Crater Lake, 2018

It’s that time of year, time to shop our little hearts out for family, friends and hopefully ourselves. All week I’ve been receiving emails for offers for photography related deals, so I had the thought to put a post together. This post will kick off with deals I’ve received so far, I will updated it over the weekend, through Cyber Monday, so perhaps consider bookmarking the link, in case you’d like to check back.

Alien Skin Software

Save an additional 15% off of any of the software by Alien Skin with promo code: ThankYou2018. Offer expires 11/26/18

I’ve been using Exposure for about 5 years now, it’s a great editor with awesome film simulations/presets, essential editing tools, layers, texture options and more. Check out some of my articles for Alien Skin on Exposure.

Expoimaging: Rogue Flashbenders

The folks at Expoimaging have a couple of cool offers… which expire at Noon on 11/27/18

Rogue XL Pro + FREE Super Soft Silver Reflector – $99.95 (regularly $129.90)

The XL Flashbender with grid is one of my go-to speedlight modifiers, especially if I’m travelling and want to travel light. The Super Soft Silver Reflector is also great, because the white side is a bit reflective, the silver side is more reflective, but not as intense as a shiny silver. I prefer the 20×40 size, for doing headshots, or full body portraits. You could select the 20×40 rectangular or the 32 round as your free reflector option.

Rogue 3-in-1 Flash Grid + Rogue Grid Gels for $49.95 (normally $67.90)

The 3-in-1 Flash Grids are great to add a hair light or create more dramatic lighting in general. The gel kits included will give you some great, creative options too!

I own a couple of these and use them for video, portraits on the go when I want a small, super portable light source. They pump out 1500 lumens of light and can be controlled by their accompanying app.

Think Tank Photo

50% off of the Airport Advantage Plus Roller!  (11/23/18 – 11/25/18)

40% off other selected Think Tank and Mindshift Gear bags.

I have been a long fan of (and user) of Think Tank Photo camera bags and rollers. I have the original Airport Advantage and it’s been fabulous for travel or just day to day transport to photo sessions. I also recently purchased the Side Path (from Mindshift Gear). I’ve used it for some travel when I’m going super light on gear, or if I’m going out for a hike for the day.

* Note, the Think Tank Photo link is an affiliate link, this means you get a Free Gift & Free Ground Shipping on orders more than $50 and I will also receive a gift.


Save up to $60 on Select Colour Management Tools.

If you’re a photographer, I would suggest the i1 Photography Kit, this includes the Colour Checker Passport and the i1 display. This combo is great to properly manage your colour in images.


SLR Lounge has a longer list of deals as well. I wanted to call out the ones above, as they are products and services I use, in some cases on a daily basis.
