Please excuse our mess! Our website is currently undergoing some upgrades and will be back to normal in a few short days.

Make a list and check it twice. Maybe that is a list for you or a list for a special photographer in your life. We have hand selected a few items from around our stores that make excellent holiday gifts for photographers of all types. 

We believe cameras make great gifts, but then again we might be slightly biased! Check out some of our hand selected cameras and systems we all enjoy using here at Camera West. Of course, we have many many more cameras than what we have listed in this guide,  so let us know if you need help finding something specific!

We have chosen some of our favorites that you might wish to take a gander at. Of course, this is only a sample. We have bags in all shapes, sizes, colors, and purposes.


Billingham bags are handmade bags from England. The waterproof fabric, solid brass fittings and leather bits give an extra touch of class to this gift. Personally, we like to the Billingham Hadley Pro Smal in Red/Chocolate. We might even call this bag the "The North Pole Edition" for its overly festive spirit.
