take their skills to new heights!
