As the head photographer for We Are E.G.G., I have a deep understanding of the common dilemmas photographers face when choosing gears. Friends and clients often seek my recommendations, assuming that higher prices equate to better quality.

That's why customizable items like camera straps are a no-brainer. I'm a huge fan of rustic and genuine craftsmanship, and this camera strap is simple and personable.

Brookstone PhotoShare Smart Digital Picture Frame


You know what sparked my desire for a digital photography display in my home? The Apple TV screen saver! I'm greedy when it comes to choosing which pictures to display because, let's face it, there's no such thing as "the one." I want to show them all off! Countless times, I catch myself standing by my digital photo frame, lost in the moments captured that I've already forgotten. It's like taking a nostalgic journey every time I walk by as the images randomly rotate, creating a whole new presentation. It's a constant source of joy and nostalgia that brings forgotten moments back to life.


To put it simply, let's discard the idea that expensive, high-end equipment or a fancy degree isnecessary to enjoy photography. I believe that everyone should take pictures in their own way. The equipment I suggest isuser-friendly and an absolute delight to use. I want you to help your dad to fulfill his photography dreams and ignite his creative passion. I recognize that the price of gear doesn't always determine its quality (even though it does sometime...and it sucks). It's about discoveringthe right tools that align with your vision and passion. I hope this helps some of you!
