Shutter Time 2012 Holiday Gift Guide for Photographers

Santa’s New Bag, 2012

Before we start dishing on the Shutter Time 2012 Holiday gift guide photographers will love, we have a few things to crunch over first. Have a listen as we discuss a couple of headscratchers that led Mac to Facebook and Google Plus to start a discussion to hear your thoughts.

Oh, Canada

Decades following the US initiative on protecting the copyright of images taken by photographers for commissioned work, Canada stepped up, eh? We briefly talk about the impact for photographers.

Candy Cane Delight

We start the Christmas portion of the show at 27:49. We came up with 5 gifts each we think would make excellent choices for the photographer in your world, including yourself! Nothing wrong with a little gift giving to the hardest working photographer you know, right?

Bits n’ Bites

Do you have any gift ideas to add to our list? What are your thoughts about the updates to Bill C-11 for Canadian photographers? Did Sony Australia slaughter their photography fanbase with their latest Unfit to DSLR campaign? If you have any thoughts about this show, join in the discussion online or leave a comment here! We are of course on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Don’t forget we are on iTunes where you can subscribe for free.

Just another note — we of course respect the opinion of others, and we thank other photographers for lending their voice to the discussion of photography, whether we may agree or not with them. It’s a beautiful thing when we can check egos at the door and just chat about the subject we all love most.

Thanks as always for tuning in. Truly! We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to listen to our show. I’m all a quiver just thinking about it. Thank you, thank you!

Cheers, y’all!
